    Didn't test at the combine due to Achilles but from watching him would have been one of the quickest mids in the draft.

    A lot of talk about his pace and kicking (rightfully so) but one thing I noticed (albeit only from highlight videos) was that he is a very ferocious tackler and has a very good technique with pinning the arm. Really good set of traits to have.

    Nice interview. He seems like a quality person. I especially loved his "top of the moon" quick change to "top of the world" and did he accidentally say the eff word? If so, I shall add him to my list of favourite players immediately. He wants to be "as coachable as possible". Wow, if only every player had that attitude.

    Imagine if he had red hair... :p

    Was hoping we would go in a slightly different direction but can't begrudge the club for taking Smith at all, could have made a strong case for him going top 5. Nice slider to get knowing we will get West fairly cheap as well. Smith will be a good fit for our club with the way he goes about his footy. Can see him having an impact in season 1. Similar to Dow of last season.

    Really like this selection. Seems to be a maniac attacking man and ball, and has some nice wheels in traffic with ball in hand too.

    I reckon this year we were missing a bit of C on the deck. Stoked to have this kid, it just looks right

    Grasping at straws a bit here aren't we? Would he be in the bottom 5 in the club? Who's spot does he take next year?

    Your statement was patently incorrect and when it is explained why, I'm grasping at straws?
    You were wrong, that's it. Take your issues somewhere else, you get no more replies from me.

    Yep, it’s the only real good comparison I’ve seen to him so far.

    Maybe not quite as strong overhead as Ward but he’s at least a yard or 2 quicker. Otherwise, they are similar enough and is the type that can make an impact pretty quickly.

    Seems like such a likeable and genuine bloke from all his interviews. Speaks so well for a 17 year old.

    You can tell hes genuinely happy to be here, I feel like hes literally going to fall in love with Bont haha

    Love his flow.

    Could pass for a hockey player.

    Hope the achilles issue isnt serious.

    Noticed that too, he tackled one then the ball spills out and instantly tackled the other.

    Mate of mine was/is his school teacher. Says he's a good egg.

    Of course I will blame him if he turns out to be a dud.

    Agreed. His tackling made me stiff in the trousers.

    He seems to not only want to stop blokes, but hurt them.

    I like that.

    That's what I like about him. You never admit it, but when I tackle someone it is always with the intent to hurt them, cause damage or make them crap their pants next time they see you coming. Everyone should be tackling with some kind of intent, hardness, within the rules. That's why I hate AFL sometimes, fans, player, admins and commentators always brag about how "tough" it is. But most players tackling techniques are cringe, and half the time it looks like they are trying to hug each other. Smith has a good technique and real intent in his tackles.
