IS IT a small forward? A tall back? A key defender?

Collingwood recruiting boss Derek Hine joins host Cal Twomey on the Road to the Draft podcast this week to talk through the Pies' plans at the upcoming NAB AFL Draft.

Hine discusses the Magpies' most pressing list needs and how the club looks to address the gaps in its group, and who could be in the mix at this year's draft.

He also details the club's hopes for more pick swaps, where a bid for father-son Nick Daicos could come, the next generation of Magpies he expects to rise in 2022 and the latest on contract negotiations with star trio Jordan De Goey, Darcy Moore and Brayden Maynard ahead of their free agency season next year.

Tune in for the latest in the world of the draft, trade and player movement space as draft prospects, club list managers and recruiters join Road to the Draft for exclusive interviews.
