    Axel's 2011 Phantom Draft

    ROUND ONE

    #1 - Greater Western Sydney
    Stephen Coniglio
    183 / 70 / 93
    Recruited From: Swan Districts
    Bio: Everyone knew he'll become a star after his very first game, the WAFL grand final where he dominated as a 16 year old and he has only got better since. There really isn't any weak points in his game, he's got a great workrate, moves well in traffic, great kicking action, hits the scoreboard regularly, has a great footy brain and skills are elite.


    #2 - Greater Western Sydney
    John Patton
    197 / 95 / 93
    Recruited From: Eastern Ranges
    Bio: John is easily the best tall forward in this draft and players like him don't come in every draft, GWS really do have a player of their hands, he's already an AFL made player so expect a few early games. For a guy of his size he's very quick and athletic, always provides a contest, does the second/third efforts extremely well and has an amazing pair of hands. People compare him to Tom Hawkins and that he'll struggle at AFL level but John is a completely different player. Hawkins relies on his body while Patton uses his pace and is more of a lead up forward.


    #3 - Greater Western Sydney
    Matthew Buntine
    188 / 84 / 93
    Recruited From: Dandenong Stingrays
    Bio: He's very professional on how he goes about his footy and that's why i think he'll be a star in the future and a perfect fit for Brisbane in the half back. He was extremely impressive against the Geelong VFL side, he provided so much run off half back and did not miss a target by foot while at the same time his opponent didn't have much impact. He had a poor champs series due to injuries but clubs can see how talented and it'll be hard for any club to pass on him.


    #4 - Greater Western Sydney
    Don Tyson
    186 / 82 / 93
    Recruited From: Calder Cannons
    Bio: Few people would have not known who he was before the u18 games but after his performances, especially his GF performance quickly won a few fans over. He's a midfielder who has the ability to play inside and outside and have a big impact on the game and racks up big numbers each week. Skills are very good, so is his tackling and awareness and while he's not very quick he still has the ability to escape from packs.


    #5 - Greater Western Sydney
    Billy Longer
    202 / 95 / 93
    Recruited From: Northern Knights
    Bio: Longer is the best ruckman available in this years draft. His tap work is very solid but the thing i like about him is that he'll basically act as another midfielder for you, his skills are surprisingly good and for a guy of his height his skills at ground level quick and direct. Another major bonus of recruiting this guy is that he can play in more than one position which is a must in the modern game. He'd be the perfect "resting" ruckman.

    #6 - Port Adelaide
    Chad Wingard
    181 / 68 / 93
    Recruited from : Sturt
    Bio: Wingard is a pretty small skinny kid but you can't fault his attack on the ball, has to be top three in the draft, he just see's the ball and throws his body at it. What i love about him is that he never panics and always picks the right decision, he always seems to have that extra second. His skills are elite. He isn't much of an accumulator but more of a player who will get 20 possessions and have a big impact type of guy. He's also capable of playing as a forward when he's resting.


    #7 - Greater Western Sydney
    Will Hoskin-Elliott
    182 / 73 / 93
    Recruited From: Western Jets
    Bio: WHE is set to sky rocket up the rankings after some amazing draft combine results. His endurance (15.12 beep test and 9.53min 3km time) is elite and when you combine that with speed you really do have the complete player and when you had the fact that he's flexible, smart, great decision maker, doesn't go to ground easily and can easily kick 50 meters it'll be impossible for recruiters to pass on him.


    #8 - Brisbane Lions
    Adam Tomlinson
    192 / 86 / 93
    Recruited From: Oakleigh Chargers
    Bio: Undersized KPP who is more of a defender but can play as a forward. Hasn't played up to his potential at the start of the year but has only gotten better as the year went on and it expected to be a big riser. He's a good overhead marker, good ball user and agility is very solid. Can have enormous impact on his day at either end of the ground.


    #9 - Greater Western Sydney
    Todd Elton
    197 / 87 / 93
    Recruited From: Dandenong Stingrays
    Bio: Todd had a disappointing champ series but there is no doubt he's very talented. He's a work horse who will never spot providing leads and become the link up man. He was a good pair of hands and great skills for a man of his type. He won't be the type who will kick bags each week but more of the guy who will rack up a very respectable amount of possessions and marks and roam the CHF/HFF area. He is also capable of playing in the ruck.


