ROUND ONE 1 - CARLTON - BRYCE GIBBS
Glenelg, 15 March 1989, 187.4cm, 77.6kg
In a draft that has been rated by some AFL recruiters as one of the most difficult to predict - due to the outstanding talent pool on offer - one selection that seems certain is the recruitment of Bryce Gibbs to Carlton with the first pick in the 2006 NAB AFL Draft.
The dynamic midfielder is set to join the Blues, having originally been tied to Adelaide via the father/son rule. His father Ross was a champion SANFL player, notching up 253 matches with Glenelg. Yet a realignment of the father/son rules forced Gibbs onto the open market, much to the chagrin of the Crows, but to the delight of Carlton, as he looms as a 10-year and 200-game player for the Blues. And the impressive 17-year-old has already debunked the 'go-home' factor.
Towering East Perth ruckman Matthew Leuenberger looms as the only other player the Blues would consider with their first pick.
Highlights/achievements: Poised, well balanced and skilled playmaker who had outstanding year at Glenelg and with SA U18 team, winning All-Australian honours. Had excellent game against Vic Metro in NAB AFL U18 Championships, gaining 34 possessions, nine loose ball gets and nine clearances. Finished in top three in Glenelg Best and Fairest with his round 17 match against Port Adelaide outstanding, finishing with 33 possessions and kicking six goals. AIS/AFL Academy Graduate. From Plympton F.C.
2 - ESSENDON - SCOTT GUMBLETON
Peel Thunder, 3 August 1988, 197.1cm, 92.8kg
Like a high stakes poker game - or perhaps even a scene from the forthcoming James Bond epic Casino Royale - the cards have been kept extremely close to the Essendon chest and this selection has more intrigue than any in this year's draft. The result of this selection will ultimately shape the order of the draft - make no mistake about that.
Assuming Carlton selects Gibbs, the second pick will come from Leuenberger, Gippsland's Lachlan Hansen or Peel's Scott Gumbleton. And there are compelling reasons why it could be any one of these three exceptional talents. Leuenberger is regarded as a once-in-a-generation ruckman and someone that could match it with Dean Cox or Aaron Sandilands. A player of this calibre is hot property and it is believed wily super-coach Kevin Sheedy is in favour of luring Leuenberger east. But does Essendon need another ruckman? With time still firmly on David Hille's side and youngsters Jason Laycock and Paddy Ryder waiting in the wings - they also have Lachlan McKinnon as a rookie ruckman - it adds to the fascination of this selection. This is why the Bombers may opt for Lachlan Hansen or Scott Gumbleton. Both are outstanding key position players at either end of the field and little separates them. But there is a school of thought that Gumbleton's football class may win out. The Dons may back their rucks in and think about looking at their key posts - particularly with the likes of Dustin Fletcher getting closer towards the end of a magnificent career - and that's where Gumbleton comes into their thinking. Either way, the Bombers are going to jag a beauty whether it be Gumbleton, Hansen or Leuenberger.
It will be a fascinating call.
Highlights/achievements: Strong marking, courageous and agile tall who can play either end. All-Australian at U18 level this year after representing WA in 2005 and 2006. Played 15 games at senior level for Peel this year with his contested marking a feature. His beep test of 14.2 showed his outstanding endurance at the NAB AFL Draft Camp this year. AIS/AFL Academy Graduate.
3 - KANGAROOS - LACHLAN HANSEN
Gippsland Power, 17 August 1988, 196.7cm, 90.1kg
Again, the Kangaroos cannot lose with their first selection, as they will either gain Hansen or Gumbleton - with Leuenberger also coming into calculations. But the Roos have been eyeing off both Hansen and Gumbleton, hoping to snare a key position player that will spend the next decade in the royal blue and white.
Kangaroos coach Dean Laidley is believed to be a massive fan of the boy from Nar Nar Goon and should Gibbs and Gumbleton be taken, expect recruiting manager Neville Stibbard to read Hansen's name out. Should the Dons take Leuenberger and the Roos claim Gumbleton, then Hansen could be headed for the Lions or Power.
