Since I was discussing the reviews I’ve read of Mynott with @frosty , I thought I’d copy a few here from BigFooty:
AFL website profile:
Mynott was one of the premier stoppage specialists in the TAC this year where he dominated in the middle when coming from school football. Mynott’s numbers as a first string midfielder where impressive where he had a patch of 4 games where he averaged almost 28 touches. Mynott was also very solid in his 3 games for Vic Metro often being one of their bigger ball winners and i believe had the highest tackle count for Vic Metro with one game having 9. Mynott’s emergence this year as a bonafide inside midfielder has been impressive, he has taken what made him great as a half-forward last year which include his great hands and attack on the ball which is exactly what you need for the inside midfielder role. Mynott has elite endurance but his speed is his main issue although his quick hands and agility make him look quicker so i dont see it being a major issue for him.
Mynott’s point of difference is his ability to go forward and kick goals, he is more than capable overhead he is even capable of taking a hangar (as seen above) and his clean hands make him just as good at ground level. Mynott is a natural footballer who is still learning to play the inside midfield role and considering how light he is he has plenty of room for improvement in that role. Mynott will work his ■■■ off to make it at AFL level and he is a rookie prospect that im extremely excited about and he is exactly what we are after - a tough inside midfielder.

Easter Ranges midfielder, 184CM
Caulfield Grammar kid who I think is a really smart footballer and who can play a few different roles. Quite like him around the middle because he is quite good at the stoppages, gets through traffic pretty well, runs both ways, applies good tackle pressure and uses it really well. Averaged 22 possessions which is decent and had a good carnival and impressed for sure. Watched his vision again recently and looks a real player. Knock is his speed.

Something about this kid quite like and to be fair there are still a few I would be happy with around here that have just shown some really good glimpses.
Averages 26 touches in his 3 TAC games and he is equally good inside and out. Its his work inside the contest that catches the eye. Huge contested ball winner and defensively works really hard. Lovely mover through traffic and has good foot skills. Came into champs and played a few different roles and thought he acquitted himself really well. Some of the things he did just screamed class. You just wonder what he could be when that body fills out to an AFL size. I’m pretty hopeful for him actually.
Must admit bit surprised still here so be interested in what others make of him.
D_P_S: Had him rated at 34 in my rankings so safe to say I’m very pleased with this pick, killed it in the first quarter of Eastern only final this year. I recommend everyone watch the first quarter of this game
where I got the link above from
Ant555: Nice pick. His issue is his light frame and not his ability. May take a couple of seasons to see what we get but he has one thing in his favor and that is he can play.
Height, Weight: 185cm, 75kg
Profile: Speedy, ball-winning midfielder who loves to tackle and works hard both ways.
Bishop (best player missed in ND): Trent Mynott for me - but in saying that. A lot of clubs aren’t going to use too many picks for 18 yr olds on Monday. One club had 1 name left on their list, others had none.
Mynott I reckon might fall in the middle of the draft. Played some good games this year, could clean up his kicking slightly, but I like his work on the inside.
Run and Carry: Kicks well on both feet. Difficult to spot the difference.
Adammania9: Balanced Midfielder 185cm/75kg
Age: 18 (October 4, 1999)
Eastern Ranges #14 | VIC Metro #13
Comparison: Andrew Swallow
Profile: Smart footballer who finds it, uses it well and carries his fair share of defensive work
GetGaff: Similar to Brayden Ainsworth he does his best work at stoppages. Before his draft year was more of an outside player but has developed a great balance to his midfield game in 2017.

Seems to get it, use it well, good overhead, work both ways and strong endurance.
Weaknesses is he’s slow and currently pretty light.
