Louis Blues absence from top spot in the TSN. With the AFL trade period completed and the national, pre-season and rookie drafts on the horizon, what does your club need to do to bolster its list?ESPN.com.au draft expert Christopher Doerre has analysed every AFL club to work out their key weaknesses, and which draftees they should target on November 25.AdelaideList needs?1. Star power through the midfield - (after Rory Sloane there is no second star)2. High-quality half-forward flanker who can push up through the midfield - (Wayne Milera may with time and development become one, but another would further enhance the clubs best 22)3. Young ruck options - (with Sam Jacobs 29, and Reilly OBrien and Paul Hunter not ready to replace him, another ruckman should be drafted this year to spread the age demographic and to allow enough time to potentially develop his successor, if OBrien and Hunter do not develop into adequate replacements)4. Talented medium forward - (someone who can complement the current group of tall and small forwards)Draft picks:?13, 43, 53, 67, 89, 107, 125, 143Who should they draft? With pick 13, Daniel Venables and Sam Powell-Pepper are two who can play forward and through the midfield. Both possess explosiveness and power. Venables is the more damaging kick, with Powell-Pepper the more powerful contested-ball winner.Potential father-son draftee Ben Jarman has been nominated by Adelaide and likely joins the club somewhere around the third round.Through the ruck, under-18 prospects Sean Darcy, Jordan Sweet, Jeremy Goddard and Peter Ladhams are among those Adelaide should consider late or in the rookie draft. Otherwise there are several talented ruckmen in next years draft who are expected to feature prominently.Lachlan Tiziani in the back-end of the draft or as a rookie would also fit as a talented medium forward.BrisbaneList needs?1. Veteran experience and leadership to maximise young player development - (Stefan Martin being the only player older than 27 years of age should ring alarm bells)2. A more experienced and better-balanced back half, with more small and medium sized types - (Brisbane conceded 2872 points in the 2016 home and away season which was the most in the AFL - 516 more than Essendon and almost double Sydneys 1469. Historically, successful backlines are those who have played together the longest and have developed chemistry over time. Brisbane need this and some smaller and medium types to complement their 2016 back half, which too tall)3. Quality general forwards - (Brisbane have lots of players who split their time between playing forward and midfield but lack a quality pure small or medium forward who can provide heavy scoreboard impact)4. Midfield star power - (Tom Rockliff and Dayne Beams when healthy are excellent, but they need more support)5. A second top-tier key forward to compliment Josh Schache - (Brisbane may have this already in Eric Hipwood but while the club has good depth of key backmen, Hipwood may be even better as a key defender. Connor Ballenden may also join the club next season through the clubs Academy and become a key forward who relieves through the ruck, but even then, Brisbane feel a premium key forward short)6. Another ruckman - (with Martin turning 30 this month and Archie Smith Brisbanes only other ruckman, further depth is required to adequately cover for injuries)Draft picks:? 3, 16, 21, 22, 76, 78, 96, 114, 132Who should they draft?Ben Ainsworth if picked at No. 3 adds to the front half and midfield.Key forward Todd Marshall, if he slides to pick 16, would represent terrific value. Alongside Schache and potentially Ballenden, who Brisbane may draft in 2017 as a key forward and ruckman, a promising trio could form to build around long-term. For now, SANFL star Brett Eddy could be a suitable stop-gap key forward while Brisbanes young key forward group develop.Alex Witherden and Jarrod Berry as general backmen around pick 16 would also be strong list fits.Jacob Allison and Declan Watson as a tall utility and key defender respectively via Brisbanes Academy would make a lot of sense and likely represent strong value mid to late draft.Brisbane late in the national draft or in the rookie draft would