Knightmare write up: 46. Ben Crocker (VIC – FWD/MID)
Height: 185cm, Weight: 81kg, DOB: 19/02/1997
Recruited from: Oakleigh Chargers
Reminds me of: Ricky Petterd Brief bio: Crocker is a super strong, one grab marking medium forward who has proven a real threat in the forward half for Oakleigh this year. He is a strong mark in the air, showing real leaping ability and ability to take it at the highest point. And on the lead he also is a threat. Crocker has the ability to push up into the midfield and play off a back flank but his impact overall has been impressive up the field. Crocker has a classy feel to him and at times shows he can lower his eyes and find some nice targets inside the forward 50m but by foot he can lack consistency and is only an average kick overall, though he does have an opposite side. Athletically Crocker’s strong point is his leaping ability, with his agility in game also something he can use with some occasional sidesteps, with his pace only average.
