One thing definitely to his advantage is his width through the shoulders. He's a massive unit, not just tall. When he is fully grown into his frame, he'll be almost impossible to push off the line of the ball for stoppages.

I’d really only played Draper lip service until Saturday.

Wow, what a game tho, in the shittest conditions imaginable for a big fella, he played a brilliant ruck’s game. His craft was excellent tapping the ball to adv & reading of ball flight top notch too.

Commanding performance & bodes well for next year to support belcho.

Would have no problem Sam coming in for a game or two next year. His upward trajectory has been brilliant. The thing holding him in the best stead is his competitiveness.

It's my firm belief that this kid is a phenomenal talent.

I'd go as far as to say, on talent alone, I'd have him within our top 5.

In no particular order;

Joe Daniher, Orazio Fantasia, Aaron Francis, Jake Stringer - and Draper.
You know I respect you and your entitled to your opinion.

But nah.

You may be mistaking his aggression for talent there Jade.
He obviously has tricks but most talented may be a stretch old mate