Highlights/achievements: Agile and powerful player who can play either end. Strong overhead and aggressive in the contest. At TAC Cup level this year averaged 19 possessions and nine marks in his 13 matches, also kicking 16 goals. All-Australian at U18 level this year. AIS/AFL Academy Graduate. 20m Sprint (3.03sec), beep test (14.3) and 10.43sec three-km were highlights of testing undertaken at the NAB AFL Draft Camp. From Nar Nar Goon F.C.
4 - BRISBANE LIONS - JOEL SELWOOD
Bendigo Pioneers, 26 May 1988, 182.4cm, 80.2kg
The Lions are believed to be deciding between two players - Bendigo's Joel Selwood and Tassie Devils' forward Mitchell Thorp - with both staking strong claims for a berth in the sunshine state. Although a knee injury plagued him in 2006, Selwood is enormously rated by AFL recruiters. He is regarded as one of the premier midfielders in the draft, while his character and leadership qualities have also been highly commended.
He has been touted as a future AFL captain by one recruiting manager. For these reasons, the Lions appear to have been sold on Selwood, particularly now that one of the all-time greats - one M.Voss has now retired after a monumental career with the Lions.
Thorp is a powerhouse key forward and will be extremely tempting for the club, but expect the third Selwood - the younger brother of twins Adam (West Coast) and Troy (Brisbane Lions) - to join the AFL ranks with the Lions.
Home grown talent - Morningside's David Armitage - cannot be ruled out either at No.4 and will firmly be in the Lions' thoughts.
Highlights/achievements: Strong at the ball and skilful midfielder/defender who won All-Australian honours in 2005. Barassi Medallist versus Ireland last year at U17 level. Missed most of 2006 recovering from injury, playing only three games. Impressive leader at youth level. AIS/AFL Academy Graduate. From Sandhurst F.C.
5 - PORT ADELAIDE - MATTHEW LEUENBERGER
East Perth, 7 June 1988, 203.2cm, 92.9kg
A tantalising prospect for the clubs involved in the top five selections - Carlton, Essendon, Kangaroos, Brisbane Lions and Port Adelaide - Leuenberger could easily be the first player selected in the draft, although he is unlikely to slip past number eight at Collingwood. Although he is projected to be a Dean Cox-type, the football public must be patient with this outstanding young talent. He will need time, like most emerging ruckmen, but the rewards could be enormous.
The fascinating aspect of Leuenberger's standing in this draft is that he could land at a club that is actually not short on ruckmen - Port Adelaide. With Carlton appearing to have Gibbs already decked out in navy blue; Gumbleton and Hansen seen as key position answers for Essendon and the Kangaroos and the Lions going OK in the ruck department (Jamie Charman, Cameron Wood and Beau McDonald), Leuenberger could - incredibly - slip to five or six at Port Adelaide or Hawthorn respectively.
The Power already has ruckmen Brendon Lade, Dean Brogan, Fabian Deluca, Hugh Minson and Jonathan Giles on its list, but with Lade heading towards the twilight of his career, Port Adelaide can afford to groom Leuenberger via the SANFL without throwing him to the wolves. Strategically, the Power can enter upcoming exchange periods knowing it has a plethora of ruck stocks, which could prove a significant bargaining tool.
This makes the prospect of snapping up Leuenberger a very sound - and exciting - one for Port Adelaide. Having said that, Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams is an unashamed fan of South Fremantle excitement machine Leroy Jetta and he remains a genuine prospect at number five - and a potential replacement for Gavin Wanganeen - while home-grown talent James Sellar will also be considered strongly at this position.
Geelong Falcons midfielder Travis Boak is also an outside chance.
Highlights/achievements: Exciting prospect with the height, agility and mobility to play on ball. Excels with his work at stoppages and can push forward and kick goals. Debuted in the WAFL this year playing six matches, and won All-Australian U18 honours. AIS/AFL Academy graduate. Tallest player attending the NAB AFL Draft Camp measuring in at 203.2cm. Showed fantastic speed for such a tall player with a 20m sprint time of 3.02sec.
