    Fatigue can also be a factor in game day speed.

    You get quicker as you enter your athletic pace. It's why there's never an 18 year old in the Olympic 100m sprint final.

    Didn’t know a great deal about this kid but I’m liking everything I see/hear/read about him. Has a great attitude and work ethic from there anything is possible I guess.

    Yes, but the video on twitter is working.

    Second go at giving an opinion without someone jumping down my throat.

    I really really like this pick. Reminds me of Puopolo a few years back. I actually think Cavarra has a few more tricks than Poppy came in with. This is the sort of pickup I much prefer to a Duryea or Lloyd. Wish we'd had another bite at the untried VFL/state leaguer.

    I suspect Lloyd was more about age/experience than just game nous etc. Goes a long way to filling a gap in our age profile in the 26-30 range.

    is Dane Zorko a good comparison?

    His running style definitely reminds me of Zorko, good pick up. Hopefully rest of his game is as good.

    I just can't escape the feeling that he'll end up a waste of a list spot. Obviously hope I'm wrong.

    If anything he's shown he is durable. That alone puts him ahead of a few at least for 2019.

    Third round picks are a real roll of the dice and Cavarra was a great fit for the list.
    Well worth taking a chance could turn out to be a bargain pick or bust time will tell
