Aaron Cadman - Key Forward Height: 194cm Weight: 88kg This is one player to keep an eye on during the upcoming stage league games as a potential Key Forward prospect. A member of the AFL academy, he plays for Greater Western Victoria Rebels where he played as a key defender in his under-age year. This year he has been switched to the forward line where he has kicked 18 goals in 7 games and has been praised for his repeat efforts and "vice like" marking. Reading some draft watchers opinions, including a writer from rookie me (formerly draft central), they believe he's poised to come into first round and potentially top 10 calculations as the premier key forward in the draft. Has been named for Vic Country which kick off their campaign next week vs SA on Sunday the 26th. In terms of our key forward stocks, we all know that B. Brown and Tmac are approaching the end of their careers and already proving inconsistent when on the park. Our key forward cupboard currently includes M. Brown (likely to be delisted) and Weideman (so far failed to cement a best 22 spot). JVR has yet to debut but shows promising signs at Casey. This should see a Key Foward become a primary area of focus for our recruiting team (as well as a developing ruck). Now perhaps this would be more appropriately addressed via trade and free agency but the cupboards are pretty bare this season with Dan McStay the best on the market so far. Another option would be to look within, with someone like Petty showing ability in the front half. However some would view that as robbing Peter to pay Paul. In my view we could do with another developing Key Foward on our list while Brown and McDonald can let them ply their craft at Casey.
