Gray can't tackle like Butters nor can he take a high mark like Butters.

And yet, Butters can do everything Gray does.

It's basically frightening how good he is.
It wasn't quite a 'getting Robbie Gray at pick 55' steal, but getting Butters at pick 12 was still a hell of a steal. Imagine if clubs could do the 2018 draft again. He'd go top 5, perhaps top 3.

Haven't felt this excited about a player since Wingard circa 2013-2014, except Zak matches his exceptional natural talent with a relentless work ethic. Ken's described it perfectly - Butters could be anything he wants to be. A multi-premiership player would be my preference.

Kid's a freak...

I doubt every week is going to be like this for Zak in terms of possession numbers, but his usage is unreal for a 3rd year player.

I have said it consistently that he was our most important player last year, and I wont be surprised to see that trend continue in 2021.

Reads the play as good as anyone in the competition.

He just hits every stoppage contest with so much speed and intensity.
Zak is the exact type of player that the top Victorian clubs try to lure away from lowly “interstate” teams with the promise of a playing in front of big loud crowds and possible premiership success... imagine if we were one of those shitty “interstate” teams!

I think the King brothers would still go before him because talented KPFs are difficult to find. Walsh maybe. So I'd put Zak at pick 3 or 4 if the draft was done again.
I was wondering how the King brothers compared to each other stats wise so figured I'd dig up their footywire comparisons (https://www.footywire.com/afl/footy...2=16&type=A&pid1=6593&pid2=6592&fid1=C&fid2=C)

My first reaction:
"Holy sh*t, they're the same age and height! What are the odds?!"

I am not a clever man.
