2020 looks likely for Draper to get a good run at AFL level.
In 2020, the average age of the 2018 top AFL ruckmen will be 30.5 years. Only Grundy, Gawn, Nankervis, Witts, Vardy and Lycett will be younger than 30. Draper will be 22, he will be a very good tap ruckman running rings around a bunch of old men in general play provided he has the tank by then.
If more clubs adopt the “Grundy” prototype ruckman going forward it means quite a number of the dinosaurs ( particularly those with injury risk ) will be retired/de-listed over the next 2 years. We are talking McEvoy, 31, Ryder 32, Martin 34, Goldstein, 32, Jacobs 32. Sandilands 38, Mumford. 34
I expect a very different ruck landscape in 2020 and Draper is likely to be a significant part of that landscape,
