DRAFT ANALYSIS: "A damaging small forward at his best, Williams has all the hallmarks of being a serious player at the elite level if he can build his consistency and up his defensive pressure."

A SPECIAL talent, Williams is a player who burst onto the scene last year as a bottom-ager, lightning up the finals series and finishing the year with 26 goals from 16 games. Due to a combination of injury and form this year, Williams has not been able to rekindle his top form, but a full pre-season at an AFL club and fully recovering from the back stress fractures that ended his year prematurely should rectify that. A first round prospect on talent, he is not expected to fall too far outside the top 10, and will be great value if taken in the second round. He has a high level ceiling that could see him become a really damaging player in the air or on the lead inside 50, with his consistency, versatility and defensive pressure the key areas for Williams to develop going forward.

I liked Sharp more looking at their footage, but he seems like a reasonable pick.

His recent injury history, and that awkward kicking style appear to be the major concerns. Love that we've picked a few guys that are good overhead though, always helps to have players that can mark in the modern game. Would love to get a real gauge on his speed, our number one need is speed so I hope he is a quick player.

Welcome Dylan, hopefully you're pushing for AFL games in no time.
