Is it because he’s ‘only a hbf’ that you don’t rate or is it weaknesses in his performance at that role that bothers you?My 2c on Ash.
I don't rate him super high. I'd have him late 1st Rd at best in last years draft. Reckon Jordan Clark as a similar type has him covered. I think he's pretty much a running h/b only. I envision him as being pretty close to Zac Jones with a bit more composure and delivery(not that hard).
But in saying that, i wouldn't be overly disappointed with him at 9 if we keep that on the night in this draft. We could do with some pace, we could do with some transition, we could do with some quicker entry.
I would take a few others though. I'm happy with our h/b talent and coverage not to jump at another one with a Top 10 pick.
