A big thanks for doing this, even though you are hard pressed, l fully appreciate the effort you have expended to do this.
Like Albert, I consider this thread a highlight leading up to the draft, something to look forward to every year, in the fond hope that we will pick up a ‘benfti’ special. This year we have already skimmed the cream off the trade table, and our late draft pick, opens the door for one of these guys in a way that wasn’t so apparent in the past. Fingers crossed Dodoro, pulls the trigger on one or even two of these guys, and they do a Tippa!
Like others l am excited by the prospect of Sambono in particular, and after all the other feel good stories that have come out of Essendon recently l can easily imagine him in our colours, blitzing one and all. I also like the sound of Dom Grant as well.
So going through AFL draft machine (if I see another cbus ad I will throw my computer out the window), and one who seems appropriate for this thread is Gordon Narrier. Looks to have elite acceleration, and a beautiful left boot. Do you have any thoughts on him? Obviously I’ve only seen the highlights on the AFL site, but his game looks like it would translate. He’s played 17 games of WAFL seniors this year as an 18yo (and he’s 187cm).
Thanks for the scouting report Ben. I would be leaning toward Dominic Grant if it wasn’t for the multiple stress fractures in his feet - too great a risk especially when someone like Jake Patmore might be available. Would be happy with any of the other players mentioned.
