Welcome to Demonland Matthew Jefferson

If the Demons miss out on drafting Aaron Cadman who is a top 5 draft pick, it is only logical that we look at the next best tall forward draft option.

This would be Matthew Jefferson from the Oakleigh Chargers.

Here is further information about him on the AFL website: https://www.afl.com.au/draft/prospects/matthew-jefferson

Matthew Jefferson also made the 2022 Under 18s All Australian side.

Furthermore here is a YouTube video about Matthew Jefferson oddly enough done by an Englishman:

Personally, I think we should seriously consider drafting Matthew Jefferson. Especially if we miss out on Aaron Cadman.

Teaming up Matthew Jefferson (or Aaron Cadman) with Jacob van Rooyen would definitely bode well for the future of the Demons forward line. Particularly when both Tom McDonald and Ben Brown retire in the next few seasons.

On draft predictions, you're right he's the next highest rated KPF after Cadman. He's not overly tall and is very slight though at sub 80kgs, so it will be years before we see him at AFL level if he makes it. From the clips I've seen, he' pretty soft and gets outbodied and shrugged off easily by smaller opponents. Cadman is taller and already 90kgs, so he's far more AFL ready. Jefferson had a few good games where he kicked a bag, but he's been inconsistent, so you have to wonder if his good games were just playing against poor opposition. 

Not against it as we need more tall forwards, but there might be other more physically capable KPF options later in the draft.

But beware - his American great great great grandfather’s brother’s second cousin  may have owned slaves which means he should be cancelled.

Scarily similar to Watts' second efforts at this same point which is too much of a warning sign imo. 

Looks neat, moves well but I can't see that competitive streak that we desperately need in a key forward. Especially given we have Brown, Fritsch and now Schache who all lack that defensive appetite and those strong defensive habits. 

It's a no from me.

Pretty slight. He looks 2 years away from being 2 years away…

That reminds me of how Brazilian's (the people - if you're wondering) describe Brazil:
"Brazil, the country of the future...and always will be".

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
