Collingwood draftee Jaidyn Stephenson is determined to repay the Magpies' faith for selecting him at No.6.

Clubs were alerted to an irregularity with Stephenson's heart in early October, throwing a cloud over where he would fall in the draft.

But the Magpies had no such concerns for the smooth Eastern Ranges midfielder, who had a brilliant 2017. 

The young midfielder revealed he knew about the condition since he was 16 years old but said the irregularity was not severe enough to cause him any serious worry.

Stephenson was tipped to go anywhere from the top-five all the way down towards the end of the first round.

Tyler fulfils childhood dream

Highlights of Pick 50 Tyler Brown Get to know Tyler Brown, the player chosen by Collingwood at pick No. 50 in the 2017 National Draft. Tyler is the son of club great, Gavin.

On the surface of it, Tyler Brown’s arrival at Collingwood was always going to happen.

The son of the famed 254-game, 1990 premiership hero Gavin and brother of rising star Callum, Tyler was always destined to wear the Black and White jumper.

“Tyler is a very different player to Callum, who is a very inside player with his hands. Tyler is taller – above 185cm – he plays on a wing, he’s very well balanced and slides through traffic,” National Recruiting Manager Derek Hine told Collingwood Media.

“I’m not saying that he is an outside player, but he is not purely inside. He uses his hands really well and is really balanced in the way...

Pies' 2017 draft recap

It was a draft like no other.

At least that’s how Collingwood’s National Recruiting Manager Derek Hine defined it.

Heading into the 2017 AFL National Draft with four picks to choose from – including the club's first top-ten pick since 2014, as well as a father/son prospect on the draft board - Collingwood’s recruiting team had some big decisions to make.

Ultimately, when the night concluded, three new names were penciled into the club's history books.

“It was a draft like no other,” Hine told Collingwood Media following the draft proceedings.

“I think the amount of picks and the evenness of the draft, was really unique.

“You could see that with the amount of players jumping forward and jumping back (on the draft board).

The kid from Collingwood Street

Nathan Murphy’s family will be rushing back to Melbourne after their boy became a Magpie at the National Draft in Western Sydney on Friday night.

Why?

They just moved into a new house.

Where?

Collingwood Street.

That's an omen if there’s ever been one.

A night away from the unpacking was a nervous one for the four-person Murphy contingent in the draft room. Nathan was joined by mum Deborah, dad Shaun and elder sister Jessica, while middle sister, Carly, instead opted for a music festival.

Murphy impressed with the Sandringham Dragons in 2017. In 12 months he’d gone from gun cricketer who dabbled in school footy to a potential first round draft pick. It meant he was one of the 20 players invited by the AFL to be in the room and experience the draft first-hand at the Sydney Showgrounds

AFL Media, the Herald Sun and Fox Footy had him at pick 16, while SEN believed he would fall to Geelong at...

Draft gems of the Pies’ past

When you look back on some of the past AFL National Drafts, some of the best stories arise from the players who were picked in the later rounds of the proceedings.

Collingwood will take selections No. 6, No. 38, No. 56 and No. 61 into Friday’s National Draft, with later picks to be used in the Rookie Draft the following Monday.

Although the Pies haven’t had a top ten pick since 2014, they have produced plenty of elite footballers who were picked deeper into the draft.

Collingwood Media takes a look back at some of the draft gems of the Pies’ past.

NATIONAL DRAFT SELECTIONS

LEON DAVIS – PICK 34, 1999

A fan favourite throughout his 11-year career with the Magpies, Leon Davis was drafted from Western Australia via the second round of the 1999 AFL Draft. Known for his quick feet and x-factor tendancies in the forward line, Davis enjoyed a 225-game, 270-goal career with Collingwood. After...

First VFLW players signed

Collingwood’s VFL Women’s team has its first players.

Ahead of the inaugural VFLW campaign in 2018, the Magpies have secured Sophie Alexander and Jessica Edwards as the side’s first two players.

They will be joined by Collingwood’s AFLW stars, plus other up-and-coming female footballers when the revamped state league kicks off in May.

In Alexander, the Magpies gain a player who was considered by many as unlucky to not be selected by an AFLW side in October’s draft.

The dream is not over for the 24-year-old, with Women’s Football Operations manager Mathew James aware of the fact she may soon be summoned to the big stage.

“We’re honest in knowing that Sophie will probably only play for us in the VFLW for one year before hopefully being drafted when the AFLW expands in 2019,” James told Collingwood Media.

“However, she is someone who we think can lead that group and add a diverse skill set.”

Different approach welcomed by Howe

The Grind Ep1: New beginnings The Holden Centre is buzzing yet again. Watch as new Collingwood Media documentary series 'The Grind' tracks the returning players and learns more about new faces set to become familiar in 2018.

It's not often you see match simulation and one-on-one contests dominate the program on day one of pre-season.

But that's what happened at Collingwood on Monday, with the Magpies declaring competiveness as their 2018 summer training mantra.

For the Pies, gone are the days of the footballs staying in the sheds until after Christmas, with the club identifying a need to set a high standard of physicality early.

High-flyer Jeremy Howe said on Monday the different approach was welcomed by the players, as the whole list resumed training for the first time.

"This pre-season is all about competitiveness, one v one contests," Howe said.

"The training is as close to match...

After a two-week headstart, Collingwood's younger players had company as they showed for training on Monday morning. 

Returning were the senior members of the 2018 list, from 32-year-old Daniel Wells, to the likes of Brodie Grundy and Tim Broomhead who have only this year been at the club long enough for an extra fortnight away from the Holden Centre. 

Captain Scott Pendlebury trained, albeit with a brace on his finger designed to protect a finger broken in the recent International Rules series against Ireland.
