There’s three in the draft I can think of, off the top of my head.Attacking, we have marley who is a very good lock down defender. Team usually have 1 top of the line small forward like Betts but to be truly excellent, you need to have the best counter attacking small defender. We need a saad or johanessian type player. It's the player who can link from halfback to mid and forward, the quarterback player is now the MVP. Your dustin martin, de goey, josh kelly type are the ones we see and hear but the real match winners are the ones who run out of defense and deliver balls into the hands of those superstars.
Top 5 pick Hayden Young. ~187cm. The best kick in the draft, very good decision maker. Can run and carry, and then kick 50. High possession player.
Top 10 pick Lachlan Ash. ~186cm. The fastest run and carry player. Breaks lines with his pace. Hasn’t got penetration on his kick that Young has.
Top 20-25 pick Trent Bianco. ~178cm. More your link up type. Good skills and kicks on both sides of his body. Is fast, but doesn’t have the line breaking speed of Ash.
