After an unsuccessful bid on Jack Bowes, Swans have selected Oliver Florent with pick #11.

183cm/74kg
22 July 1998
Half-forward, midfielder.

AFL.com.au Bio:
"Florent is an active, vibrant half-forward who can swoop on the ball and make things happen. He'll need to continue to polish his foot skills, but he finds chances around goal, has a nice side step to get around traffic, and creates opportunities. A standout performance in the NAB All Stars Under-18s game saw him rack up 29 disposals and seven clearances as part of a strong end to his season. Florent will become more consistent in time but can do classy things that catch the eye. He impressed at the NAB AFL Draft Combine and recorded the equal highest beep test (15.1)."

To have had the season he has had with a terminally ill father is admirable. Stoked to have his speed on board.

Best on ground in the NAB All Star game - he can compete with the best.

I must be missing why this guy has been rated so highly as none of his highlights seem that impressive. Still, I would love to be proven wrong.

He sat with his Dad while he died this year. The kids back half of the year was sensational. Absolutely stoked he's on board.
