2021 NAB AFL Draft: Gold Coast Suns

5. Mac Andrew

Dandenong Stingrays, NAB League / Berwick FC / St. Joseph’s Ferntree Gully

State: Victoria (Country)

Height: 200cm

Weight: 70kg

Date of Birth: 12/04/03

Cal Twomey's Phantom Draft Prediction: 5

Emerging tall forward/ruckman who showed sparkling form at the start of the year with his overhead marking, natural leap, agility and speed. His standout features propelled him into the Australian under-18s team for its NAB AFL Academy match against Geelong’s VFL team in April where he was lively. Born in Egypt to Sudanese parents, he is part of Melbourne’s Next Generation Academy, noting the Demons can only match any bid for him after selection 20 with alterations made to the bidding system for the NAB AFL 2021 Draft in November. Looked highly promising with his aerial ability and mobility for Victoria Country in the AFL Challenge match against Victoria Metro, and averaged 12.7 disposals, 2.7 marks and 12.7 hitouts in six matches for the Dandenong Stingrays this year to claim NAB League Team of the Year honours.

63. Charlie Constable 

Geelong/Sandringham Dragons/East Sandringham/Haileybury College/Old Haileybury

State: Victoria (Metro)

Height: 192cm

Weight: 86kg

Date of Birth: 18/05/99

A strong-bodied, dependable midfielder who was unable to consistently hold a spot in Geelong's experienced engine room and was delisted to allow him to explore his options as a free agent. Constable played 12 games over three seasons at the Cats, stymied in part by a lack of VFL footy due to COVID-19, particularly in 2020. He finished third in the club's VFL best and fairest count this year. Constable is a reliable ball-winner and a strong tackler, who was originally taken with pick No.36 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.
