Luko wont be a KPP.

Could still be a very good player. Taller version of our Tom Lynch.

Or a big midfielder.

Maybe, lots of talent. If we have a top 2 pick would you rather him or one of Rowell or Anderson?

I would not give up Carltons pick for Luko or Rankine.

We need a quality blue chip mid.

I don't see it with Lukosius. He just seems 100% outside.

People were comparing him to Nick Riewoldt but I'm yet to see Luko put his body on the line AT ALL.

I'm not keen on us spending first rounders to get him back at this stage.

Agree, Riewoldt gave everything he had to get to the next contest and gave everything he had to win every contest. He got better as he became more experienced and a bigger body but the effort remained the same. Luko doesn't put in a Riewoldt like effort.

It's funny that his name is Jack because he could be anything from Jack Watts to Jack Gunston.

Agree. I don't think you let Rowell slip through. I haven't seen as much of Anderson ... but he is rated in the same bracket right?

Very quick to jump on Lukosius. Gee whiz.
Young player who doesn’t have the size to play his position at AFL level doesn’t dominate and therefore no good?
Come on give him time.
I'm just not seeing the trajectory people were seeing before he was drafted ... That's all.

What position do you see him as playing? Key position? Again, don't see it.

People were saying he was the best they'd seen. Most talented junior out of SA in decades.

I'm saying they look wrong ... Which is no slight on Lukosius at all.

Centre half forward. Just needs to add size and he will be a gun.

Nick Riewoldt didn't debut until round 15 in his first year (in a Saints side that were just as bad, if not worse) and only played 6 games. Not saying Luko will be the next Riewoldt because he's one of the greatest CHFs to play the game, but a skinny, raw 18 year-old tall isn't going to set the world alight in his first 8 games.

Who do you see him being like in the modern game?

CHF is a power position, he looks more like a tall winger to me.

He has a similar.body shape to Westhoff.

Noticed it today.

You couldn't really expect Lukosius to do that much in his first year, at his size. i don't care how talented a player is, eighteen year olds of that size don't dominate right out of the gate. I don't think we can draw any realistic conclusion about how his career will progress from this point yet.
