WB are supposedly interested in O'Brien. He looks worryingly like Grant in build, face and description. Hope he fills out a bit more than Grant has.Apologies for delay.
Pick 22 - Sydney - Tim O'Brien
SA - Glenelg - Tall Forward
Sydney are set for most positions, and noting they don't draft HBFers or Ruckmen (they trade them in) I decided to go for someone who will take time. With Gary Rohan on the list, they are ok with having gingers at the club which is good for Tim.
O'Brien is on the radar of most clubs as a late 1st round/early 2nd round pick, and his Drafty Combine results are doing his chances no end of good, with his 20m sprint and agility tests in the elite category (3rd overall for agility, 20m sprint sub 3 sec, top 10 overall for repeat sprints).
Kevin Sheehan says: “Tall, quick moving forward whose X-factor is his overhead marking. Averaged five marks and 2.2 goals per game in the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships and is a reliable set shot for goal. His six goals against Tasmania in Round One was a highlight.”
Dannnnnnnnnn up next for Brisbane
