Will Sutherland has chosen cricket and so is not in the draft.....

Unless we were planning on trading our two first round picks for a top five pick - means stuff all to us....

Top shelf loaded…but cupboard bare below

By Brett Anderson
SEN


This year’s draft class lacks the depth of the 2016 edition — and potentially that of 2018 — but it still has quality at the top end.

In keeping with an even and unpredictable AFL season, how I rank the prospects right now [post U18 Champs] is quite different to how I projected them leading into the year.

Reminder: This is purely my rankings, not a mock draft – that will come in November.

17. Patrick NAISH
– Northern Knights

DOB: 15/1/99 | Ht: 180.2cm | Wt: 69.1kg

Naish looms as Richmond’s best father-son prospect in many years, probably since David Bourke in the early 2000s. He is a bubbly outside midfielder who can also play at half back and break the lines, or across half forward where his nose for goal is akin to that shown by his dad, Chris, during his days at Tigerland.

He has booted a couple of big bags of goals for Ivanhoe in the AGS competition. He is a penetrating kick but at times can be a bit too adventurous with his decisions leading to bad turnovers.

His contested ball winning is a work in progress, but should improve with added body size and strength, but he needs to be a more committed tackler once he gets to the next level.

Ah yes. David "Mr Glass" Bourke could jump higher than Cazaly, but would break on the way down.
The club that keeps giving.

Reckon it's worth looking at Jonty Scharenberg & Sam Walker as a couple of late picks/rookies....both were u'18 AA's  overlooked in last year's draft after being widely tipped as top 30 picks....

Scharenberg missing out was a weird one. I can sort of accept that he didn't get picked up in the National Draft, but was amazed at the time that he didn't get selected as a rookie pick.

Naish now a top 10 pick according to Callum Twomey.


1. Rayner
3. Davies-Uniacke
3. Cerra
4. Dow
5. Brander
6. Stephenson
7. D.Fogarty
8. Higgins
9. Hayes

10. Naish
POS: Midfielder, Ht 183cm, Wt 73kg, DOB 15/1/1999
From Northern Knights/Vic Metro

July ranking: 14

The likely Richmond father-son pick has had a terrific season that saw him selected in the NAB AFL Under-18 All Australian side after the national championships. The son of former Tiger Chris is a light-bodied midfielder who has shown a penchant for pushing forward and kicking goals. He's a long and driving kick, and has a genuine goal-sense to his game that makes him a dangerous player. Will need to add some size, but his development this year has been promising and he loves to take things on.

11. Coffield
12. Naughton
13. Brayshaw
14. Clark
15. O'Brien
16. Constable
17. Allen
18. Ballenden
19. Balta
20. Garner
21. Petruccelle
22. L.Fogarty
23. Murphy
24. Moore
25. Spargo

Brett Anderson was saying yesterday he'd be shocked if Richmond had to give up one of there draft picks for him.
Anderson has him going between 25 and 30.
