    Melbourne Recruitment Manager Jason Taylor Interview & Draft Wrap Up
     

Recommended Posts

Best mate of Andy Brayshaw. Does the 100 x 100s with the Brayshaw brothers on Christmas day. 191cm tall mid with clean hands and good decision making. Some question about his tank, but that can be worked on.

Draft watchers, where's he likely to go?

Top 20 might drop a little but Won’t make it to our pick sadly. 

As you’ve brought up Brayshaw - rumours circling Freo like him at 2!!!!!

Purely based on that highlights video he reminds of me Clarry with his ability to make quick smart decisions that put team mates in to the clear. If that's true I can't see him slipping out of the top 20.

I want us to draft this bloke, purely because he has the same full name as my 5 yo son, but not more than I'd love for my Charlie to be drafted by the MFC in 13 years time.

I recon there's about the same chance of either/both happening at this point.

Callum Twomey doesn't have him in his top 30.

Others rate him a top 10 but Twomey comments that "there are questions on his running." If he was available at 29 or whatever, I would personally handcuff him to the draft table and claim him.

Brett Anderson compared him to Jobe Watson on SEN this morning. He hopes we pick him.

He's a feminist drug cheat?

Shame to see him go directly before our third. This is why people get frustrated during trade week when better deals can be struck if Mahoney learnt to negotiate better (e.g. Watts for 31, when Watts and 36 for 31 and 34 should have been pushed).

With that said I'm stoked to see us claim Fritsch, also recall Spargo being touted as a high draft prospect (at the start of the year) before injury.

Well, he made it to us and we didn't take him.  I'm not overly impressed.  Could have had Moore as well.  Didn't.  We could have made up for not having a first round pick with those guys.

Agree. Amazed.  Pick 29 Charlie Constable 

why? 1/ He is a gun mid. Gets the footy. Good size. 2/ best mates with Brayshaw

Perhaps our recruiters were privy to something we weren’t..

Reason 1 is nothing but speculation, and if was a such a gun he'd have gone in round 1.

Reason 2 is irrelevant

Mach 5 said in another thread that Constable has no tank.

:huh:

Well, between Fogarty and Constable, either Geelong are wiser than everyone else or they've not been paying attention to detail.

You can build a tank, but you can't make them grow half a foot. 

Well my Charlie has about another 4 or so feet still grow (perhaps more).  Pretty good tank already  (hyperactive little guy, drives me nuts at times).  Would have been interesting to see if his namesake was still there at 37, perhaps there is hope for a son to play for the MFC after all!

Off topic, but I hope we're already in Andy Brayshaws ear about coming home in a couple of years. Give Freo a taste of their own medicine.

@Mach5 is right. His tank isn’t fantastic. Ran a similar time trial to Rayner last week but the difference is that Rayner has some elite traits to his game.

I watched Charlie a few times this year and he was always labouring around the field. It’s hard to tell how he’ll go at AFL level. But imo, similarly to Gysberts, I’m not sure he has the aptitude for hard work. His lack of foot speed and average athletic ability works against him too.

He is a smart mid, but it’s really hard to tell how he’ll go at AFL level. As far as inside mids go however, we certainly had no need to draft him or Worpel.
