I hope you meant to say "agility" there!It’s a myth that speed is holding West back, he’s plenty quick enough to carve out an AFL career - his burst on the first few steps are easily above average, maybe over a distance he struggles but that’s not overly relevant to the type of player he is.
Not only that but his ability is absolutely top of the line elite, similar to Lachie Hunter. This is wayyyy more important in congested modern footy than outright speed over a long distance. Elite vertical leap - overall his athletic package is fine, and stronger than most too.
Not suggesting he’s a better player but athletically he’d monster a number of our best 22 players
