Havent looked into a second of the draft this year but on the highlights ive seen since we drafted him he looks like a very Jason Taylor pick. ie: A footballer not an athlete, good fundamentals.

You'd assume the plan is to play him as a forward? (or perhaps a backup plan incase Petty leaves)
How ******* good has it been not needing to worry about the draft!

I'd be guessing, but I'd agree with you in thinking he would be groomed forward. Especially if Tomlinson can get back fit and healthy over next few years. He looks very Tom Lynch like to me.

Definite lack of inside mids drafted... and no ruck depth. Will Minson anyone?

I do like on fox footy when a player is selected they have those ticks then there's always one question mark like 'running capacity' it's not needed.
Let's face it, running is a very overrated skill for AFL players. If it wasn't for the bias of recruiters I'd say there would be at keast half a dozen 1-legged superstars hopping around at AFL level

Exactly just finding a flaw for the sake of it. Who cares they get time to improve. Running capacity is probably one of the easiest 'flaw' to rectify

I’ve been coached (a long time ago) by some very experienced coaches that held a pet hate of kicking on your opposite foot.

Used to sh*t me because one of my only strengths was a good left foot!