    #10 - Greater Western Sydney
    Elliot Kavanagh
    187 / 78 / 93
    Recruited From: Western Jets
    Bio: Another quality midfielder who has been struck down by injury early this year. Despite not playing any champ games his first game back at TAC level was unbelievable. Completely dominated and you wouldn't have known he was out injured for so long. He's a pretty dashy quick player and his footy smarts are one of a kind, if he played every game this season you'd think he'd be a top ten pick, will be very interesting to see where he goes in the real thing. Scored well in the clean hands test at the draft combine.


    #11 - Greater Western Sydney
    Liam Sumner
    182 / 70 / 93
    Recruited From: Sandringham Dragons
    Bio: Really hard to pick where Liam will go in the draft but i think based X factor he'll easily be a top ten pick. There's so much to talk about this kid, he possess amazing athletic ability, agility, great leap and strength despite been a pretty skinny player. Watching him against SA i loved the way he broke free from stoppages and was still able to have enough time to delivery a bullet pass to a forward. At the moment he's very inconsistent but never the less a super raw talent with enormous potential.


    #12 - Brisbane
    Toby Greene
    180 / 78 / 93
    Recruited From: Oakleigh Chargers
    Bio: This kid just gets the job done each week without any trouble. He's an extremely drilled inside midfielder who can win plenty of the contestant stuff, great endurance, agility and attack on the ball but at the same time his run and carry will be irreplaceable for whatever club decides to take him.


    #13 - Greater Western Sydney
    Taylor Adams
    181 / 80 / 93
    Recruited From: Geelong Falcons
    Bio: For an inside midfielder his outside skills are elite likewise his endurance. He's a great tackler, works smartly around packs and his skills under pressure are very impressive. He's a terrific mark for a guy of his size which is a massive plus for him considering the new rules the AFL has put in. Expect him to play a bit in the forwardline when he's resting.


    #14 - Greater Western Sydney
    Mitchell Grigg
    183 / 81 / 93
    Recruited From: Norwood
    Bio: Whenever i watch him play he always reminds me of Rich. An AFL built inside midfielder with very damaging skills. He has the ability to win plenty of the contestant ball and use it effectively while at the same time his outside game is just as good. His main strength has to be his kicking, the 50 meter bullet passes will definitely have recruiters looking at him. He dominated the champ series and dominated to make a mark in the SANFL.


    #15 - Richmond
    Devon Smith
    175 / 73 / 93
    Recruited from: Geelong Falcons
    Bio: A player who can play as a small forward or an inside midfielder and who possess great leadership qualities while footy wise he's very quick, great mark for his size, great endurance, a smart decision maker and wins his own ball. He also has the ability to play as a small forward and have impact, kicked 6 goals against NT on top of his 26 possessions.


    #16 - Fremantle
    Shane Kersten
    191 / 90 / 93
    Recruited From: South Fremantle
    Bio: A power forward who despite missing most of the year with injury is the second best option behind Patton. You only need to watch last years efforts to see how good he can be, great potential. He outperformed Darling as an underage player which says a lot. He's a quick leading stay at home forward who has an amazing pair of hands and a very accurate kick at goal. Currently dominating the WAFL and his stocks will only rise come draft day.



    #17 - Western Bulldogs
    Fraser McInnes
    194 / 91 / 93
    Recruited From: Perth Football Club
    Bio: Picked purely on upside. A KPP who can comfortable at either end of the ground but will be used as a defender because of his ability to read the play well and his ability to win most of the one on one battles. He's a very strong marker, good mover for his size and has some pretty decent agility to add to his package.



    #18 - North Melbourne
    Brandon Ellis
    181/ 81 / 93
    Recruited From: Calder Cannons
    Bio: Excellent shut down defender with a very unique build and can definitely play a role next season for any team. Very team orientated, smart reader of the play, great tackler, good strength, closing speed is immense, can win the contestant ball with ease and his rebound kicks are a class above when you judge them by hurt factor.


    #19 - Essendon
    Brad McKenzie
    188 / 75 / 93
    Recruited From: Sturt
    Bio: Like the other McKenzie his kicking is a real feature of his game. He's able to kick targets lace out from 50+ meters away, he has a very good footy brain, doesn't crack under pressure and to top it off his inside work is above average. The only thing that doesn't go his way is that he isn't very athletic and recruiters focus heavily of that these days but that's something a few pre seasons can definitely fix.


