This is it in a nutshell, but even if Heeney can get his body right, I don't think it's the best comparison.It's Petracca comfortably
But I will be honest, if Heeney starts putting games together like their final this year and stays injury free he will close the gap quickly and significantly
Heeney has the potential to truly rip games apart a be a top 10 AFL player

Heeney's Elimination Final gave a glimpse into the kind of player he can become. A dominant one-on-one forward who is near impossible to match-up on, with the ability to push up the ground and have an occasional shorts bursts through the midfield. Petracca is sort of the reverse. Virtually impossible to match-up on and shut down in the midfield, but he also has an exceptional ability to push forward and kick goals.
Using Martin as a yardstick, Heeney is like Dusty but spends more time forward, and Petracca is like Dusty but spends more time in the midfield.