6 - HAWTHORN - JAMES SELLAR
Glenelg, 24 March 1989, 195cm, 90.1kg
Seriously considered a number one draft selection throughout the past year, Sellar will be snapped up by the Hawks, if Gibbs, Gumbleton, Hansen, Selwood and Leuenberger provide the nucleus of the 'top five' picks. And Hawthorn will be delighted if it can land Sellar with its opening selection, should that scenario pan out. But if Sellar is snapped up with Port Adelaide's first pick - just one before the Hawks - expect Leuenberger to be in Hawthorn's mix, while Thorp, Selwood and Boak are also part of the brown and gold's thinking. Interestingly, should the Hawks select an alternate to Sellar, there is some chance that the South Australian could slip as far as No.14, with the way the cards are falling. If that occurs, there will be no doubt Adelaide will pounce on the local lad with its first choice.
Highlights/achievements: Ruckman or key forward with a terrific vertical leap he uses to his advantage at stoppages and marking contests. Sheehan medal in 2005 NAB AFL U16 national championships. Made his senior debut with Glenelg this year playing eight games. His standing vertical jump and agility were impressive at the 2006 NAB AFL Draft Camp. Graduate of the AIS/AFL Academy.
7 - GEELONG - TRAVIS BOAK
Geelong Falcons, 1 August 1988, 183.3cm, 76.4kg
Make no mistake Boak will be a top 10 draftee. Although his status has not been as public as his other 'high draftee' contemporaries, Boak is rated enormously among the AFL recruiting fraternity and will definitely feature in the top 10. The Cats are a huge rap for the 'local' - he hails from Torquay - and they are more than likely to snap him up. There is some chance Boak could don the Power colours or Hawthorn stripes, while Thorp, Selwood and Jetta are also genuine contenders for the Cats. And what would if Leuenberger is still in the mix? It surely couldn't happen, but that throws another intriguing chapter to this almighty draft puzzle.
Highlights/achievements: Classy midfielder with good speed and ball winning ability. Well balanced player with ability to get through traffic. Vic Country representative and AIS/AFL Academy graduate. A 2.96sec 20m sprint time at the NAB AFL Draft Camp saw Boak ranked in the top 15 per cent of players tested. From Torquay F.C.
8 - COLLINGWOOD - JACK RIEWOLDT
Tassie Mariners, 31 October 1988, 192.3cm, 85.4kg
Another draft 'sub-plot' thickens with Collingwood an intriguing player with two selections inside its top 10. It is understood both the Magpies and Saints are eager to secure the cousin of St Kilda superstar Nick, but if the Pies want him, they must nab him with this selection otherwise they run the risk of the Saints snapping him up with their next pick. But will the Pies consider Thorp, a ruckman (more on that at No.10) or a midfielder with this pick? It genuinely could be a toss up for the Pies, between Riewoldt and Thorp, if they are both available at this choice. The fact that St Kilda is the meat in the Collingwood sandwich makes it an appetising notion. There is no way Leuenberger would get past the Magpies, while if Geelong opted for an alternate to Boak, then the Pies would not let the sleek midfielder pass by either.
Highlights/achievements: Goal-kicking forward who is extremely strong overhead. Impressive at VFL level in eight games for Tasmanian Devils including outstanding game versus Bendigo Bombers where he took 13 marks and kicked four goals. From Clarence F.C.
9 - ST KILDA - MITCHELL THORP
Tassie Devils, 25 December 1988, 194.1cm, 86.4kg
So where does Thorp stand in this draft? He is widely regarded as a top six selection, but invariably in this draft meeting, even players of that ilk can slide - for a number of reasons. He could be snapped up as early as No.4 to the Brisbane Lions, yet he it would be a massive surprise if he lasted any longer than No.12 at Melbourne. The Saints will be waiting to see which player slides through - they will snap up the best available - and expect recruiting manager John Beveridge to do just that with his club's first pick. The Saints will also be eagerly awaiting the outcome of Collingwood's opening selection at No.8 - with Riewoldt strongly linked to both the Magpies and Saints. St Kilda would be over the moon to recruit Riewoldt to play with his brilliant cousin. Should Riewoldt and Thorp be out of the equation, as well as a 'slider', expect the Saints to select one of North Ballarat's Nathan Brown (key forward), Armitage (midfielder) and Southport's Brent Renouf (ruckman).
