I see him and rate him as a 4-5 perhaps 6 year growth prospect. I do rate him and watched him live. Growing pains and niggles have bothered him but his build is my issue.
He is one i see that, clubs who do rate him, will posibly wait till he is afl ready before trading for him in a few years time.
I can honestly say that i cannot see him playing at AFL level for at least 2 years so he can build his body. Someone, however, aside from my thoughts, will try to lock him away with a ND pick and i do see him being picked as there is definite interest (especially with a combine invite) but not someone 'I' would draft.
He is someone i would keep an eye on during his first few years of a full time professional environment and monitor his progress ie. Game improvement, body growth, 1 on 1 improvement, attacking growth and tackling growth and if all goes well and I then wanted him, try to poach him.
Hope that clears it up.
I do but I think it presupposes a lot of things a represents quite a few risks if you are a club that thinks he could be something in 5 years. I guess my point is late in the draft when you have to gamble on players with a lot of holes what is the point in gambling on yet another vanilla mid or medium defender with a speed and an ordinary kick. I don't understand the logic. This kid is 204 as I said with good speed and very clean below his knees for someone his size. My point is if you are going to gamble gamble on something with significant upside either very late or rookie. Why do you differ?