also be advised to take one of Rowan Marshall, Darcy Cameron or Oscar McInerney to their depth stocks.CarltonList needs1. Star power through midfield to compliment Patrick Cripps - (Carlton were the AFLs worst in winning centre clearances last year at 10.4 per game, less even than Essendon. With Marc Murphy and Bryce Gibbs the wrong side of 25, the urgency is high)2. A young ruckman to eventually succeed Matthew Kreuzer (with 24-year-old Daniel Gorringe Carltons youngest ruckman, someone younger will need to be introduced into the mix with Carltons ruck division inspiring little confidence and contributing significantly to Carltons problems at stoppages)3. Crumbing small forward who can kick 30+ goals in a season and heap on the forward pressure - (since the departures of Eddie Betts and Jeff Garlett, Carlton have lacked a high-quality crumbing small forward. Jarrod Pickett may fill this role, though based on his junior footy, if he does make the grade he is more likely to play a Lewis Jetta type role off half-forward and pushing up onto a wing)4. A star key forward to build the front half around - (Charlie Curnow and Harry McKay, who were selected early last year may develop, but a star key forward to build around and pair with that young duo, if they both develop, would be optimal)Draft picks:? 5, 25, 48, 63, 66, 70, 81, 99, 117Who should they draft?Will Brodie if available at pick No. 5 can take the pressure of Cripps.Through the ruck, under-18 prospects Sean Darcy, Jordan Sweet, Jeremy Goddard and Peter Ladhams if available late draft or as rookies would be suitable list fits and may be developable young ruckmen. Otherwise, next year there are lots of talented rucks who may feature towards the top of the draft.As small forwards, late draft or as rookies, Tyson Stengle, Kym LeBois, Sam Fowler, Dan Allsop, Kyle Kirby and Willie Rioli are some names who may be considered.CollingwoodList needs1. Veteran experience and leadership - (new list additions Daniel Wells and Lynden Dunn are the only players over 30 on the Pies list. Collingwoods youth in 2007 and 2010 experienced the greatest growth under the veteran leadership of Nathan Buckley, James Clement, Anthony Rocca and Scott Burns, and Nick Maxwell, Luke Ball, Scott Pendlebury respectively. Strong veteran cores, complimenting strong coaching created these positive environments that allowed Collingwoods youth to be fast-tracked. It is clear that Collingwood, to replicate those results, need more than just Pendlebury leading the way and aiding the young in their development to maximise results)2. Midfield star power - (losing Dane Swan, Dayne Beams, Dale Thomas and Ball in as many seasons has seen the midfield slide. Last season, Collingwood were 13th in centre clearances and equal 14th for clearances. Jordan De Goey with a strong preseason may help here, but another genuine star is required to compliment Pendlebury, Adam Treloar, Steele Sidebottom and Taylor Adams through the midfield)3. Young key forward - (Darcy Moore is the key forward Collingwood will build around but he needs someone of quality to pair with long-term)4. Young key defender - (Key defence stocks are aging and a new gun key defender is needed to eventually take over from Ben Reid)5. Crumbing small forward who can kick 30+ goals in a season and heap on the forward pressure - (Collingwood have lots of marking smalls in Jamie Elliott and Alex Fasolo but lack that genuine star ground-level forward to complement the front half)Draft picks:? 28, 44, 51, 62, 65, 83, 101, 105, 119, 137.Who should they draft?At pick 28, Brennan Cox as a key defender may be considered.Potential father-son choices Callum Brown and Josh Daicos will be nominated by Collingwood and may both join the Pies depending on bids from other clubs.As small forwards, late draft or as rookies, Tyson Stengle, Kym LeBois, Sam Fowler, Dan Allsop, Kyle Kirby and Willie Rioli are some names who may be considered.As a rookie, Collingwood would also benefit from considering Brett Eddy as a stop-gap key forward.EssendonList needs1. A contested-ball winning beast through the midfield - (Alongside Jobe Watson, someone with similar size and power at the coalface is required to pair with Dyson