Highlights/achievements: Strong marking and mobile forward/defender who can play on ball. Showed great promise for Tasmania in VFL playing 10 games and also won All-Australian honours at U18 level. AIS/AFL Academy Graduate. From the Northern Bombers in Tasmania.
10 - COLLINGWOOD - SHAUN HAMPSON
Mt Gravatt, 21 March 1988, 200.8cm, 93.1kg
Could Hampson be the first bolter of this year's draft? It's not out of the question with Collingwood's second selection. There are few ruckman in this year's meeting and height will be a priority for a number of clubs early in the draft - especially Collingwood.
The Pies opted for midfielders early in last year's meeting (think Dale Thomas, Scott Pendlebury and Danny Stanley) while the reverse will very much be the order in 2006. Already the Pies have traded Chris Tarrant to Fremantle and delisted talls Cameron Cloke, David Fanning, Brent Hall and Tristen Walker during the off-season, so replenishing the tall timber will be a major focus. With Fraser and the talented-yet-injury riddled Guy Richards the club's only rucks, the Pies will be eager to secure an emerging ruckman - and may even look for another with experience down the draft or in the pre-season meeting in December. This is where Hampson comes into play. The Pies may look to Renouf with this selection or even Southport's Kurt Tippett (at the moment a 200cm forward), while Oakleigh's Todd Goldstein is also a genuine outsider, but it understood Hampson is the highest rated ruckman in the Pies' eyes and he cannot be discounted. Collingwood rate him enormously, but the indications are that it will not be able to claim him at No.28 - the club's next selection. Hampson is now believed to be a top 20 selection and the fact that there are few genuine ruckman in this meeting improves his standing. His potential is enormous and that's what has attracted Collingwood's interest.
If the Pies opt for a midfielder, Armitage and Jetta will be right in the mix, while Thorp, Riewoldt, Nathan Brown and Murray's Ben Reid also fit into the picture here.
Highlights/achievements: Developing young ruckman with only two years experience in the game switching from soccer. Quick and agile, played for QLD at U18 level this year. Recorded 3.00sec for 20m at NAB AFL Draft Camp, outstanding for his size, coupled with an 86cm vertical leap, placing him in the top five per cent of players tested.
11 - WESTERN BULLDOGS - LEROY JETTA
South Fremantle, 6 July 1988, 177.2cm, 75.5cm
The excitement machine could land as early as No.5 to Port Adelaide - Power coach Mark Williams is a huge admirer - but equally eager to acquire his services are the Western Bulldogs. In fact, Jetta has been likened to new Bulldog and Lion great Jason Akermanis. He would be another super addition to the already speed-driven Dogs - and don't the red, white and blue know it. Jetta is widely regarded as a first-round draftee and it's difficult to see him sliding any further than No.16. Geelong and Collingwood will also consider Jetta earlier, but barring any major sliders, the Dogs will barking with delight should they claim the dynamo. Thorp, Renouf, Riewoldt and Claremont's Nathan Krakouer will also be in the mix for the Dogs.
Highlights/achievements: Dual All-Australian U18 level who has excellent evasive skills and goal sense. Super quick indigenous graduate of the AIS/AFL Academy, recording 2.97sec for 20m at the NAB AFL Draft Camp. Averaged 24 possessions in the NAB AFL U18 championships this year in a midfield/forward role. Played six games at senior level in the WAFL. From Clontarf College.
