    I like the highlights. Welcome Will Hamill. Rangy left footer that likes to run and carry and hits targets, doesn't mind a goal either.

    He may be skinny now, but has a good frame to build muscle on in an AFL environment.

    Reminds me of Milera.

    Looks likely. But still seems a risky pick.

    Give him two years in the SANFL, like we did with Doedee, and he'll be alright I think

    Ran 2.91 seconds in the 20m sprint, top 3 at the combine I think

    Edit: Late birthday too, which helps

    Welcome, Will!

    Obviously not the perfect player but geez some of the phrases AFL Draft Central uses to describe him are thirsty.

    “Hamill is silky by hand and his trusty left boot can cut teams apart. His kicking especially with short passes are usually penetrating and find the target more often than not, he favours the short option a lot of the time which would help his efficiency numbers. By hand he is incredibly clean and it is very rare that he will miss a target by hand, and very rarely fumbles the ball. His strong hands are also valuable in marking contests where he is also a good judge overhead and willing to go back with the flight. He has taken many courageous marks above his head including some playing for Vic Country.“

    I hope we don't regret not taking Luke Valente with this pick

    Hamill and McPherson across half back in the SANFL next year. Could be a sight to see.

    He couldn't possibly kick 3 against us in a granny could he? Hamish seems to like blokes who have scope which from what I've heard/read Valente doesn't have as much as Hamill.

    A lot of them still haven't been taken which is strange, Lukosious and Rankine were also going top 3, Rozee should have been around pick 8 mark but Port Power pick him early at 5...….

    our development system has produced good players from late draft selections and rookie picks, so why not look for players with scope for improvement

    Hope you are right. Not saying for a second that I know more than the recruiters, solely basing my opinion on the 2 minute videos and brief bios and that champion data had Valente at 10 and he is an SA lad.