    #20 - Fremantle
    Jordan Lockyer
    190 / 85 / 93
    Recruited From: West Perth
    Bio: One of the most physical and aggressive players in this draft. His attack on the ball is first class, takes massive contestant marks, can dodge tackles and break them and more importantly his kicking and hand balling skills are solid. What will clubs will love about him is that he can play in almost any position. He can play as a shut down defender or as a goal kicking forward.


    #21 - Sydney
    Tom Mitchell F/S
    181 / 79 / 93
    Recruited From: Claremont
    Bio: Personally i think Mitchell has a top five pick so Sydney definitely did hit the jackpot here. He's able to play as an inside or outside player and take the game away from the opposition. Elite skills, great endurance, strong around the hips and his awareness around packs is special. He was injured for most of this year but dominated in the one WAFL game he played and the last two rounds of the champs for WA.

    #22 - Carlton
    Sam Frost
    193 / 85 / 93
    Recruited From: Sandringham Dragons
    Bio: Isn't the best defender in the draft but he's extremely athletic and flexible he's able to play at either end of the ground and have immediate impact which is what ceperates him with the other KPP's in the draft. He's very quick, has a great leap and always dones the team thing.


    #23 - West Coast
    Daniel Markworth
    189 / 78 / 92
    Recruited From: Calder Cannons
    Bio: What a great story we have here. All round talented sports player who played basketball and tennis in his early days knocked back an offer from Calder Cannons in year 12 to focus on his studies. Ended up getting 95 and luckily another invite from CC as an overage player. He has improved enormously this season, he's a smart lead up forward who has a massive kick on him. Very flexible, athletic and fast.


    #24 - Adelaide
    Shane Nelson
    178 / 70 / 93
    Recruited From: West Perth
    Bio: Super talented all round player who can run all day. He's a outside midfielder who racks is able to rack up big numbers each week and more importantly use it effectively. He's a fantastic "link" up player and can collect a few touches in a single run. Another positive thing about Shane is that he's equally as good as an inside player and will win you clearances. Scored well in most areas in the draft combine.


    #25 - St.Kilda
    Nic Haynes
    191 / 70 / 92
    Recruited From: Dandenong Stingrays
    Bio: Love players who take the game on with their speed and Brisbane definitely lack in this department. He's very flexible as he can play as a rebounding half back player or as a attacking forward line one. As you would expect his agility is his key weapon while his marking is super solid also and his awareness is also great. Despite been a year older than most draftees i doubt he'll play many games next year due to his skinny frame so he will need a few pre seasons in the gym before becoming a solid contributor.


    #26 - Richmond
    Andrew Boseley
    194 / 80 / 92
    Recruited From: Geelong Falcons
    Bio: I rate Andrew very highly and the Dogs are in need for another quality defender. He's probably the best KPD in the draft and is one of a few who have actually limited Patton's impact on a game. He's a very athletic player who reads the ball extremely well in the air. He's still got plenty of improvement left in him so he's a very exiting prospect.


    #27 - Adelaide
    Hayden Crozier
    184 / 68 / 93
    Recruited From: Eastern Ranges
    Bio: Very inconsistent player but has a crazy amount of X factor and can you a game by himself in a quarter of footy. He IS a highlights package, he's super smart around goals, good skills, pretty quick and has the best leap in the draft. Once he gets a few pre seasons into him and gains more weight he'll become more consistent and will play more time in the midfield on top of his forwardline work.


    #28 - West Coast
    Murray Newman
    179 / 67 / 93
    Recruited From: Swan Districts
    Bio: Super exiting prospect here. Loves taking the opposition on with his speed and generally wins the battle. He has a penetrating kick when he wants to use it while his handballing is very accurate and quick. Loves to be involved, very team orientated type player who tries to get his team mates involved and for a guy of his weight he can brush off tackles. Can link up from the backline and have a chain of possessions then deliver it onto a forwards chest.


    #29 - Fremantle
    Jackson Paine
    193 / 87 / 93
    Recruited From: Sandringham Dragons
    Bio: He has all the attributes of becoming a successful forward. Good lead up speed, great overhead marker, marks the ball at it's highest point which is what i love about him. On top of that he's workrate will win him plenty of the ball and has the skills to use it effectively. He has very solid in the champ series and was clearly over shadowed by Patton.