12 - MELBOURNE - TOM HISLOP
Tassie Mariners, 7 June 1988, 184.4cm, 85.9kg
Should a 'slider' fall through, Melbourne's first selection could be a fascinating outcome, yet the Demons are believed to be considering hard-at-it Taswegian Tom Hislop and Queenslander Ricky Petterd with its first selection, while key Victorian talls James Frawley and Ben Reid are also in the mix. Krakouer may also be considered with Melbourne's opening choice. Renouf will also be in Melbourne's thoughts. Hislop is likely to be a sought-after prospect from 10 to 15. His hardness and attack on the ball would compliment the likes of recent draftees Brock McLean and Colin Sylvia. Should Hislop pass Melbourne, expect him to figure in Richmond's plans the following pick and also Sydney's at No.15.
Highlights/achievements: Robust and powerful player who is strong overhead and a prolific ball winner. All-Australian at U18 level this year averaging 20 disposals and ranking number one for tackles. Has an excellent speed and endurance combination being sub 3.00sec for 20m and mid level 14 for the Beep Test. AIS/AFL Academy graduate.
13 - RICHMOND - BEN REID
Murray Bushrangers, 29 April 1989, 196.4cm, 82.3kg
There is no doubt Reid could be a top 10 draftee, with Collingwood believed to be interested in him with its two earlier selections, while the Demons will also consider Reid very strongly prior to this pick. Adelaide also comes into the mix at No.14. But Reid's ability to play at either end of the ground will appeal to Richmond immensely, particularly as it lost some height via forward/ruckman Greg Stafford and defender Andrew Kellaway. Selections No.12 (Hislop) and No.13 (Reid) could quite easily be switched. Dandenong's Andrejs Everitt, Frawley and Bendigo's Daniel Connors will also seriously come into Richmond's equation at this selection.
Highlights/achievements: Left footed, versatile player who can go forward or back. Strong overhead and quick, his 2.93sec for 20m was in the top 10 per cent at the NAB AFL Draft Camp, highlighting his terrific speed for his size. Vic Country U18 representative and AIS/AFL Academy graduate. Father Bruce played with both Carlton and Western Bulldogs but not eligible for either under the father/son rule. From Wangaratta Rovers F.C.
14 - ADELAIDE - SHANE EDWARDS
North Adelaide, 25 October 1988, 179.6cm, 68.6kg
Unless Sellar falls through to No.14, expect Adelaide to snap up Edwards with its first selection. The local lad is rated enormously by the Crows and if they don't pounce now, he won't be around by the time their have their second pick at No.32, with Port Adelaide, Richmond and Collingwood just some of the clubs in the mix in the second round. The Crows will also monitor Reid, Petterd and Hislop closely with its first pick, although both players look set to be taken by Melbourne or Richmond at No.12 or No.13 respectively. West Adelaide's Chris Schmidt and North Ballarat's Shaun Grigg are not without a chance at this selection.
Highlights/achievements: Classy, quick midfielder who is smart around goals and evasive. Played 10 games of senior football this year after progressing from the U19's and represented SA at U18 level. Has excellent skills under pressure. Ranked in the top four per cent of participants in the beep test and 3km time trial at the NAB AFL Draft Camp (15.4 beep test/10.00sec 3km). From Golden Grove F.C.
15 - SYDNEY - NATHAN BROWN
North Ballarat Rebels, 17 December 1988, 193.5cm, 87.2kg
Brown looks certain to be taken in the first round of the draft, while he is also a realistic top 10 prospect, with St Kilda and Melbourne right in the mix to claim him at No.9 and No.12 respectively. But the reality of this draft is that not everyone can fit into the top 10 and outstanding talent will fall through - and this is where Brown could fit in. Brown, the twin brother of Mitchell, who is also set to be taken in the draft, has attracted strong interest from Sydney. It is understood the Swans are looking to pluck a tall with their first selection and Brown's ability to play in key defensive and forward posts provides enormous appeal for the Swans. Hislop will also figure prominently, if available, in Sydney's plans, as he is viewed as an ideal replacement for the iconic Brett Kirk, when he retires. Rucks Renouf, Hampson and Southport's Kurt Tippett (a potential ruckman, although more of a forward at the moment) cannot be ruled out either at No.16 and could new Swan Peter 'Spida' Everitt also have his younger brother join him in the harbour city? It's certainly not out of the question. Speedster Krakouer is also in the mix and keep an eye on Geelong Falcons midfielder Daniel O'Keefe at this selection, as he is also believed to be under serious consideration for the Swans.
