Welcome to Essendon, Dylan Clarke!
Thanks to don patch sword for this:
Team: Eastern Ranges
TAC Games: 8
AVG Disposals: 29.5
Player Traits: Patrick Cripps, David Mundy
Bio: Clarke is a contested ball magnet, he works hard all around the ground and his stoppage work is umangst the best in this draft. Has grown during the year as well so doubt he is 187cm anymore he looks closer to 190cm.
Clarke is a smart player he works hard but he also works to smart spots on the ground he just knows where the footy will be both in the contest and in general play. He doesn't over exert himself he tends to stay in the middle of the ground.
His hands in close are exceptional and can be hard to stop with his big body and his first few steps are quicker than you would think. He makes great decisions in close and you can count on his possession putting teammates in a better spot.
Kicking is his main worry but has gotten better as the year has gone on. Id say his technique in general is fine he just needs to keep working at it. I really like Clarke and i think he would be a bargain late in the 2nd round.
