It gets better if you are a Tigers fan giving it to the Crows supporters as they had 2 possible opportunities to draft Graham and choose;

Selection No.44 – Myles Poholke
Hamish Ogilvie says: "Myles is a big, strong midfielder with some power. He's good in the air, very clean ball take, which is the thing we like about him."

Selection No.51 – Elliott Himmelberg
Hamish Ogilvie says: "Elliott's been injured, so he's missed a bit of footy this year, but we really liked his start to the season. He played back in the Allies, but we think he's probably forward with maybe a bit of forward-ruck, because he's maybe 197cm-plus now, so he's grown."

Credit to our recruiter Matt Clarke on getting this one spot on  :clapping.

------------------------------

Post-draft, then newly-appointed Richmond Recruiting Manager Matthew Clarke outlined the reasons why Graham could have an instant impact in the AFL competition.

“Jack’s got a mature body . . . The knock on him might have been, has he got a lot (of growth) left in his body? He’s probably not going to grow much taller or get much bigger – but he doesn’t need to,” Clarke said.

“The thing about Jack is his ability to transition-run defensively, as a midfielder, was as good as we’ve seen in a long, long time.

“A lot of the boys at junior level tend to just go chasing the ‘pill’ and get it forward and kick a goal. But Jack’s ability to stick his head down, turn the other way and run back, was as good as we’d seen in this draft pool. And his GPS numbers were off the clock compared to most other boys in the group.

“So we’re really excited to have him.

“He was State (SA) under-18 captain this year and has impressive leadership qualities.

“One of our guys that works over there (in Adelaide), said they hadn’t seen one of the SA (under-18) captains like him in the last 10 years . . .

“He’s one of those guys that grabbed the players after the coach had spoken to them just to say, ‘Okay boys, this is what we’re doing, so let’s get on board’.”

Surely the Crows will come sniffing. Should we be looking to lock him away early? Possibly a future captain.

3 year deal should be on the table. He is a very good kid and he does show major leadership ability.