Heppell and the clubs young, developing midfield group)2. Elite young outside midfielder - (Brendon Goddard and Brent Stanton are nearing the end and lack obvious successors)3. Second high-quality key forward to pair long-term with Joe Daniher - (ex-Giant James Stewart may be good enough but optimally Daniher should have a second star key forward to pair with, allowing Cale Hooker to play back)4. Young ruckman to develop and eventually succeed Matthew Leuenberger and Tom Bellchambers - (with Gach Nyuon delisted, a second young ruckman would be beneficial)5. Crumbing small forward who can kick 30+ goals in a season and heap on the forward pressure (Orazio Fantasia is a talent but needs more support in the front half)Draft picks:?1, 20, 29, 41, 68, 95, 113, 131Who should they draft?Hugh McCluggage with the first pick overall is a great list fit both through the midfield and up forward.Around picks 29 and 41 there are likely to be some strong-bodied midfielders still available with Jonty Scharenberg, Dylan Clarke, Jack Graham and Willem Drew among a larger group Essendon may consider with one of those selections.Through the ruck, under-18 prospects Sean Darcy, Jordan Sweet, Jeremy Goddard and Peter Ladhams if there late draft or as rookies would be suitable list fits and may be developable young ruckmen. Otherwise next year there are lots of talented rucks who may feature towards the top of the draft.As small forwards, late draft or as rookies, Tyson Stengle, Kym LeBois, Sam Fowler, Dan Allsop, Kyle Kirby and Willie Rioli are some names who may be considered.As a stop gap key forward, Essendon would benefit from considering Brett Eddy.FremantleList needs1. More quality youth - (the process is starting but more required with overreliance on established veterans)2. High-level key forward - (Cam McCarthy looks likely but would benefit from playing alongside a second key forward of equal or greater talent. Michael Apeness is developing and a possible relieving ruckman, but even if he develops Fremantle would benefit from another talented key forward to complement the pair)3. Ruckman to succeed Aaron Sandilands - (with Sandilands 33, Jon Griffin 30 and Zac Clarke the clubs only ruckman, the recruitment of a young big man who can succeed Sandilands would be timely)4. Quality young general defenders - (with Fremantles back half aging, it is time for the Dockers to select the next generation of small and medium defenders)5. Inside midfielders - (with Michael Barlow delisted and David Mundy 31, Fremantle are starting to look thin through the midfield. Some young, quality midfielders to complement Nat Fyfe and Lachie Neale would be ideal)Draft picks:? 7, 35, 40, 71, 79, 97, 115, 133Who should they draft?Tim English with pick No. 7 would be an ideal choice as a ruckman given the age of Sandilands and Griffin.Around Fremantles pick 35 and 40, there will be good depth of general defenders with Isaac Cumming, Luke Ryan and Cameron Zurhaar among those who may be chosen around that point.In the rookie draft, there should still be good depth of inside midfielders. West Australian midfielders Quinton Narkle, Matt Guelfi and Liam Baker are among a larger group who may receive consideration if available. Ben Ronke, Brodie Romensky, Lachlan Walker and mature-ager Jye Bolton if there may also late draft represent strong value.GeelongList needs1. High-level key forward - (with a view to drafting someone who can in time succeed Tom Hawkins. There is no likely replacement on Geelongs list currently. With key forwards taking around four years to develop into consistent AFL players, Geelong need to act this year or next)2. Quality general defenders - (with Corey Enright retiring and Andrew Mackie likely to follow soon, Geelong need to stock up down back and find and develop a defensive group that can succeed long-term)3. Young star power through the midfield - (the reliance is too high on Patrick Dangerfield and Joel Selwood. Both at stoppages and on the outside Geelong need more young stars to reduce the load on their star duo)Draft picks:? 