They are missing Coglan from Essendons VFL team, who I reckon would get a fair look at.

M Jamar would surely have to be the ruck option.


Both the Geelong guys weren't ready to retire in Stokes and Kelly.


And Matthew Watson, Ive always like him. Not sure why he was delisted from Carlton.

They are also missing Zac O'Brien who was recruited from Essendon VFL club originally. Would also add hardness to the midfield.

To take a step back a little, what is it you need to achieve from your top up players? In looking at a few of the new best 22 sides, the 2 things that jump out are the massive hit in the engine room, and a lack of experience more than a lack of talent. So I think you need to pick up a few players to add some on-field experience to direct the young guys, but then a bunch of your top up players could actually just be players to add some depth in case of injury. You are not going to replace the likes of Heppel, Watson, Stanton, Myers with top up guys. So instead for me the wise thing would be to focus on player development for 2017 onwards. Add a few guys who can impart some game sense advice on field, and then get as much time into the youngsters as you can. The upside (if you can see it that way) is that pressure is off for the season, you're in a great position to school up the young guys without the pressure to get results.

I agree, I too would be getting games into the young guys. Worsfold and Essendon want to start fresh and it is the best way to do so.

Jamar was seen at training in Essendon gear. He will be a good pickup in my eyes.

It has been said that Jamar was applying for a coaching position at the Bombers,  But the same article was virtually non commital about him pulling boots on again.
