this choice suprised me.

not because I know minimal information about the kid but the fact that he is a ruck man...

Planning further ahead...?

Petrie succession plan?

I know some aren't happy with this pick but I reckon he has some x factor about him.
Watching a few Foxtel cup games last year he stood out, has raw talent but I'm rapt he's a roo.

Welcome aboard young fella!

Surprised, we will give him a go though. Still a very raw talent, but he is going to have spend alot of time in the weights room if he wants to play as a tall forward in the AFL.

Got to a 3-4 bees games this year. BB certainly impressed me. His influence on the games I saw was up there with Maj's and Currie's. He has got good top speed for a big bloke, judges the ball well in the air and is shows great intent and attack on the footy. I'm stoked for the bloke and for us.

Our recruiters said on sen that he was recruited as a back up if Goldy / Currie went down as a ready replacement but also mindful he had the potential to rest up forward and do well

For starters, I don't like picking tall forwards late in the draft full stop. As for Brown, I've always thought he doesn't move like a natural forward.
