Matt Allison 192cm Forward

A lot of Jack Gunston about Allison. Matt will team up with Thilthorpe and attempt to be the Roughy/Buddy of 2020.

I am fairly certain that Melbourne won't be using this pick at the draft based on their list currently and the 38 main list change.

They currently have 35 on their list and I doubt any of them are being cut which means they can only use the first three picks of their draft.

eDPS are we doing this realistically or just using the picks?

If realistically I pass. Other option is I am willing to trade #47 for a future 4th rounder

Pick #48: Geelong enters the draft for the first time. They select Tom Highmore. Reason for selection is that they maybe need another defender to start developing. He is a bit older than the others so might be able to have an influence sooner, which would help Geelong whilst they are in their window.

Port select - Oliver Davis - Tasmania - Inside mid

Boak and Rockliff don’t have long left so he’ll add some depth in the midfield. Contested ball/clearances are key to the game style port play and they are davis’ speciality. A No frills
Midfielder who will turn up and play his heart out every week. Don’t be surprised if he’s one of the value picks of the draft. Often unathletic inside mids slip down the order but go on to have great afl careers - lachie neale for one.

Sorry should’ve also added mids on the smaller side aswell. For someone at his height it’s not overally athletic that makes him jump off the page (say elite speed) and wouldn’t stop him from slipping down the draft order. Clubs would’ve been questioning where neale ended up if he didn’t make a spot in the midfield.
