I would like to see his class off hb. Something we lack.
I think that's why we've pushed Thomas back there, however with Perez still out for a number of weeks and Hayden pushed more into an on-ball role he certainly would present an option. There's competition there for him however with Atley and Young fitting a similar mould. Would love him to play but might have to bide his time for the moment I'm thinking.

"probably one of if the best kicks on the list...far more advanced than we expected" - Gavin Brown.

That's a huge vote of confidence for the kid. While I don't think he will play AFL footy this year it's going to be interesting tracking his development.
You didn't already know this? Amazing.

Knew he was a quality ball user, but didn't think he'd be tracking as well as what he is (in a development sense) considering he is a rookie.

He's "silk"

Whether he ends up with the size& ball winning ability to play AFL, remains to be seen.

I suspect he'll take a while.
