POSITION: Small Forward/Midfielder



SNAPSHOT: “One of the quickest players in the draft pool, Clarke is hard to catch once he gets going, and his surge style of play and nous around goal make him a desirable player for the modern game.”



Clubs like Richmond and Melbourne have had recent success in the AFL with their surge tactics and once they form in full motion, they are hard to stop. Not many players in this draft pool showcase the surge style like Judson Clarke, who knows one way - and that is to attack at all costs. Clarke spent most of his time playing NAB League with Dandenong Stingrays and AGSV football with school Yarra Valley Grammar, excelling in both competitions as a dangerous forward who could also roll through the midfield. Clarke shows some comparisons to Carlton’s Zac Fisher as an elusive left-footer and looks set to be taken in a similar draft range to Fisher, who went at pick 27 in 2016.



STRENGTHS:

+ Speed
+ Agility
+ Goal sense
+ Clean hands
+ Run and carry
+ Smarts



IMPROVEMENTS:

- Contested Game
- Tackling

Nice little highlights video. Quick, elusive and a neat left shoe. Most importantly can find the footy. Averaging 18 touches is good for a small forward. Means even if he’s not kicking goals can still have an impact. Looks a lot better than George and Aarts
The boil on my arse is better than Aarts

Never heard of him pre draft but this one excites me the most.

No secret I love my pace and this guy has it to burn.

Can play mid
And left footer...

Did I hear some poster wanting more left footers in the side?
Never heard of him? Where the hell are you getting your trade info from?
