Had a lot of injuries this year so that's a worry. I'd say a 20 year old ruck is still a baby in development terms so you'd assume there are plenty of weaknesses. Building a tank and strength will be two priorities.
From AFL draft central
http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-12-02/sweet-relief-for-new-bulldog-ruck-after-twoyear-wait"My pressure around the contest is good, my game knowledge is strong, as well as my skills for a big man.
"I love the physicality aspect of the game, I love getting inside opponents' heads, so I'll bring a bit of aggression in the middle.
"I give myself every chance to play round one, and there's no reason why I shouldn't think I can't."...
North Adelaide coach and former Power and Docker midfielder Josh Carr can attest to his former protégé's change in attitude and he also believes Sweet will meet Beveridge's philosophy on ruckman.
"Over the past 12 months Jordon has really matured a lot and developed his game, so I reckon he's ready to have a go at (AFL level)," Carr told AFL.com.au.
"He's a really good runner, and I don't think he knew how good his tank was and it really surprised himself, so he's taken that with his love of throwing his weight around.
"He tackles, chases and puts on shepherds, which is what you want a ruckman to do.
Very much so, with a little more footy polish. Was talking to a mate in SA who played for the Red Legs and he said his finals campaign with North Adelaide was very influential and plays like a big man.... He said in the right program with another pre-season or two he could be a real find. Lets hopeSounds like we have another Wilbur!
Ben Hudson looked rough as guts when he was 23, 24 (hence "Our Mastermind" wouldn't draft him) but was aggressive and really really good at all the small things rucks don't get stats for (blocks, pushes, clearing space for mids in the contest, etc).Looks as rough as guts from those videos, but has a go.
Ben was also a renowned "yapper" on field, I think I remember Bob sayingBen Hudson looked rough as guts when he was 23, 24 (hence "Our Mastermind" wouldn't draft him) but was aggressive and really really good at all the small things rucks don't get stats for (blocks, pushes, clearing space for mids in the contest, etc).
Fingers crossed Sweet follows the same development path.