    #30 - Brisbane Lions
    Sam Docherty
    183 / 83 / 93
    Recruited From: Gippsland Power
    Bio: That super quick half back flanker that every team must have. Sam is the best in the business, he's one of the fastest players in the draft and racks up plenty of rebounds out of defense. His defensive work is very solid but the thing recruiters will love about him is his kicking under pressure, he's already one of the best kicks in the draft and under pressure he's extremely clam and collected.



    ROUND TWO

    #31 - Essendon
    Sam Kerridge
    188 / 84 / 93
    Recruited From: Bendigo Pioneers
    Bio: Big bodied inside midfielder who's first two steps allows him to escape from the would be tackler. Very consistent in racking up big numbers each week and looks super dangerous whenever he does have it. Can take a big mark so expect him to have some forwardline action when resting.


    #32 - Geelong
    Henry Schade
    194 / 81 / 93
    Recruited From: North Hobart
    Bio: When he debuted for his very first game his impact was immense and only continued to improve in the champs. Despite not been fully developed he still managed to beat his direct opponents in the one on ones despite most of them been much bigger than him. Another massive plus would be that he has hurt factor with his disposal despite been a full back. His penetrating left foot can break open a game while also having a good leap and agility to add to his game.


    #33 - Hawthorn
    John Mckenzie
    178 / 77 / 93
    Recruited From: South Launceston
    Bio: One of the most professional players in the draft. This guy is pure class on and off the field. A goal kicking inside midfielder with tremendous leadership qualities. Does all the hard inside work and dishes it off to his outside team mates and sets an example for the rest of the team. Great skills, endurance, awareness and never gives up. Won the division two MVP.


    #34 - Geelong
    Myles Bolger
    199 / 80 / 93
    Recruited From: South Fremantle
    Bio: Will be a big steal if taken at this pick. He's the best tap ruckman on this draft but the downside for him is that he needs to get more involved in the midfield/possession work because his disposal efficiency is great and he can take a mark so clubs will want to see more of him and be able to play in more than one position. Has had some injury troubles in the past so it's a risk/reward pick.


    #35 - St.Kilda
    Julian Dobosz
    193 / 85 / 92
    Recruited From: North Hobart
    Bio: One of my favorites in the draft and big steal for this pick. He's an amazing talented full forward who simply cannot drop a mark. He's probably the best contestant marker in the draft and has big plenty of massive bags this season. He has a damn good footy brain, he always seems to be the right position and reads the ball in the air so much better than his opponent while body wise he's very athletic and quick.


    #36 - Melbourne
    Josh Waldhuter
    184 / 83 / 93
    Recruited From: Central District
    Bio: Matured body player who isn't afraid to put his body on the line. His attack of the ball is huge and the repeat efforts is what clubs will be after. Along with that his speed is above average and skills are great - very penetrating kick. Will be a very good pick at for whoever takes him but needs to work on his tank, he can fade out in games and doesn't rack up massive numbers.


    #37 - St.Kilda
    Haydn Hector
    181 / 81 / 93
    Recruited From: Gippsland Power
    Bio: Was very surprised GWS didn't pick him up considering they asked him to attend the combine last year. Inside/outside midfielder with elite endurance and can play run with roles to good effect. His attack on the ball is great, good reader of the play, great courage and is a super mark for his height. His kicking can be great but can also let him down at times.


    #38 - Hawthorn
    Zyrus Manson
    195 / 84 / 93
    Recruited From: Claremont
    Bio: Really hard to tell where Zyrus will go because i have a feeling the "go home factor" will play a massive role on which clubs will want to take the risk and benefit on the rewards. Manson is a super exiting prospect and can tear games apart. His leap is elite and when you combine that with his speed and height it'll be hard for any defender to stop him. If he can get used to the speed of the AFL and develop a better footy brain he can easily be a top five player in this draft.


    #39 - Western Bulldogs
    Sebastian Ross
    187 / 82 / 93
    Recruited From: North Ballarat Rebels
    Bio: A player who makes thing happen through his work rate. Always tried to be involved where ever he can, lays good tackles and when he does have the ball his vision along with his footskills are a real feature of his game and can be very damaging if isn't shut down. Not a player you'd want to play freely close to the goals.


    #40 - North Melbourne
    Alex Forster
    189 / 75 / 93
    Recruited From: Norwood
    Bio: Medium sized defender who can uses the ball brilliant on both sides, excellent marker of the ball and demands the ball when rebounding. On top of that he can do his job defensively and was one of the reasons why SA did so well in the champ series. Was really the surprise package of the year.