Highlights/achievements: Versatile key position player who kicks well on preferred left side. Impressive in NAB AFL U18 Championships at full back winning All-Australian honours. Sprint and repeat sprint ability were highlights at the NAB AFL Draft Camp with 20m sprint time of 2.91sec (top three per cent) and repeat sprint test time of 25.07sec (top eight per cent). From Ballarat F.C.
16 - WEST COAST - JAMES FRAWLEY
North Ballarat Rebels, 20 September 1988, 192.7cm, 81.3kg
Another interesting selection looms at No.16 with West Coast linked to several names including Frawley, the nephew of St Kilda great and former Richmond coach Danny. The Eagles are understood to have likened Frawley to 2006 All-Australian full-back Darren Glass, hence their interest in the talented key defender. Frawley has climbed up the order in recent weeks, with Melbourne, Richmond, Collingwood and Geelong all eager for his services. West Coast must take him now otherwise he is likely to be gone at No.29 - its second selection. The Eagles will also be weighing up weather to take one of three local lads from Claremont - Jarryd Morton, Krakouer and Eric McKenzie. Those three players will also be seriously considered at No.16.
Highlights/achievements: Quick and athletic with good defensive skills and provides run from defence. Victoria Country U18 representative this year. A sub 3sec 20m sprint test (2.98sec) was a highlight of performance at the NAB AFL Draft Camp. From East Ballarat F.C.
PRIORITY ROUND 17 - CARLTON - BRENT RENOUF
Southport, 3 May 1988, 200.3cm, 92.5kg
Rated by many as the second best ruck prospect in the draft behind the highly-talented Leuenberger, Renouf's standing in this draft will be fascinating. He could quite conceivably be selected in the top 10 and land at either Collingwood (No.8 or No.10) or St Kilda (No.9), while landing at the Western Bulldogs (No.11) or Melbourne (No.12) is not out of the question. But what appears a safe bet is that Carlton will take a ruckman at No.17 or No.19 with either Renouf or Hampson likely to join the Blues - as long as they are both available, while Tippett will also be the in the mix. Both Renouf and Hampson look certain to become top 20 selections in this draft. Grigg and Bendigo's Daniel Connors will also be players Carlton will monitor at No.17 and No.19.
Highlights/achievements: Mobile key position player or ruckman who is strong overhead. QLD U18 representative in 2005/2006 and graduate of the AIS/AFL Academy. His 93cm running vertical jump topped the Draft Camp with his 3km endurance test in the top 11 per cent. Topped off a very promising year by playing well in Southport's senior premiership side in AFL Queensland State League.
18 - ESSENDON - DAVID ARMITAGE
Morningside, 16 June 1988, 183.5cm, 80kg
Armitage may seem a surprise at No.18 - in reality he could easily fall in the top 10 at Collingwood (No.8 or No.10) or St Kilda (No.9) - but the reality with this meeting is that players will slip down the order simply due to the talent on offer. He has even been touted at No.4 for the Brisbane Lions. The Queenslander is clearly in the mix to be selected earlier in the draft, but he also looms as a super 'slider'. Essendon is very keen on Armitage and it will be ready to pounce at No.18 - if he remains there. The Bombers will also consider Krakouer and Petterd. He will certainly be an interesting player to follow in this draft.
Highlights/achievements: Left footed ball winner who can play in the midfield or in defence. Had outstanding AFL Queensland year with Morningside winning competition Rising Star Award. All-Australian at U18 level. Has quick hands, great courage and huge engine. AIS/AFL Academy graduate. Recorded the quickest time for the AFL Agility test at the NAB AFL Draft Camp with 7.88sec. A beep test of 14.2 and a three-km time of 10.35sec saw a ranking in the top 15 per cent of players tested. Originally from Mackay in Queensland.
