2023 AFL National Draft prospects: The next batch



Recommended Posts

WAFL season starts in 2 weeks, think JVRs younger brother Sam, will start getting spoken about a little. Put together good pre season, good size, endurance and like JVR in his attack on the contest in the air and at ground level

Cheers Pennant, is he psychically as big as Jacob?

Not at JVR’s current size in terms of build, but height and size is the same as JVR at the same age

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

In addition to a plethora of 'father-and-sons' recruiting to come for the Mighty Dees, this one is a 'must get' and perhaps, the most talented of all. Should he join the Dees, consider the learning curve that he will enjoy to emulate the skills and career of his Dad, and the related values to the team. He has so many attributes that his development is already in train so let's accelerate that potential.

Cal Twomey and Riley Beverage on the podcast 'Gettable AFL'  predict that clubs will offer-up 3 first rounders for Harley Reid.

Can't imagine why he wouldn't nominate the Dees.

Have been training with us, his Dad is still involve at the club (presented McVee's jumper on the weekend), and we are doing very well as a club on and off the field.

Would be crazy to go elsewhere.

Norff or Hawks will grab him. Atleast GWS wont.

No untried player is worth 3 top draft picks. Absurd.

GWS ?  Hold my beer!

The Hawks already have one hand on the #1 draft pick after last week’s disaster. Probably will continue that way throughout the season.

Agree we'd be crazy to pass up on Kynan Brown.  From what i've seen he is as tough as nails and has a lot of upside. A couple of his teammates would be nice to get as well.

ESPN’s early u/18 power rankings (no Knightmare?). Glaring omissions for mine are Murray’s Darcy Wilson and GWV’s George Stevens, otherwise a good wrap.
 

There is some talent in this crop and Reid isn’t the only player clubs will trade up for. Have to imagine the Suns 1st pick is on the table with a couple of high end Academy talents coming through.

Definitely have Darcy Wilson in top 20 - probably around 15 on this list. His pace and evasive skills as a mid would be a nice addition to the red and blue.

Was at the Claremont colts game, Curtin playing sore and kept the best defender busy, SVR missed a couple of set shots but presented all day and second efforts at ground level were good. Jett Sibosado (Freo Next Gen) plenty of tackles, pressure acts and smart ball use as medium forward, Bailey Banfield very Viney like around the stoppages, Austin Van Der Stuyf (one for 2024) really clean and smart with his disposal, Claremont just far to strong around the stoppages and those 3 tall forwards really hard match up for a lot of sides. Hiscock good tall defender for West Perth. Perth colts also good display against Subiaco Aidan O’Driscoll clean and damaging as usual, small forward Bobby Warrell caused headaches for Subiaco’s backline, Coen Livingston also important.  Oscar Dees and Luka Kentfield Subiaco’s best

Curtin played forward?

Generally thought he was a defender?

Played forward, is a really good defender but also a good forward, he has so much versatility. Will miss this week as there’s an AIS camp I believe.

Next round has 4 WAFL colts games back to back all at Joondalup, so no doubt plenty of recruiters will be there

Wonder what happened at ESPN to Knightmare? He used to command pride of place there and was previous to that prolific on the bigfooty board. 

Probably made money writing for ESPN but no longer.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    After a very wasteful first half of footy the Demons ended up cruising to a clinical victory over the Saints by 38 points at the MCG and ultimately reclaimed a coveted spot in the Top 4.

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
