East Fremantle prospect Judd McVee is a smooth-moving defender with clean handling and skills, traits which may bode for more midfield minutes in the future.

MelbourneFc.com.au_JuddMcVee

MELBOURNE will be giving Judd McVee a shot at the top level, signing him in the NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

McVee was made to wait for his AFL call-up after missing selection in Thursday night’s National Draft, but there was plenty of interest in the defender due to his class off half-back.

The 18-year-old is known for providing plenty of rebound from defence and will complement the likes of Christian Salem, Jake Bowey and Trent Rivers at the Dees.

Standing at 182cm, McVee has clean hands at ground level and impressed many with his composure for East Fremantle in 2021.

The Western Australian becomes Melbourne’s fourth new addition this week, following the recruitment of Jacob van RooyenBlake Howes and Taj Woewodin in the National Draft.

Jed Hagan definitely one to watch, his desire to work himself into the ground with repeat efforts is like nothing I have seen since Ben Cousins.

Just accumulates and racks up possessions due to pure workrate

Any thoughts/insight on McVee?

He sounds like Christian Salem but perhaps without the footy IQ:

"One of the smoothest operators in the draft pool, Judd McVee is the kind of player you want rebounding the ball out of defence. He handles the ball cleanly and is efficient in his use by foot, showcasing class to manoeuvre out of tight spots and keep cool in a crisis. With greater consistency and enhanced midfield craft, McVee has the tools to become a tidy player at the top level".

STRENGTHS:

+ Class
+ Clean hands
+ Kicking
+ Rebounding

IMPROVEMENTS:

- Production
- Consistency

Very happy with this selection.

Edit:  I just saw the write up at the club which mentions his 'footy smarts'.  Maybe he is more like Salem than I first thought.

From Jordan McArdle who’s been covering the draft out West:
 
Geraldton/ product Judd McVee the only West Aussie picked up in the rookie draft. Once rated a top-10 draft prospect when he won WA’s under-16s MVP award, McVee has great foot skills, composure across half-back. Joins Sharks teammates Trent Rivers, Luke Jackson at the Dees.

Let's hope that Emperor McGowan doesn't deny them exit visas 🤔

Wow, fair rave on the young kid.

Sorry Roger, outside of PSA and state games, my WAFL Colts viewing over the last 18 months wasn’t great.

Don't worry monoccular. They're all on three year contracts earning hard currency for the state as part of the secretive Bureau 39.

Welcome aboard Judd looking forward to seeing you in the Red and Blue young man can’t have to many quality backs on the list. You will have the chance to train with the best players and coaches going around.

Looks like he has long arms for his height, might be useful for spoiling.

Interesting that he was a quality midfielder in under 16's then kind of relegated to a half back flank role in his draft year.

Seems to have gears like good players do. Cruises when evaluating his options then can pull the trigger if needed.

Did he finish school in 2020 like most WA guys do a year earlier than here?

I just wonder if he's a bit cruisy. Bit of a Travis Johnstone vibe almost. I wonder if the professional and competitive environment of the MFC will fire him up a bit.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
