Curious to whether we see him as a ruck? Especially given he is 196. Maybe we think we can play him as a KPP and then he pitches in every now and then..
This one I’ve got no idea about
Well 196 is the perfect height for a key forward... and we know he is already a better ruck man than Grigg. Many are all hoping Callum Moore can play our second forward/ruck relief... so it sounds to me like you might be on to something.

I like this pick. Could be anything.

Bit like Balta, second ruck and possibly move him around and see how he fits and grows.

With Balta, Miller and CCJ we now have a full ruck contingent. Balta and Miller going forward into the future could even represent our ruck set-up.

Great value pick and we may not need another ruck selection for at least 6 years or so!!!

Apparently he’s now 200cm

If he's 200cm then we have robbed the bank again. How many ruckmen are as eager to win the ball at ground level and take off with the ball as this guy? I love Nank because of the impact he makes around the stoppages with his determination to tackle, block and get the ball into his hands. If he can nullify the opposition ruck first then that's a bonus. This guy looks like he can tap ruck too plus act as another genuine midfielder when the ball is in dispute. His kicking is also amazing.

Could we have another Cox on our hands? I'm surprized he went so late? Am I missing something?

Thats exactly whats happened - he was 196cm, is now 200cm
Would be unreal if he could be an AFL natural sized ruckman but the AFL combine was about a month ago, not sure if he's going to grow that much in a month. (Could easily grow another couple of cm with age)

We've already got a ruck man and drafted another. Good size for a forward or even a full back, and pinch hit in the ruck. How many 200cm forwards are any good. Paul Salmon...

Tom Lynch goes alright, Daniher looks a star, Charlie Dixon is getting better and better at Port, I like Patton at GWS and Peter Wright looks very very good not to mention Hipwood.
