Fantastic! Next year will be the perfect time for us to draft a young inside mid. Sounds like he could play forward early on.

Hoping we trade all future first picks to this year. Might need to bring in some future late picks

He's a left footer, played mostly in the guts and a bit on the wing on the weekend for the Chargers.  Their team had a number of high profile players missing and they gave games to some of their under 16 players, including defender Doug Kerr who was probably their best player and is an extremely exciting prospect for the 2024 draft.  Kynan is only small like his dad, but links play up well and is a good and simple decision maker with clean enough hands.  His best attribute is probably his speed, when he gets ball in hand he has a good burst of acceleration that can put two or three yards on an opponent from nowhere.  The knock is probably going to be on his kicking, it's not awful but its not damaging.  

All in all probably a similar player to his dad but probably with more of an attacking bent - a small, quick, hardworking goer. 

I'd be surprised if he's a high draft pick next year that has us being seen to be exploiting the draft system, but wouldn't be surprised if he was in Vic Metro's squad next year and then was on our list in some way, shape or form come year's end.

Watched some vision of his from the weekends game.

I think you have summed it up well. His speed and attack on the footy is impressive for an under-ager. 

I dont think he's a first rounder for next year but he's certainly an early to mid 2nd rounder in my opinion. He form in the NAB League as an under-age is actually pretty impressive and I think with another pre season under his belt and exposure through the Vic Metro will potentially push him up the charts.

Next year he'll play a more permanent midfield role as this year he's had a mix of more half forward and midfield due to someone the big names that's playing there this year.

The way he moves and zips around reminds me of Josh Daicos.

Not getting carries away at this stage but Kyan Brown tracking quite well as an under ager for Oakleigh Chargers.

See link below and scroll down to Western Jets Vs Oakleigh Chargers.

Listed as a game key player and 3rd in medal votes.

Going ok for an under ager.

From a  9th May 2018 AFL Website article on Father/Sons:

Watch list: 

Jeff White's son Kalani, 11, is another the club is keeping an eye on while he plays his footy for Surfers Paradise in Queensland. White also has twin sons named Kai and Tahj, still only seven years old. Adem Yze's son Noah, 12, Aaron Davey's son Marley, 8, David Schwarz's son Cooper, 14 and Shane Woewodin's son Taj, 15, are others on the Demons' radar, although admittedly they are all very young. Defender Nathan Brown also has three sons – Kynan, 13, Jake, 11, a talented soccer player, and Ryder, 9.  

Past father-son successes: 

Todd and Jack Viney are the club's major success story, with father and son both winners of the Demons' best and fairest award (1993, 1998 and 2016 respectively). Steven and Billy Stretch, Ron Barassi snr and jnr, Alan and Chris Johnson and Glenn Molloy and Graham Molloy are other examples of Melbourne's father-son combinations. - Ben Guthrie

Fairly certain the guy that wrote that wasn't at nor watched the game in some other form.

Regrettably, this is a problem these days with some of those who cover this area.

However, I believe that Brown has been selected to play in the Vic Metro Under 17 Future stars team on Sunday.

That's no nothing. I don't reckon that the tribunal that deliberated for 4.5 hours even watched the Cripps incident.

Would love to get a look at his game, sounds like he's tracking nicely. You don't lose any friends being a workhorse.

Here is the match, Layzie.

Kynan is wearing number 44.

https://www.afl.com.au/ondemand/highlights/754216/2022-nab-league-boys?episode=1#round-15

Other players of note are:

Chargers -

13 Nathan Philactides - Vic Metro bottom ager like Kynan rebounding defender/wingman

41 Doug Kerr - 15 year old defender, impressive!

34 Tom Gross - another highly rated 15 year old, midfield/half forward

Western Jets 

53 Logan Morris - Bottom Ager like Kynan Key Forward who I think will be first rounder next year.

41 Jake Smith - bottom age midfielder.

Earlier you mentioned that you think he will more likely be a second round pick.

I assume that as he is pulling big numbers and being named in the best teams whilst being an underager that he would excel further when he is playing agaisnt kids his own age next year. Therefore, I assume that he would be a certainty to be a first rounder. 

Is this a bit of an over simplification on my part?

You make a reasonable assumption in theory, but it's of course a little more nuanced than that.  Firstly, Brown is a January birthday so he will be one of the oldest players in his draft pool next year.  That means 'in theory' he is better able to cope with the demands of NAB football this year and also 'in theory' that he is less likely to have physical development improvement year to year.  It also 'in theory' means there a lot of players who with the more likelihood of added development (experience, growth et centera) could catapult over him.  There are players drafted every year who club's over-rate or draft higher because they are born later and have that theoretical more improvement.  I don't think the above is true of Kynan, because is small and seems like he will grow a bit more and has some upsize, but it is relevant as a response to your question.

The problem for Brown's draft standing is he is small, not an elite kick and likely to project to play at AFL level, some of the least difficult roles to fill (wing/flanker type) These are the things that hurt the loftiness of his likely draft position.

He's a good little player, but there a likely to be quite a few of them available.   At this stage I can think of 20 players who have showed more promise or who I think AFL clubs would likely covet more and I'm confident would be ranked ahead of him at this stage.  That takes into account no WA players and none of the players tied to interstate academies.  There will be a lot of players come from the clouds next year too.

It's possible there were five players playing in the Jets v Oakleigh game that will be drafted ahead of him next year.  It's not likely but it is possible.

Its also possible he could put on 5kg, grow an inch or two, and average 35 per game and be seen as a poor man's Sam Walsh and go top 20.

I just don't see, at the moment, many clubs desperate to use an early pick on an undersized wingman, without elite footskills.

Knighmare on Bigfoooty tipped him as a 2nd or 3rd rounder some ago. Its appears he has improved significantly since first selected for the Chargers. He started as a half back and moved into the midfield. He makes up for lack of size with toughness and hard at it play - the things that Goody likes. Goody also likes that together with footskills - Bowey.  Footskills are the difference between 1st round and the following rounds.

You are right it all depends on whether he can again rise to another level next season.

I would say if he continues improving he will be drafted to the Dees for sure.

Played well at the weekend for Vic Metro vs Queensland in the Under 17 Futures. Here’s how his performance was described in Rookie Me Central ~

#7 Kynan Brown (Oakleigh Chargers)
13/01/2005 | 180cm | Midfielder

Brown, a father-son candidate for Melbourne (son of Nathan), slotted straight into Metro’s midfield and had little trouble getting his hands on the ball. Though he possesses a punchy kick, he looked more slick by hand than foot, and used that to his advantage when helping his side work away from the centre bounces. A natural ball winner with strong bursts of speed, Brown was a consistent figure in the Big V.”

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space.

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals.

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
