If he's going to be bid up to an inflated price, then The Blues surely wouldn't want him, even as a last resort. In any case, he's not a good fit, because our system places a lot of emphasis on the centre's defensive abilities, and big size is one of the keys to that. Wellwood would have to be exceptionally good a defensive positioning and have a nasty physical game to make up for his lack of size. He DOESN'T bring those qualities. So, I see him going elsewhere.