24, 38, 42, 64, 72, 74, 91, 110, 128, 146Who should they draft?Patrick Kerr at pick No. 24 may be someone Geelong draft with a view to eventually take over from Hawkins. Failing Kerr being there, Geelong probably have to wait until next offseason to find a suitable successor.Around Geelongs pick 38 and 42, there will be good depth of general defenders with Isaac Cumming, Luke Ryan and Cameron Zurhaar those options. Failing those players being there Harry Morrison, Bailey Morrish and Tom Williamson may be among that next group of general defenders considered.As midfielders, its possible given the depth this year that several of Dylan Clarke, Jonty Scharenberg, Jack Graham, Zac Fisher, Kobe Mutch and Willem Drew are available at 38 and 42. If there, they could be among the names thought good enough to help spread the midfield load.Gold CoastList needs1. Several premier midfielders - (with Gary Ablett in the latter stages of his career and little genuine support after the departures of Dion Prestia and Jaeger OMeara)2. Veteran leadership and experience - (to aid the development of the clubs youth)3. Experienced, quality general defenders who play both ways and use the ball efficiently - (with inefficient ball use and a lack of cohesion and experience down back still present)4. Another key forward to compliment Tom Lynch and Peter Wright long-term - (Lynch and Wright are both are terrific but otherwise there are no other genuine key forwards on the clubs list)Draft picks:? 4, 6, 8, 10, 73, 98, 116, 134Who should they draft?Jack Bowes and Brad Scheer through Gold Coasts Academy are musts through the midfield.It is likely Gold Coast selects further midfielders with their other early selections. Some of those names mentioned in Gold Coasts 4-10 range include Jack Scrimshaw, Will Brodie, Sam Petrevski-Seton, Oliver Florent, Tim Taranto, Griffin Logue and Daniel Venables.GWSList needs1. Crumbing small forward who can kick 30+ goals in a season and heap on the forward pressure - (Devon Smith is GWS primary pressure forward but optimally he would be complemented by someone who can do the same things but also provide heavier scoreboard impact given how many talls in Jeremy Cameron, Jon Patton and Rory Lobb play such prominent roles up front)2. Quality general defenders - (with a view to find a successor to HHeath Shaw)3. Jets Stitched Jerseys. . A No. 1 ruckman - (to succeed Shane Mumford. Lobb could be that player but looks best suited as a relieving ruckman who plays mostly forward, with his greatest strength his contested marking inside 50m)Draft picks:? 2, 15, 37, 39, 45, 52, 55, 57, 58, 59, 60, 77, 109, 127, 135, 145Who should they draft?Will Setterfield, Harry Perryman, Zachary Sproule and Harrison Macreadie look likely through GWS Academy and will add to the clubs midfield and key position stocks respectively.Andrew McGrath at pick No.2, if there, would be an ideal Shaw successor with his run off half-back.As crumbing forwards, GWS should look to the rookie draft with Tyson Stengle, Kym LeBois, Sam Fowler, Dan Allsop, Kyle Kirby and Willie Rioli some names who may be available and fill the list need.HawthornList needs1. Quality youth - (the better part of Hawthorns list are 25 and older. When Luke Hodge and Shaun Burgoyne retire, likely at the end of next season, Hawthorn will need to shift their focus more to the draft and start introducing more young talent)2. Young, star inside midfielders - (Tom Mitchell and Jaeger OMeara add to the midfield but theyll need more quality around them for Hawthorn to have a successful midfield in the future)3. Young key defenders - (Kaiden Brand may be one key defender for the future but with Hawthorns key defence stocks otherwise aging, more will be required)4. Young key forwards - (With Jarryd Roughead nearing 30, Ty Vickery, 26 and Jack Gunston, 25, Hawthorn need to start drafting some young key forwards over the coming seasons, with key forwards taking around four years to develop into consistent AFL footballers)5. Young ruckman - (With Ben McEvoy 27 and Jon Ceglar 25, Hawthorn should over the coming seasons be looking to draft and develop their next generation ruckman. Marc Pittonet, 20, may be the solution but is the only option at the moment, with another ruck addition over the coming seasons advised)Draft picks:? 