#38 Sam Draper

Our first rookie draftee, Draper, is a 202cm ruckman from South Adelaide, weighing 105.8 kgs aged 18.

From Inside Footy:

Soccer background.

Can play tall back, tall forward and ruck.

Played Under 18’s in the SANFL, averaging 4.6 kicks.

Only just started playing AFL so he’s probably a really good kick.

Decent wing span!

More than that, a project ruck with actual meat on his bones, not one who needs to be force fed like some fois gras goose.


#13

Looks incredible for a guy who has played the game for 8 months!

I wonder if he’s any relation to the former Australian tennis player and golfer Scott Draper.
