2023 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch



Recommended Posts

Logan Morris is a very special player imv … best available key forward in the draft  

playing style?  Think Nick Larkey type 

Good lead  Good mark  Good kick  Solidly built 

Dees /JT unlikely to consider given we have JVR Jefferson and converting Petty to a key forward.  If we’d not picked Jefferson last year, I’d be putting Morris on the top 6-7 players on JTs list

Not tall. Not athletic. Good hands, is competitive and looks like he'll end up being well built. Reckon his ceiling is Brody Mihocek.

Also, like Mihocek, has a Werribee connection.

Refresh top 50

1. Harley Reid

GC Match 2. Jed Walter (suns academy)

3. Coby Mckercher

4. Zane Duursma

5. Daniel Curtin

 6. Ryley Sanders 

7. Nick Watson

8. Ethan Read (suns academy),

9. Nate Caddy 

10. Connor O’Sullivan

11-20 Darcy Wilson, Jake Rogers (suns academy) , Archer Reid, Mitchell Edwards (Freo nga) , Riley Hardeman, Logan Morris , Caleb Windsor, Jordan Croft (bulldogs f/son) , Nathan Philactides, Ollie Murphy

21-30 Joel Freijah, Will McCabe (hawks F/son) , Will Dawson,  Ashton Moir, Koltyn Tholstrup, George Stevens, Charlie Edwards, Harvey Johnston, Archie Roberts, Harry Demattia,

31-40 Caiden Cleary (swans academy) , Clay Hall, Will Graham (Suns academy) , Will Green, Will Lorenz, Kade DelaRue, Angus Hastie, Cooper Simpson, Lance Collard,  Michael Rudd.  

41-50- Luamon Luai, Will Patton, Jack Delean, Jack Callinan, Koby Shipp, Alex Holt, James Leake, Billy Wilson, Aiden Odriscoll, Harvey Thomas (giants academy). 

For the Dees, others of interest were:

 Kynan Brown as a father son (Nathan Brown) would be looked at around pick 60 or as a rookie and would get nominated in my view. He’s a tough skinny scrapper with a huge heart and tenacity.  His skills are ok (left foot dominant) but can have some turnovers under pressure. 
 

Orlando Turner is from NT under our NGA academy. Whilst he was largely quiet, gf showed glimpses of brilliance and goalkicking smarts to indicate he might be picked to develop as a small forward.  Rookie pick likely. 


Sam Van Rooyen (brother of Jacob) could be rookie pick as well. He’s tall and lean and watching him v Vic metro , had a few “nearly moments” where we spilled marks or juggled attempts. Very nice kick for goal.  He has the base physique of a key forward and it would be good if the Dees gave him an opportunity.

So you think it’s unlikely the club will go for a key forward again in this draft? Even if Morris ends up being a late pick? We’d want to be sure Jefferson’s gonna be good to ignore a Caddy or Morris imo

Not looking great, with North probably getting 2 early picks before us, and getting access to Sanders (let’s hope not). Also Suns pick before us up for grabs. Can only hope we get it!

Nate Caddy still definitely an option. Good mark. Good skills. Loves a goal.

Would be better for the Dees might look at the Lions forward line and see that everyone is a goalkicker.   You can’t 3-4 players each week contributing zero to the goal sheet.

This is my pet peeve with our side. Half of our forwards are defenders first and it’s left to too few generating scores.

The balance is not quite right

No way is Logan Morris is the best key forward in the draft.

There's talk that Jordan Croft may not nominate as a Bulldogs Father/Son given their position with tall key position forwards. Is there any developments in this regard? Can't find anything on the internet re deadlines for father/son nominations pre-draft.

Well that would be an interesting call. Croft is very good but yes the bulldogs have JUH, Naughton, Lobbe and Darcy already.

Will he be capable of rolling through the midfield at AFL level?

I think so. Won’t be full time in there, but his burst speed out of stoppage and spatial awareness in close is very good. He and Kozzie breaking into space would be a major headache for opp defenses.

Can he take an overhead mark? I think our side already has too many small players in outside roles.

He’s got a good vertical leap (athletically outstanding) and strong hands overhead, so yes, but you’re not bringing him in to be a marking target.

Highly competitive and terrific goal sense.

On another area of the ground, thought Ollie Murphy was excellent in key defence for Sandringham in the other prelim. Would have him behind O’Sullivan, but not far behind.

I’ve been horrible here the last two weeks but feeling better now. Bullish next year even. We’re close. A fwd back and winger and we’re close I think. All draftees I mean. 
 

Nate yes.

Here’s a highlight package of Watson playing mainly through midfield (spent time everywhere in this game), gives a pretty good snapshot of his overall game.

    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

    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