88, 90, 108, 126, 144Who should they draft? Coming into the draft so late, Hawthorn will be limited to taking the leftovers.Esava Ratugolea late in the draft if still available while raw is a talented key position player who could with time develop into a key position post.Late draft as midfielders, Ben Ronke, Brodie Romensky, Lachlan Walker and mature-ager Jye Bolton may be among those available representing strong value.Through the ruck it would make sense for Hawthorn to take one of the under-18 ruckmen in Sean Darcy, Jordan Sweet, Jeremy Goddard and Peter Ladhams if there late draft or as rookies.MelbourneList needs1. Relieving ruck (with Cam Pedersen, 29, and Jake Spencer, 27, Melbournes primary options relieving Max Gawn through the ruck, another ready-to-go option is vital)?2. Experienced veterans who can provide further leadership to the young group - (Nathan Jones is the clear leader but would benefit from further support)3. Outside midfielders - (specifically players who are damaging with ball in hand)4. General forwards - (to support Jesse Hogan, some quality small and medium forwards could be introduced to better balance the front half and provide better forward pressure)5. General defenders - (Michael Hibberd is a solid list addition but another high-quality general defender would improve Melbourne even further)Draft picks:?47, 69, 84, 102, 120, 138Who should they draft? GWS Academy medium forward Lachlan Tiziani (a talented top-ager) would fit well and may be available when Melbourne enter the draft. High-leaping mature-age forward Liam Ryan would also add significant excitement to Melbournes front half.As general defenders, Harry Morrison, Bailey Morrish and Tom Williamson may be among those who may still be available to Melbourne in the latter half of the draft.Esava Ratugolea late in the draft if still available may if available be Melbournes best choice towards filling the clubs relieving ruck need. He will take time to develop but may with time be able to fill the position.?North MelbourneList needs?1. Quality youth - (North Melbourne have been competitive on the back in the most part of the work of their 25-and-overs. The Roos will need to draft very well over future seasons to prevent a nose-dive in coming seasons)2. Midfield star power - (Their current group consists of hard, workmanlike midfielders but lacks a genuine star or two)3. Outside run and carry - (Sam Gibson runs all day but is 30. A new high-level outside player or two is required)4. Young, star key forward - (Ben Brown is good and Mason Wood can complement him, but ultimately a gun key forward to succeed Jarryd Waite is a missing component)5. Crumbing small forward who can kick 30+ goals in a season and heap on the forward pressure - (there is presently no obvious successor to Lindsay Thomas, 28)Draft picks:?11, 32, 33, 87, 92, 123, 141Who should they draft?At pick No. 11, North Melbourne would like Oliver Florent or Sam Petreveski-Seton available to provide outside run.As small forwards, late draft or as rookies, Tyson Stengle, Kym LeBois, Sam Fowler, Dan Allsop, Kyle Kirby and Willie Rioli are some names who may be considered.Port AdelaideList needs1. Young star key forward - (With Jay Schulz retired, Justin Westhoff 30 and Charlie Dixon 26 but injury-prone, a young star key forward long-term is needed)2. Ruckman who can succeed Patrick Ryder and Matthew Lobbe - (with Ryder 28, having missed the 2016 season and Lobbe 27 performing below expectation -- the developing Billy Frampton is the clubs only other ruckman -- someone who can provide immediate depth and potentially be there long-term is advised)3. Young star midfielders - (Ollie Wines is a gun but with Travis Boak and Robbie Gray both 28, Port Adelaide need to find some star midfielders for the future)4. Running outside midfielders who find enough of the ball and use it efficiently - (the injury-prone Hamish Hartlett needs more help and an eventual successor)5. Crumbing small forward who can kick 30+ goals in a season and heap on the forward pressure - (Angus Monfries will be welcomed back in 2017 but a longer-term star crumbing forward is another missing element)Draft picks:?14, 17, 30, 31, 85, 103, 121, 139Who should they draft?Todd Marshall, if there at 14, may be the