Definitely not the highest player left on my board but at some stage this draft I had to take a developing KPD prospect like I think the Giants should, and long term, I think Sam can develop into something that'll compete well with the new age 200cm+ athletic beast forwards like the Kings. Only slightly built and not exposed much at NAB League, or any representative level, Sam boasts some good speed, aerial prowess and skills for a player of his height, performing well in the Ruck and in defence at such a light weight and slim build is something I like in a player, it signifies to me that he's got game sense rather than just size.
Again, a very long term project, but a necessary one positionally, and one that's shown some promise early on
