Yeah agree. Nothing against the kid personally, he seems an appropriate selection at the pick. But list balance wise why do we need another 190cm defender?Not sure what role he is going to play.... we have a truck load of defenders this size. He is neither a small or a tall defender... and with MOC and Stewart and Henry and Kolo ... I cant quite see it ...but look forward to seeing him play.
The cupboard is pretty bare beyond the guys who are on the field, and Stewart, Blicavs, Henderson and Tuohy will all be 30 or older at the start of next season.Yeah agree.

If i recall and BF was crashing at this point, 51 became 47 with the use of later picks for points that other clubs used to match bids on their Academy players.pick 47? I thought we had pick 51. Can we have a thread explaining how all these pick changes are going down as the afl website is complete rubbish. what did we give up to get to pick 47?
Blitz and hendo are taller at the KP end and I advocate getting a KPD but we're deep enough for sub 195cm defenders I feel.The cupboard is pretty bare beyond the guys who are on the field, and Stewart, Blicavs, Henderson and Tuohy will all be 30 or older at the start of next season.
That would change the scope of the pick..... but listening to Troy S... they knew what he was like , having him at the club..so very much a package ..the right personality etc.. very good kick and has been playing flank wing yet his frame to me resonates more a inside player than an out side player..With his vision and endurance id be hoping we develop him into a tall midfielder honestly.
My thoughst exactly...Stevens trained with the club so they’d have a good idea of him as a player and person. Could be a midfielder or defender looking forward to seeing him play. We do need some more running defenders coming through. Perhaps Steven or Holmes could play that role with Clark.
From a U16 champs write-up on the Vic Metro v Vic Country game:
So it sounds like he's versatile, could end up being a tall mid.
