Our VFL team is going to be exciting this year. A clutch of 22-25 year olds busting a nut to get into a stacked side. Heaps of pace and flair too.

Draper is 200cm (iirc)

Kok is 193cm. Athlete or not, an inch taller let alone a more natural ruck is will always destroy a speculative third stringer

No Joks big enough eh?
So does it just swing in the beeze or does he chuck it over his shoulder?

Anyone else think he might be a surprise selection for round 1.

Very talated kid, skillful, quick competitive and humble. impressed many during his first few weeks. Hard to beat one on one.

If he can sort out his ground ball work, he could be a very significant find...

Would like him to play on the wing and use his speed & marking abilities.

I think he's coming from that far back. He'd have to dominate training to the point where he looked like a top 10/15 player.

He's also likely competing with players like Zaharakis for a spot on the wing, and Zaharakis is a fairly proven AFL level player.

It's possible he'll get games through injury, but he's probably a 1 - 2 year project before we see him a chance at locking down a best-22 spot.

I don’t think he’ll play round one...,but if anyone is going to come from nowhere and play much earlier than expected the 6’4 running machine who can play multiple positions is as good a chance as any.

The number of things he needs to develop is less than most - adapting his skill to AFL level pressure and getting the system is about it really. Do that and you find a spot for him. Of course, easier said than done.
