    Amazed at how Hardwick didn’t get a gig in defence in the under 22. Didn’t even get a squad spot.

    Probably the best young 1-on-1 small-medium defender in the comp.

    Yes people are untitled to their opinion but you have just giving you're opinion on his skills and ruckwork that are all inaccurate. Like I said. I'm sure Grundy would have been close to Tim's weight in his 2nd year.

    I had to read the squad about 4 times just because I couldn't understand why I wasn't seeing his name.
    I think I have given up on the 22 under 22 side anyway after Toby McLean didn't make it...

    You guys cried when McGrath was deemed better than Burton, now you're crying that he's better rated than Hardwick. Are we going for a hat-trick, which B-Grader are you going to whinge about McGrath disrespecting next year?

    And he has only put on 2 kg's since drafted? What are you talking about more like it. You have this thing saying he won't make it as being very good, most people who know say he will. Now go away.

    Don't think you'll find anyone that doesn't rate his grand final game, but he's a second year inside midfielder and he averages 14 disposals (5 contested) and 0.3 goals a game. Rate them over their body of work not just one game - otherwise Tom Boyd would be considered the best player from the 2013 draft class. His tackling work is excellent though

    Why does he need to put on more?...

    He was AFL ready when he was drafted, he wouldn't be ready if he needed to put on another 10 kgs..

    Why is it so hard for you to believe that Grundy was 100kgs when he came as a 18 year old? lol we got hard evidence here

    He doesn’t get picked on his possessions ...one of our leading pressure act players, which is why we are in another prelim⏱

    He might be a good tackler but that doesn't get him anywhere near a spot. Gotta have more to your game than one category.

    Did you watch the 2017 grand final? How did Sloane play after half time?

    Youre basing a players talent on how well he tagged a player for one half of one game. Yeah no, my mistake. Hes a star.

    He tagged out thier best player and kicked 3 goals and was in the Norm smith votes.... in his 5th game.
    Name any player in the history of the VFL/AFL that has gone close to that???

    This year he has lead our players in pressure acts .... you keep looking at fantasy points.

    Where is Berry?
    On potential
    I’d take him on top of that list
    Has Cripps potential

    Purely comparing the Brisbane draftees my ranking in terms of potential would be:

    Berry
    McCluggage
    Witherden

    McCluggage started to show why he was expected to be the number 1 pick this year so the gap between Berry and McCluggage really comes down to size and role for me. Witherden while a great draft pick is a bit further back from those two.

    Hopefully in a couple years time Morrison will be up for consideration in the top 10 picks.
