Bump. Danog it's your turn.

Still a couple of names available who I thought would've gone earlier. The depth of the draft doesn't seem to be too bad over the first two rounds going by what we've come up with so far. Hopefully a good sign for us to find some gems in the real draft if we've done our homework properly :pray.

West Coast

Pick 46:

Tim O’Brien

Height: 192cm Wt: 81kg

Key forward prospect who allows Darling to move up to the 2nd tall role.  His selection is more important now that Lynch has moved to Collingwood as an UFA.

Pick #47 Sydney

Name: Dean Towers
Position: Midfielder
Age:  22
Height: 189cm
Weight: 83kg

The Swans are going for a mature age player from Nth Ballarat with their next pick and have selected Dean Towers, a 22 year old midfielder.  He plays well as a running half back or outside midfielder who likes to use his power, acceleration and speed to break the lines and create space. His skill level is solid without being spectacular but his work ethic and willingness to learn are traits that we believe we can work with.

Towers cemented his position in the North Ballarat senior side this year and has been rewarded with selection in the VFL State Squad, VFL Team of the Year, and winner of the 2012 Fothergill-Round Medal Winner as the most promising young talent in the VFL competition following in the footsteps of Ahmed Saad (2011), Michael Hibberd (2010), Michael Barlow (2009), Robin Nahas (2008), and Aaron Davey (2003).  He also broke Trent Croad's long standing (1997) draft record for the vertical standing jump.

Regardless of the fun factor in this exercise each year, I really appreciate the information you get out of it.  Having to make a pick later in the draft forces you to look through the draftees that don't get written about every 5 minutes and gives you a better understanding of who might be coming to our club.  And in that vein, I had never taken any notice of the last pick I did for Sydney, Dean Towers from Ballarat.  Reading different articles on him it seemed to me that he could be another Steve Morris type.  Does anyone who watches a bit of the VFL know if this might be the case, or have any other thoughts on him?

Melbourne Demons Selection #49

MICHAEL CLOSE
Age:18
Height: 195cm
Weight: 82kg
Club: North Ballarat Rebels



With selection 49 we are taking a bit of a gamble with Michael due to his history of injuries but we believe if he can get his body right, he will be an excellent power forward prospect who can pinch hit in the ruck when required. Michael has elite endurance and can run all day, making him a real handful for defenders. If he did not have such an interrupted under 18's campaign, I am almost certain he would have gone first or second round as an elite KP prospect.

Western Bulldogs:

Pick 50:
Lachie Hunter
Ht: 181cm
Wt: 78kgs

Son of former Footscray player Mark. We feel we've snared a good prospect via this Father/Son selection. Lachie is considered a highly skilled player who can play through the mid-field or up forward. Analysts rate him as having a good footy smarts.


Pick 51:
Kamdyn McIntosh
Ht: 192cm
Wt: 78kgs

Played 4 senior games for Peel Thunder near the end of 2012. Kamdyn is a tall defender that can play on talls or smalls. Considered a good decision maker who reads the play very well that compliments his skills. Has good endurance as his 4th placing in combine 3km time trial suggest. He also finished top 10 at the combine in the Beep Test and kicking assessment. The Bulldogs need KP players and although he will need to spend alot of time in the gym to add muscle and condition we believe Kamdyn can be a good long term KP back for us over the next decade. we were actually surprsied he survived until the 3rd round

Pick 52 - Essendon -  Jacob Ballard (186cm midfielder - Northern Knights)



Ballard is seriously under rated by he AFL community imho. He had a super consistent season for the Knights in the TAC Cup and was named in the bests in all but two of his 13 games this year. And he continued on with that form in the U18 Championships, and while he wasn't a standout he won plenty of ball and used it very well off of half back. One thing he showed for Vic Metro was that he doesn't need a lot of game time to win the ball. And even with his Draft Combine invite, it still seems as though people aren't really talking about him all that much. He is 186cm and has a mature body, he'll be pushing for selection in his debut season. He can run all day as he proved with a top 10 beep test result, and he uses the ball very well by foot. With his size, skills and athletic ability, he looks to be a perfect fit for the modern game, and I think he could easily push into the second round. What will dictate where he gets picked is whether teams think he will become that big bodied midfielder or if a career at half back is more likely. Either way, I think he could be a good player.

Name: Jacob Ballard
Position: Midfield/Defender
Age (by draft day): 18
Height: 186cm
Weight: 82kg
Quick Notes
•   Very fit (14.2 beep test).
 
Jacob Ballard- Photo appears with approval of Arj Online Images. All Rights Reserved
•   Strong in one on one contests.
•   Good disposal.
•   Strong mark.
•   Wins the football.
Jacob Ballard is a hard working competitive midfielder with a big engine who can also spend time in the back line as required.
Despite Ballard’s elite endurance there is a lot to like about him as a backman rather than an onballer. In defense Ballard is competitive both at ground level and when the ball comes in aerially, he still collects a lot of the football and his solid disposal can set up rebound attacks all day.
As a midfielder Ballard is solid but he is unlikely to be one of the top line midfielders at any AFL club.
Ballard will likely get drafted somewhere after pick 40 in this years draft.

Melbourne - Selection #53

MARCO PAPARONE
Age:18
Height: 193cm
Weight: 84kg
Club: East Fremantle



With Marco we have chosen another tall forward with elite fitness, but Marco also combines this with a very good goal sense and an ability to create something out of nothing.
We don't expect homesickness to be an issue as Marco is all about the footy.

If adelaide get a pick we will take  Shannon Taylor from Claremont

Composed small midfielder who can play an inside or outside role. Has excellent pace as shown when he was the fastest player over 20 metres (2.86 seconds) at last year’s NAB AFL Draft Combine at Etihad Stadium when considered for the mini draft. Represented WA again in the NAB AFL Under 18 Championships, averaging 14.5 disposals, four inside 50s and three tackles. Good user of the ball by hand and foot.

55. Essendon - Tullio DeMatteis (184cm midfielder - Norwood)


Tullio DeMatteis is an exciting young prospect at the Norwood Football Club who plays on the wing, in the mid-field and up forward. He has exceptional speed from his previous involvement with athletics and participated in the Bay Sheffield in late 2011. Possessing an excellent kick, Tullio is a member of the 2012 SA U18 squad.

Kevin Sheehan says: "An explosive medium half forward/winger with the ability to break away from the contest and step his way past opponents. His clean hands and goal sense make him a dangerous player when forward. Played two games with SA at Under-18 level and is averaging 24 disposals in four games with Norwood at Colts level."