    #41 - Adelaide
    Jackson Merrett
    187 / 70 / 93
    Recruited From: Geelong Falcons
    Bio: Outside midfielder who great leader qualities. He's super quick, great kick and isn't afraid of the inside stuff despite been very skinny but the one thing that stands out is his workrate and ability to find space because of it.



    #42 - St Kilda
    Thomas Sheridan
    185 / 76 / 93
    Recruited From: Calder Cannons
    Bio: Expect him to rise up the draft rankings after a very promising draft combine. Usually performs without getting much hype unlike a few others but he's an inside midfielder with very polish skills, good awareness and never panics.


    #43 - Sydney
    Brett O’Hanlon
    189 / 82 / 93
    Recruited From: Dandenong Stingrays
    Bio: Power forward who has all the aspects of becoming elite. Very strong marker, presents well, great reader of the play, work his way to the front at all costs, fifty plus meter left foot kick and is able to kick bags and win the game for the team.


    #44 - Carlton
    Michael Talia
    193 / 87 / 93
    Recruited From: Calder Cannons
    Bio: Very vocal - great leader. Can play one on one and win plenty of the battles while also been able to play the loose man in defenders and help his other teammates out. He's a great contestant marker and fairly solid endurance. On the downside is that his speed isn't that great and can get caught out by fast lead up types and his foot skills can be dodgy at times but those things can definitely be worked on.


    #45 - Port Adelaide
    Cameron Ellis-Yolmen
    187 / 78 / 93
    Recruited From: Woodville West-Torrens
    Bio: Strong inside midfielder who wins plenty of the contestant ball, stoppages and loves to tackle. Has clean and quick hands and uses it effectively while his making is great also. He's a pretty smart decision maker and can make things happen in the middle.


    #46 - Adelaide
    Lewis Hender
    187 / 88 / 93
    Recruited From: Glenelg
    Bio: Super exiting forward who burst into the scene. He's a true CHF who gives plenty of leads and can become a real key player when moving forward. Has good endurance and agility which is a great combination for any forward these days. Isn't known to be a big goal kicker and can chip in when needed.


    #47 - Collingwood
    Ben Brown
    199 / 90 / 92
    Recruited From: Devonport
    Bio: Was unlucky not to get drafted last year after a promising champ series but broke his leg and no one wanted to take the chance. But thankfully he came back and continued to play great footy. He's a ruckman/forward who's got great skills below his knees, can take a great mark and his tap work is accurate.

    #48 - Geelong
    Brody Mihocek
    191 / 86 / 93
    Recruited From: Burnie
    Bio: One of Tassie's most promising players in this years team and can only keep rising up the rankings after producing plenty of solid performances throughout the year. He's a third tall type player who is an excellent overall marker and skills are very clean. Great athletic and looks very fit after pulling a couple of good draft combine scores.



    ROUND THREE


    #49 - Western Bulldogs
    Max Duffy
    188 / 75 / 93
    Recruited From: East Fremantle
    Bio: Very quick forward with plenty of X factor. He has an amazing footy brain, reads the ball perfectly in the air and on the deck, great decision marker and super vision. His ability to use his pace to escape from a stoppage and get a shot on goals i extremely impressive and will definitely be looked at by a few clubs.


    #50 - Collingwood
    Lachlan Danglish
    185 / 77 / 93
    Recruited From: North Ballarat Rebels
    Bio: Great outside runner who uses his speed to his advantage and can break the lines. He's one of the fastest players in this draft only just behind Saad. His footskills are also a real weapon, he's a monster kick and can hit long targets.


    #51 - Port Adelaide
    Fletcher Roberts
    197 / 84 / 93
    Recruited From: Sandringham Dragons
    Bio: Peaked at the right time and looks set to be drafted. A very talented key forward who can play in the ruck. He's a smart player, uses his body well and skills are good. Re ruck he's an extremely solid 2nd ruck option who's tap work is only improving and his competitive nature is first class.

    #52 - Melbourne
    Clay Smith
    180 / 78 / 93
    Recruited From: Gippsland Power
    Bio: Small inside midfielder who loves the inside stuff. Contestant possessions, clearances, attacking the ball, tackles and breaking tackles are features of his game while his endurance, agility and kicking are also solid without been spectacular. If did manage to hit the scoreboard a few times in the champ series which is a big plus for him and the recruiters.