young key forward needed. Failing Marshall being there, Brett Eddy as a rookie could be an appropriate stop-gap who is good enough to step up and play at AFL level as required.At 14 or 17, Jy Simpkin as a ball-using outside player could be a fit.As developable midfielders with some star qualities, Daniel Venables and Sam Powell-Pepper may be two worth consideration at 14 or 17.Port Adelaide in the rookie draft would also be advised to take one of Rowan Marshall, Darcy Cameron or Oscar McInerney to add to the clubs ruck stocks.As small forwards, late draft or as rookies, Tyson Stengle, Kym LeBois, Sam Fowler, Dan Allsop, Kyle Kirby and Willie Rioli are some names who may be considered.RichmondList needs1. Quality youth - (Richmond have been competitive on the back of their 25-and-overs. They will need to draft very well over future seasons to not fall down to the bottom of the ladder over coming seasons)2. Star power through midfield - (Dion Prestia is a good addition and Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin are the driving forces through the midfield. More high-end midfielders will be required for Richmond to take the next step)3. An immediate ruckman - (with Ivan Maric declining, Shaun Hampton ineffective around the ground and Ivan Soldo and Mabior Chol development projects, Richmond need another ruckman who can contribute now and potentially take over from Hampton as the clubs best ruckman)4. Young star key forward to succeed Jack Riewoldt - (with Riewoldt 28 and key forwards generally taking around four seasons to develop into consistent AFL standard performers, this year or next year is the time to find the next key forward to build around)5. Quality young general defenders - (Richmond have some components down back but ultimately after Bachar Houli, 28, lack a second, high-quality small or medium defender)Draft picks:?27, 56, 82, 100, 118, 136Who should they draft?Isaac Cumming from the GWS Academy would be a suitable list fit at No. 27 as a back flanker who can provide run from defence but also use the ball cleanly and make good decisions.Richmond late in the national draft or in the rookie draft would also be advised to take one of Rowan Marshall, Darcy Cameron or Oscar McInerney to improve the clubs ruck stocks.St KildaList needs1. Midfield star power - (Jack Steven is a jet but otherwise St Kilda have several very good midfielders but no second genuine gun)2. High-quality outside midfielder - (Jack Newnes is good and Jack Billings can develop further, but even so, St Kilda are at least one high-quality outside midfielder short)3. Crumbing small forward who can kick 30+ goals in a season and heap on the forward pressure - (since the retirement of Stephen Milne, St Kilda have lacked that genuine small crumbing forward who can provide heavy scoreboard impact and compliment the clubs key forwards).4. Young ruckman - (with Billy Longer and Lewis Pierce the only ruckmen under the age of 25, and with Longers development stalling, a young ruckman to have developing for the long-term would be advised)5. Young key defender - (Jake Carlisle will be a welcome addition down back and Hugh Goddard in time looks developable, but ideally this year or next year another promising young key defender is added)Draft picks:? 23, 36, 61, 86, 104, 122, 140Who should they draft?Sam Powell-Pepper if available at No. 23 would represent strong value and could be a future midfielder.Ben Ronke, Brodie Romensky and Lachlan Walker are among some other midfielders with some impressive attributes who should be available late draft or as rookies.Through the ruck, under-18 prospects Sean Darcy, Jordan Sweet, Jeremy Goddard and Peter Ladhams if there as rookies would be suitable list fits and add to the clubs ruck stocks. Otherwise next year there are lots of talented rucks who may feature towards the top of the draft.As small forwards, late draft or as rookies, Tyson Stengle, Kym LeBois, Sam Fowler, Dan Allsop, Kyle Kirby and Willie Rioli are some names who may be considered.SydneyList needs1. Outside run and carry - (with the retirements of Rhyce Shaw, Adam Goodes and the trade of Lewis Jetta to West Coast ahead of last season, Sydney have lacked pace on the