I think it's less likely with this kid than in a normal year - I reckon he'll be as good, if not better than Walsh, as he's such a natural footballer with speed and endurance who can hit the scoreboard and shows up in big games. He's also not one of those cases of a early developer playing a "man against boys" type of game, which is something you often see with top end draft picks who end up not being quite as good at AFL level.Like most number 1s he will likely not be the best player of his draft pool, and will fall back into the pack once he mixes with bigger elite athletes.
The big challenge for him is probably his best mate who is a bit more raw in terms of skill, but has the physical attributes to be something special.
