DRAFT PROFILE Bio, stats, highlights and more

The brutish half-back with a long kick and powerful body will be one of the most interesting players to follow on draft night. What you see is what you get with Gould, and his achievements have been terrific: he's a back-to-back All Australian and he played in Glenelg's senior premiership this year. Some clubs wonder about his role at AFL level as a third tall defender, but the Suns are known to be fans and could look at him at this point of the draft.

Profile

Tall defender who captained his state showing composure and on-field leadership in big moments. Strong overhead and a fine contested ball-winner, he reads the play exceptionally well and is a prodigious kick. He had an excellent 2019 AFL Under-18 Championships, averaging 21.5 disposals, 4.5 marks and 7.2 rebound 50s to be awarded All Australian honours in consecutive years. He also played senior football all year at Glenelg, averaging 19.7 disposals and 5.2 marks.

Absolutely stoked with this pick, should have been top ten on his resume but clubs wavered. Played a significant role in the SANFL premiership and an outstanding leader.

Laughing now that KB told him he'd never get drafted with those skinfolds! Has knuckled down after that losing weight and pre season will see him transform.

With his natural ability and significant games at senior SANFL level against men I'd be surprised if he's not a R1 debutant. Draft steal

Beast. Could have played AFL this year frame wise. Ignore his weight that was after getting smashed drinking piss after winning the SANFL GF. Big country boy, same town as Fogarty. He'll be more the late 90's in kg's so you haven't drafted michellin man. Natural leader, powerful kid, big booming kick and reads the play like a book back there with interepts,the consmate general in defence. Captain material and will fly the flag. Had him at #10 on my board, only slid due to his lack of perceived upside and his 106kg and skinfolds testing.

Cross between Shannon Hurn and Heath Grundy
