Cal Twomey’s draft range: Rookie

Overlooked in last year's NAB AFL Draft, the medium defender made the decision to relocate to South Australia and improve his game in the SANFL. It paid off, producing a consistent season in defence, where his aerial ability stood out. He played 15 games with Glenelg and averaged six marks, taking 24 contested grabs for the seasons. He impressed recruiters with his drive to succeed in 2020, his ability to read the play and his clean hands. The teenager is a former member of the Sydney Swans Academy.
