Based on his current trajectory on this board, he could be a top 20 player in the competition by round 1.
I've personally got him locked in for the flex spot on the AA bench, with a smokey for top 5 in the Brownlow.

I know this point has been made ad nauseum, but just look at the unit this kid is. =6th heaviest guy on our list as an 18 year old (although I'm not sure how up to date these measurements are) who'll be playing through our midfield. If there was ever a ready made prospect its this kid. Couple that with his aerobic ability and you've got an unstoppable force, even at AFL level.

If he grows more upwards and once he grows outwards could be a CHF down the track but let’s see how he goes. Good luck to him

I know Mitch Lewis was sitting at 105kg last pre-season. I dare say he's sitting around the high 90's at the moment.

Pretty impressive Sam Mitchell was talking about starting Weddle as a Mid since every player there started as a KP/Ruck.

I don't think we should put a ceiling on what our new players could achieve

Interesting we were trying to get that extra first pick from as early as Melbourne's pick(pick 14), wonder if Weddle was still our main target. Assume it was given Mitchell thought the best possible outcome was landing both Mackenzie and Weddle.
You betcha, We were worried about Melbourne picking him

Another few centimetres and a few bulking up kilos he could be playing-at 195 and 95 kilos ! Monster mid .

He is already what 92kg? If he grows a few CM he won't need to bulk to add those few kg. Kids already a monster
