He is the one that really could play very early, has all the attributes of a senior player already, as I said it was a good draft for us
What's Trey's tank like? He's built like a kid who will have to do a bit of work on his tank in order to be AFL relevant.

~TheScout~ thoughts:

How he got to Collingwood defies everything I understand about talent.
The club that I work for had him inside the top 20 and we desperately tried to get back into the draft to access him.

I saw him rack up 40+ v SA and he is every bit a top-end talent.
The only query is size (he's just shy of 180).

Absolute steal. Rapt that he's a pie.

He's alright. Not a speedster, probably about average I'd say. It's not a deficiency on the way he plays though. He's about a 3.09 20m sprint, and that can come down to close to three-flat with some work (a lot of players can do it over time, Noah Anderson went from 3.13 to 3.03 this year with coaching). But it's not a priority.

What fans will love is his ball use. Elite ball user and not one-sided dominant at that. Can use either foot.
That's the real key that makes a player look like they have more time and space (and look quicker) - it's much easier to make quick, correct decisions with your movement and with ball in hand when there are no limitations on where you can go with your disposal.

The Scouts next post is very interesting. Saying that the Rantall and Bianco situation had a bit of Thomas and pendlebury feel about it. Pies rated Pendles before Thomas but knew he’d be gone. Same with Rantall and Bianco.
