I think with this year under his belt JBytel will be taken pretty seriously next season.
He's looking like a really promising player.

The medical sub is so irritating as a stats lover. Aside from his two games as the sub, he's averaging seven clearances and five tackles a game. He hopefully finds more footy as he grows in confidence and gets more experienced. Easy to forget he's only played nine games. As others have mentioned, he is just so clean with the ball. He's also creative with his movement and angles. Moves out of packs and opens up the game with smart kicks and handballs. It's not too often you find inside mids with such good ball use.

David King and Daniel Hoyne lift the lid on the season and do a deep dive into the rounds biggest issues



The best and brightest mid-season draft prospects will have one of their final chances to impress AFL recruiters this weekend in an exhibition match showcasing Victoria’s best young talent.
The Colgate Young Guns game will feature the state’s best under-23 players that are eligible for the mid-season draft in a Metro v Country clash.
Of the 52 players selected in the initial squads for the match, 48 hail from NAB League teams while four are from VFL clubs.
NAB AFL Academy member Ned Moyle has been named as part of the Vic Metro squad and has emerged as a strong mid-season draft prospect.
A 205cm ruckman, Moyle caught the eye of recruiters with a competitive performance in last month’s Academy game against Geelong’s VFL team.

Another ruckman who has similarly attracted mid-season draft interest is 202cm Calder Cannons big man Liam Podhajski, who joins Moyle in the Vic Metro squad.
Eastern Ranges forward Corey Preston, who trained with the Western Bulldogs in search of a Supplementary Selection Period (SSP) list spot during pre-season, will also line up for Vic Metro.
Western Bulldogs Academy members Ewan Macpherson and Cody Raak are on the same team.

The Vic Country squad features a pair of prospects who are brothers of current AFL players.
Charlie Ham — the brother of Essendon’s Brayden Ham — has made a strong start to the season for the Geelong Falcons after being overlooked in last year’s drafts.
Will Papley — the brother of Sydney’s Tom Papley — is a lively forward for Gippsland Power, where his brother also came through the ranks.
Dandenong Stingrays midfielder Will Bravo, who missed out on an SSP spot at Hawthorn over summer, is also part of the Vic Country squad.
The match will be played at Werribee Oval on Saturday from 2.40pm.
The AFL’s mid-season draft will be held on June 2.

Just got to keep playing him.
Get as many games into him as quickly as possible. Obviously still looking after his back though.

People forget Bytel and King had a full year out their first year in the System. Max had 5 games before doing his ankle,

Jack had the year then hardly any real footy in 2020.
Just really the second season for King and the first for Bytel. A tonne of upside for both.
They also both missed significant amounts of footy in their draft year too, so they're both essentially 2 years behind in terms of development
