With pick number 2 the Fremantle Dockers select...

Andrew Brayshaw!


DOB: 8/11/1999
POSITION: Midfielder / Forward
HEIGHT: 184cm
WEIGHT: 82kg
DRAFTED FROM: Sandringham Dragons

Andrew Brayshaw is a well-rounded midfielder from Melbourne's South-East.

Brayshaw has consistently performed and impacted at every level, averaging 25 touches for Sandringham Dragons in the TAC Cup, dominating school footy for Haileybury College and stepping up to the U18 Championships off the back of a quad injury with ease - averaging 21 disposals in his two games for Vic Metro.

The brother of Melbourne Demon, Angus Brayshaw, Andrew is tough and able to win his own ball, but also possesses a nice balance to play on the outside.

A hard worker, neat user of the ball and a superb decision maker, Brayshaw is rated elite for kicking efficiency and score involvements at TAC level, while also averaging nearly seven tackles a game.

A smart player with high footy IQ, Brayshaw is a reliable ball winner, can push forward to hit the scoreboard and also impact across half back.

Brayshaw had an impressive TAC Cup finals campaign and a super draft combine, where he showcased a rare mix of speed and elite endurance capped off an outstanding 2017 season.

Glad to get a semi local player. Should not have the go home factor of other players

Welcome.
Will be forever compared to LDU and Dow though, as we passed them to get this kid. Hope we pulled it off

Possibly the standout athlete in this draft (apart from the height, which is still reasonable) with exceptional endurance and good speed coupled with neat skills and strong leadership potential and as close to a WA player as we could have picked.

Also I suspect we picked him because he has the drive and determination that LDU lacks.

Fox Footy just interviewed him, he is 100% over the moon and buzzing to be in Perth with his extended family, and his family friends. You couldn't wipe the grin off his face! This will be a great pick IMO.