outside, getting exposed by Western Bulldogs on grand final day)2. Young players who can create run and drive off half-back - (with Shaw and Nick Malceski no longer in the back half and the outside runners not there either, the slingshot footy Sydney once played starting off half-back is no longer apparent)3. Young key defenders - (Aliir Aliir is a find but long-term he will need another one or two key defenders to partner with him, with Heath Grundy now 30 and Ted Richards retired)4. Young key forwards - (with Lance Franklin, 29, Kurt Tippett, 29 and the injury-prone Sam Reid turning 25 in November, this year or next year Sydney will need to start looking to the draft to find their next long-term key forward)Draft picks:?9, 19, 46, 49, 93, 111, 129, 147Who should they draft?With picks nine and 19, Oliver Florent and Cedric Cox would be ideal list fits to provide Sydney with more outside run.Griffin Logue is also firmly of interest to Sydney at pick No. 9 as a key defender.As general defenders who can provide some drive off half-back Harry Morrison, Bailey Morrish and Tom Williamson may be suitable choices around Sydneys picks in the 40s.West CoastList needs1. Next generation midfield brigade - (with a view towards having a strong midfield group once Matt Priddis, 31 and Sam Mitchell, 34 retire)2. Outside runners - (Andrew Gaff is one who runs all day and Lewis Jetta can push up the ground and provide meaningful drive, but on the big Domain Stadium, more outside running players would be beneficial to West Coasts midfield balance)3. Crumbing small forward who can kick 30+ goals in a season and heap on the forward pressure - (this has been something West Coast have long lacked. Mark LeCras, 30 is an excellent forward but wont be around forever. To complement the clubs key forwards a high-level crumbing forward would be an ideal list addition)4. Young key forward - (with Josh Kennedy 29, it is time for West Coast to consider drafting a future franchise key forward to develop under Kennedy for a few years and eventually take over the reigns)Draft picks:?12, 34, 54, 106, 124, 142Who should they draft?Father-son prospect Jake Waterman was nominated by West Coast and is likely to be chosen late in the national draft as a marking forward.Todd Marshall at pick No. 12 as a key forward in this draft is the most obvious replacement with time and development for Josh Kennedy.Daniel Venables and Sam Powell-Pepper would also make sense around pick 12 with their scope to improve as explosive midfielders. Sam Petrevski-Seton if he slides to 12 also would represent terrific value as an outside runner.As small forwards, late draft or as rookies, Tyson Stengle, Kym LeBois, Sam Fowler, Dan Allsop, Kyle Kirby and Willie Rioli are some names who may be considered.Western BulldogsList needs1. Quality ruckman - (Jordan Roughead in combination with Tom Boyd is acceptable but not ideal for a premiership side hoping to go back-to-back)2. Crumbing small forward who can kick 30+ goals in a season and heap on the forward pressure - - (the Bulldogs have a tall front half with Travis Cloke, Boyd, Jake Stringer and Stewart Crameri. Ideally a premium quality crumbing small forward would be added to this group to compliment what the Dogs already have)3. Key defender - (with Dale Morris turning 34 in December, the Bulldogs would benefit from adding a further key defender to compliment Marcus Adams and potentially Kieran Collins in the future)4. Young general backmen - (with Matthew Boyd, 34, Bob Murphy, 34, Matt Suckling 28 and Easton Wood 27, the Bulldogs have excellent depth down back but this year or next must consider adding general backmen)Draft picks:?18, 26, 50, 75, 80, 94, 112, 130, 148Who should they draft?Alex Witherden and Jarrod Berry make sense for the Dogs around their pick No. 18 as general backmen with the versatility to play elsewhere.Isaac Cumming around pick 26 could also be selected as a back flanker for the future. Alternatively, if the Bulldogs would like to enhance their key defence stocks, they may look into Brennan Cox.As small forwards, late draft or as rookies, Tyson Stengle, Kym LeBois, Sam Fowler, Dan Allsop, Kyle Kirby and Willie Rioli are some names who may be considered.
