Why is he a NGA prospect?
Don't know his heritage.

I see you highlighted Jeremy Sharp........any comparison to Freos Hill Jnr?

That is the type we need on the wing IMO in 2020.
Sharp has some Jasper Pittard without the decision making issues. He'll inject a lot on the outside - whether off half-back or on a wing. No only brings the speed and takes on the game but also a damaging ball user. Playing WAFL League football. Finding the footy fine. Plenty of positive signs. Should go first round, probably 10-20 to guess at this stage.

Interesting; wasn’t Pittard the one all the recruiters extolled for his decision making at draft camp? “Should be going for a coaching job” etc.? And now the pot on him is decision making... LOL.

Pittard when pressured with ball in hand is well known for skill errors.

That doesn't mean he isn't a future coaching candidate or a great football mind.

Two entirely different things.

NAB League Grand Final preview. The clear two standout teams. There could be 20 future AFL footballers out there in that game.

I wasn’t doubting your assessment, just bemused by the way perception of him has changed.

I don’t remember that assessment myself because 10 years is getting a bit too far back, but as an aside that’s one element of recruiting that hasn’t improved. The ability to identify players that cope well under pressure remains possibly the biggest factor in all sports yet the susceptible types always slip through because they have talent. Only an observation, but I’d be looking at spy recruiters as consultants to help in this area.

We don’t seem to get much information from the club re our Academy kids.
Maybe the Club doesn’t want too much exposure (protecting them), to avoid the social media quagmire.
Let them grow up & play Footy (as kids) without the public spotlight & pressure that follows?
I’m visiting Melbourne this weekend (Caroline Springs), so may wander down to Werribee for a look see.

“The baby-faced teenager rocketed into first-round contention after impressing prospective clubs with his demeanour and game-specific knowledge in the draft camp interviews.

Sydney Swans coach Paul Roos joked about offering McMillan-Pittard an assistant coaching role, but the Vic Country representative said he would refrain from offering new coach Mark Williams any on-field advice - at least for the time being.

"I think we'll leave it at the playing career at the moment. I don't know. It looks pretty stressful being a coach," he said.”

#21 Reef McInnes (Oakleigh Chargers)

The Collingwood NGA prospect looks to be another great find for the Magpies, and he had some sort of start to the game. McInnes was strong from the get-go, winning the very first clearance and working hard to impact a number of contests around the ground – he was involved in just about everything. His clean hands, strength in the contest, and tackling made him the dominant inside midfielder, but his spread and props in traffic bode well for a well-balanced game. McInnes was a little quieter as the game wore on, but racked up 24 disposals, nine tackles, six clearances, and four inside 50s.

Adds a bit of unnecessary pressure for the lads I think. Plus there's always the chance the club doesn't take them. Imagine if the club had talked up Bailey Wraith pre-draft last year?

Wraith couldn't get a touch in the TAC Cup last year. He was never a realistic chance.

No point as a club talking up your academy prospects until after they're drafted as there is no benefit to driving a prospect's value up or the hype-train.