    #53 - Hawthorn
    Lee Spurr
    183 / 80 / 87
    Recruited From: Central District
    Bio: Versatile player who is capable of playing anywhere across the ground. He's a high flying player who you can never allow to give space in a contestant because he can fly over all of them and take a massive mark. Great work ethic and rate while his skills are precise. Really starting to find his feet as a footballer and should be given a chance.


    #54 - Melbourne
    Jack Newnes
    184 / 73 / 93
    Recruited From: Northern Knights
    Bio: Tough midfielder who has a very penetrating kick and can find space in small areas. Can get the hard ball, dish it off and can read the play very well. He can play in more than one position which will help his chances of been drafted.


    #55 - Richmond
    Ben Darrou
    190 / 93 / 93
    Recruited From: Sandringham Dragon
    Bio: Really hope he gets drafted because i love how he plays. He's a tackling machine who's got the foot skills and vision to become a very dangerous player. He loves dancing around players, does the 1%ers nicely and always seems to have that extra second before releasing the ball. His size will also help his case because for such a height and weight he's very athletic and agile.


    #56 - Greater Western Sydney
    Jordan Kelly
    191 / 81 / 93
    Recruited From: Dandenong Stingrays
    Bio: Really rate him but hasn't performed to his best this year. Undersized key defender who has taken some big scalps this season. His skill level is very good likewise agility to expect him to start of his career as a half back flanker.

    #57 - Western Bulldogs
    Matthew Jacquier
    188 / 80 / 93
    Recruited From: Woodville West Torrens
    Bio: Medium type leading forward who has plenty of tricks in the bag. Great marker, skills are amazing due to his great vision, good agility and his goal sense is too good. He loves taking the opposition on and trying to trick them which is great to watch.


    #58 - Fremantle
    Bradley Hill
    180 / 60 / 93
    Recruited From: West Perth
    Bio: Brother of Stephen and you could tell. Both build pretty similar and both blessed with amazing athletic attributes. He broke the beep test record (16.1), ran 3kms under 10mins and was tested very well in both the sprint tests. When you combine all these features you could end up with a really special player. He isn't as talented footy wise as Stephen so i'd say he's more of a project player.

    #59 - Essendon
    Marley Williams
    181 / 85 / 93
    Recruited From: Claremont
    Bio: Strongly build player who lets everyone know. He has plenty of energy and uses it by tackling and chasing his opponents. His skills are also super damaging, he's capable of kicking 50+ meter kicks onto a forwards chest and when you combine that with his off ball assets you get a very solid player.


    #60 - St Kilda
    Luke Wilson
    178 / 63 / 93
    Recruited From: Port Magpies
    Bio: Real quick outside midfielder who's got great endurance and loves to break the lines using his speed. He was selected in the SA squad for the U/18 Championships but didn't play a game, real flashy player with X-factor about him but he can go missing at times. He's just skin and bone at the moment too.

    #61 - Sydney Swans
    Jordan Staley
    195 / 90 / 93
    Recruited From: Gippsland Power
    Bio: A monster kick and more importantly a very accurate kick. He's able to play as a strong leading CHF and can take a ripper mark, attacks the ball with his 2nd and 3rd efforts and does have footy smarts. He's also able to play in the ruck and compete well.

    #62 - Carlton
    Dylan Buckley F/S
    183 / 69 / 93
    Recruited From: Northern Knights
    Bio: A lot of hype for this kid you'd think he has a number one draft pick. Dylan is very talented but has been pretty disappointing considering how much talent and X factor he possess. He's very skinny but his kicking is laser like and can kick on both sides and is extremely quick. It'll be a while before he plays senior footy due to his weight so he's more of a project player. If he can get everything right expect a very damaging midfielder/half back player.


    #63 - West Coast
    Haiden Schlothe
    179 / 72 / 93
    Recruited From: South Fremantle
    Bio: I've only seen small bits of him but he was really impressed me and could become monster value for anyone who uses a late pick for him. Super dangerous forward who you cannot give any space to. Very smart forward, knows where the footy is going and is deadly at goal no matter where he's kicking it from.

    #64 - Adelaide
    Lachie Neale
    177 / 73 / 93
    Recruited From: Glenelg
    Bio: Outside midfielder who is only getting better game by game. His workrate is super and allows him to rack up plenty of the ball and but the downside is he can end up thinking too much and kick to straight to the opposition. Loves to be involved in everything, tackles well, good vision, kicking is good without been amazing.

