Don't mind this one. He's tiny sure, but if he had been born a day later he would have been in next years draft pool so effectively picking him a year early in the 2nd round of the rookie means with a bit of luck (and a lot of gym work) we may end up with a bargain
The skinny, inside midfielder is one of the draft's surprise packets, given how far he has come in 2013. After completing the pre-season with the Murray Bushrangers, he started the season in the Ovens and Murray League before showing rapid improvement in nine TAC Cup games. His light frame belies his utter fearlessness and aggression at the ball. Also boasts neat skills and can play as a small forward or defender. He qualified for the draft by one day – he will turn 18 on New Year's Eve.
We probably won't be seeing him in the Blue and White for a while, but as others have said this is a good value pick. If he was born a day later then he could have cost us a second round pick in the actual draft.
He sounds like a good character and if he is tackling like he is as a stick figure, then he must have a decent ticker.
I think with his age and the development left in him he could be a multi positional player. It's going to be at least 3 years before he will be even close to considered for senior footy, so lets just see how this speculative pick goes.
