As long as he doesn't surf in a suit I'm fine with it

At least he actually is from sydney.
Looking at Knightmare's final 2016 Draft I'm not surprised we pounced when Ben was still on the table..
38 North Melbourne - Ben Davis
Height, weight: 187cm, 84kg
Summary profile: Powerful marking forward with size, smarts and strong one-on-one ability. Younger brother of Sydney's Abe.
Geez 38, wonder how he made it all the way to our last live pick.
You're not trying to say he's a bargain because a blogger rated him?
Blogger employed by foxsports as an "expert blogger" to be fair.
Every year these online mock drafts end up looking the same as each other, and not necessarily the same as the order from the clubs. Seems to be a lot of groupthink that occurs.
Cross out employed too.
99% chance they're giving him "exposure" in return for free content
Point stands though
Knightmare has a good track record. I'll leave it at that.
Not good enough for 1 of the 18 clubs to want to hire him though.
Doesn't discredit him. There's only so many jobs available to ex players.
If you want your point to hold you'll need to not leave it at that
I think he was doing some work with a club previously.
ESPN picked him up, so i'm assuming he knows something. Anyway
So at least if we lose Gov we have another one ready to go!
I think a lot of these Phantom Drafts a great, the trick is you have to understand that they are an amateur draft watchers opinion on the draft and as you say there is a significant amount of group think, especially for those who don't watch that much junior footy. Quite simply, if you use them as a guide, they're a great resource, similar to watching these kids highlights, but if you take them as gospel, be prepared to be disapointed.
Most of them only watch the next crop of players, this year they will be watching the kids who will be drafted this year, compared to the recruiters who have been watching these kids since under 12s.
This is undoubted true and frankly most amateurs don't even know what to look for
Geez, he looks bigger than 187 cm and 84 kg. Maybe those stats are obsolete.
I'd love to watch a game with a recruiter and have it explained what they are looking at/for.
I understand a lot of SA recruiters have a similar footballing lineage, and think in similar ways??
Coach Don Pyke provides an update on the Club’s 2016 draft crop:
Pick No.75 – Ben Davis, forward
SANFL games: 0
“Benny had a foot problem which required surgery, so unfortunately we haven’t seen too much of him yet.
“He’s back running and doing some training now, so we’re really hopeful of getting him back in Round 16 – 17.
“Talking to him, I know he’s champing at the bit to get out there and see what he can do in the last half of the year.
“He’s put on a bit of size since he’s been injured and in the gym, so he’s a bigger version than he was when he arrived.”
Can't wait for this one...got a good feeling about Davis after seeing his highlights.
He was a decent size already, hope he can get on the park
Me too, size, speed and agility. Even with the known foot issue too good to pass over with a late pick considering the risk/reward is weighted in our favour given his talent.
I know it's even more of a longshot that he ever plays at all, but do you reckon he has midfield potential? Has all the attributes we lack outside of Greenwood.
