if it seems too good to be true......

whats the knock on this bloke?

Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

Never that knowledgable on the drafts outside the well known top 10-20 and admit I knew nothing about this bloke. Why did he slide so much? Seems like a steal but surely there are question marks for every club to pass him at least once.

The old man just messaged me saying apparently Graham had a quad injury. Is that all?

Yes he was injured early on but no-one cares he was outstanding in the carnival.  He was S.A. captain & won the medal so he has leadership skills & his a cracking kick like that Dew used to be. It's obvious clubs have just missed this player probably eye's on Little Willie maybe who Eagles took

He can't kick.
Has a real up and under style Grigg like.
Can certainly get the ball but what he does with it is a worry.

Reckon thats a pretty good description Loui.
The possibility of physical and mental collapse is now very real. No sympathy for the Devil, keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride.

Ando had him at pick38 in his phantom draft

https://www.sen.com.au/news/2016/11/14/top-50-prospects-for-2016-afl-draft-26-50/   

Ht: 180.3cm | Wt: 81.1kg | Inside Midfielder | North Adelaide

A strong-bodied midfielder, the 2016 Larke Medallist is an intriguing prospect. is a good two-way worker and spreads well enough from the contest. He positions himself well at stoppages and helps to organise teammates, which demonstrates his leadership qualities. In some ways he got by at times thanks to his size and physicality at under 18 level, but due to injuries (which are a worry), wasn’t able to play any league football this year with the Roosters. His dad Jeff played with West Torrens and Woodville in the late 1980s and early 90s.

Strengths: tenacity, work-rate, ball winning.

Needs to improve: kicking, injuries.

Injuries: Quad in 2015. Quad in August – didn't test at combine.

Combine test results: Repeat Sprint – N/A. 20m Sprint – N/A. Agility – N/A. Beep Test – N/A. 3km TT – N/A.

Draft range: 20-40.

What they say: “A hard working midfielder who pushes himself to the contest throughout a game and is relentless in pursuit of the ball. Played reserves for us this year but has played a senior game despite the injury.” – North Adelaide football development manager Neil Sanders.

Shifter Sheehan had him going at pick 16

http://www.afc.com.au/news/2016-11-18/shifter-sheehans-draft-top-40

16. Jack Graham
Tea Tree Gully/North Adelaide (South Australia)
25/2/1998 Height: 180cm Weight: 81kg

there has to be something besides his kicking?

geez he looks to have good hands and awareness in traffic

So are my ways higher than your ways,

Will add to our midfield and wins his own pill. Kicking is not a weapon but it is fine as he mainly an in and under player. Good get!