    #65 - Collingwood
    Jarrod Witts NSW/ACT scholarship program
    209 / 113 / 92
    Recruited from: Sydney Uni
    Bio: He's a beast. Late starter but is definitely starting to learn the game and his development over the past 12 months has been massive. His tap work is impressive while skills are also good and improving which is a big plus. He loves to crash into packs and make himself look noticed to the other teams as a big threat. Was NSW's best player in the champs which will be a big confidence booster for him.


    #66 - Geelong
    Jed Bews F/S
    186 / 78 / 93
    Recruited From: Geelong Falcons
    Bio: Jed had a very promising and solid season in the TAC cup without many people noticing. The rebounding defender has a very good kick on him, uses it brilliantly well running out of defense and is very versatile. He's tipped to be the replacement for Corey Enright so definitely no big shoes to fill in there.

    Good stuff Axel, I'm sure Port would be over the moon if Chad Wingard managed to drop to #6 since he has been talked up as a top 4 pick.

    Re: Axel's 2011 Phantom Draft

    Good stuff Axel. A question on Coniglio, you've got him listed as 183cm, 70kgs. That's very skinny in AFL terms, do you see that being a hindrance in his early years, espeically given he plays inside as well as outside?

    #21 - Sydney
    Tom Mitchell F/S
    181 / 79 / 93
    Recruited From: Claremont
    Bio: Personally i think Mitchell has a top five pick so Sydney definitely did hit the jackpot here. He's able to play as an inside or outside player and take the game away from the opposition. Elite skills, great endurance, strong around the hips and his awareness around packs is special. He was injured for most of this year but dominated in the one WAFL game he played and the last two rounds of the champs for WA.


    Great work Axel, keep it up mate!

    Re: Axel's 2011 Phantom Draft

    Great work @Axel. Taylor Adams sliding but thats okay hopefully the Hawks don't get him Some are saying he is Bartel like.

    #18 - North Melbourne
    Sam Docherty
    183 / 83 / 93
    Recruited From: Gippsland Power
    Bio: North have a pretty stable team but i've always thought he lacked that super quick half back flanker. Sam is the best in the business, he's one of the fastest players in the draft and racks up plenty of rebounds out of defense. His defensive work is very solid but the thing recruiters will love about him is his kicking under pressure, he's already one of the best kicks in the draft and under pressure he's extremely clam and collected.
    Sounds like a good get for a young player in defense.

    Re: Axel's 2011 Phantom Draft

    Saying a kid is Bartel-like is a huge rap, hopefully he is that good and he slides to the Hawks! Well, thats if we have a first rounder this year...

    Great work Axel, looking forward to seeing how this adjusts over time.

    When i researched his info i got a few different numbers a couple said 70kg so went with that. There's another saying 76kg. But i really don't see this as a problem for him, he's more of a outside player but like Wingard (who's much skinner than him) they attack the ball brilliantly and can win it. I think he'll play about 15-18 games next year. GC were lucky they got two pre seasons into Swallow which is why he got through the whole season (not including injuries of course).

    He got a serious concussion against Vic Country and was out of action for more than a month and after his form was on the down, at that time Stevens (crows) retired from a similar incident and the AFL/clubs are very careful on this now, this isn't the first time he's been injured from a concussion and clubs will know that due to him attacking the ball the way he does. Saying that he's amazingly talented and Emma said he could turn out to be the best player in the draft.

    Really hard to tell where Adams will go. He could go to Melbourne at 12 and could be a perfect fit but imo Smith got the nod due to his goal kicking ability. Comparing him to Bartel is a good call imo, both play very similar. His range would be 7-25.


    Sounds like a good get for a young player in defense.
    North will love him. I wanted to pick Ellis as more of a shut down player but i think Docherty will end up been the better play. Great speed and a super kick to provide drive out of your defense.

    What is everyones thoughts on Alex Forster (defender) some say he could go top 10 he is a kid from WA I am pretty sure - hasn't made your top 25 @Axel.

    Agreed mate. Wingard will be a gun. Hard to see him not being top 5 at least but he would be a sneaky chance to get to Port, and if that happened they would be rapt.

    Alex is from SA and had a super champ series and is definitely rising up the rankings but imo he's still behind a few hbf in the draft. A few reports say Richmond a very interested with their first rounder but there's much more talent available. He's in my top 35 though.

    If he gets taken at pick 5 they will be kicking themselves for winning that last game.
