2023 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch



Recommended Posts

The Herald Sun’s online page has a feature today highlighting the 2023 draft prospects.

There are two players covered in the article of special interest to Demon fans so I thought we should kick things off early.

The first is a father/son prospect who is the son of our Nathan Brown who played 146 games for the club between 1998 and 2007. A dogged small utility, Brown’s achievements included -

  • Fourth Best and Fairest 2002
  • Most Consistent Player 2002
  • Second Best and Fairest 2004
  • Most Consistent Player 2004
  • Best Clubman 2005 


Here’s the item about his son Kynan

Or the Robbie to the Tom (Flower) ...

The Coodabeens in the 1980s were the first ones to run with this concept to my knowledge. 

I once shared a team on this forum consisting of dud brothers at Melbourne but it angered and upset so many posters that I had to ask Andy to delete the post.

Sounds like we will need a heap of picks for next year's draft?

more likely that we'll trade out of next year's first rounder, into this year's first round, and 'bank' some third and fourth round selections to accumulate enough points in 2023 to cover the recruitment of kynan brown in the likelihood he goes mid first round

Harley Reid was by a distance the best talent in the Vic Country-Allies game.  Ashton Moir is going to be something to follow - kicks set shots with both feet and a mercurial forward. 

An unorthodox action but if it works for him then that's what matters.

Yes both Harley Reid and Zane Duursma were super impressive in the Vic Country v Allies under 18s match.  They’d be drafted this year Vic eligible and probably be top 30-40.

Reid would be borderline top 5, possibly higher, and a top 10 certainty.  Duursma borderline top 10.

Yes IB13 they looked impressive and certainly top 10 likely in 2023. Reid in particular will be very popular as he takes the game on as a midsize back with good skills & pace but looks very capable as a man on man defender.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
