2021 NAB AFL Draft: Port Adelaide

12. Joshua Sinn 

Sandringham Dragons, NAB League / Old Xavierians

State: Victoria Metro

Height: 186cm

Weight: 78kg

Date of Birth: 07/01/03

Cal Twomey's Phantom Draft Prediction: 14

Dashing defender who breaks the lines with his acceleration and penetrating left foot. Had an injury-interrupted year, missing the Australian AFL Academy game with a hamstring injury before impressing for Victoria Metro in its match against Victoria Country but suffered an ankle injury late in the match. An All-Australian at under-16s level in 2019, he played five matches with the Dragons this year, averaging 17.6 disposals, and also making the NAB League’s Team of the Year. Recorded a sharp 2.98 seconds for 20 metres at Victorian NAB League testing earlier in the year, then a solid 6:41 in the 2km time trial.

55. Hugh Jackson

North Adelaide, SANFL/Crystal Brook FC

State: South Australia

Height: 182cm

Weight: 72kg

Date of Birth: 03/05/03

Classy midfielder capable of playing on the inside or outside using his elite kicking on his preferred left side together with his clean hands and footy smarts. He draws comparisons to GWS Giant star Josh Kelly. Has had an outstanding year at under-18s level, averaging 29.3 disposals at 70 per cent efficiency and 4.8 clearances with 3.4 tackles at club level in 16 games. He also had 20 possessions against Western Australia at state under-19 level for South Australia in August. A hip injury stopped him from testing at the NAB AFL Draft Combine in South Australia.

56. Dante Visentini

Sandringham Dragons, NAB League

State: Victoria (Metro)

Height: 201cm

Weight: 88kg

Date of Birth: 13/02/03

Imposing athletic tall forward whose overhead marking is his competitive advantage, along with his height. Presents well as a target and provides that vital contest which brings the ball to ground if he doesn’t mark, providing his team with opportunities. Very useful option also in the ruck, a role he played this year for both Victoria Metro at under-19s level (11 disposals and 10 hitouts) as well as for the Sandringham Dragons in six matches, averaging 10.3 disposals, 2.8 marks and 8.5 hitouts.

60. Jase Burgoyne 

Woodville-West Torrens, SANFL

State: South Australia

Height: 186cm

Weight: 65kg

Date of Birth: 15/07/03

Dazzling running defender who can also bring his talents into the midfield and have an impact for his team. His acceleration from stoppages and neat side step are complemented by his distribution by hand and foot making him a thrilling prospect. Caught the eye when playing for the Australian NAB AFL Academy team in April as well as his two performances for South Australia against Western Australia at under-19s level where he averaged 21 disposals to be one of his team’s best. Son of Port Adelaide great Peter Burgoyne, Jase is eligible to join the Power as a father-son selection and was permitted this season to play three games at senior level for Port Magpies where he averaged 15.7 disposals.
