Glenelg, SANFL / Marion FC

State: South Australia

Height: 187cm

Weight: 71kg

Date of Birth: 22/02/03

Cal Twomey's Phantom Draft Prediction: 11

Medium midfielder who has had an outstanding development season which included impressing at representative and club levels, culminating with a premiership at reserves level with Glenelg after playing four matches in their League team. A playmaker on the wing, he is both poised and composed with the ball in hand and uses his step through traffic and deft foot skills to create for his team and can take a one-on-one mark with his natural spring. Was one of his state's eye-catching performers at Under-19s level this year, being one of its best with a classy display against Western Australia in August. Played predominately at reserves level as he matures physically, he averaged 15.5 disposals in 13 matches. Son of former Saint Terry Milera and nephew of Essendon and Port Adelaide champion Gavin Wanganeen.


33. Mitchito Owens

Sandringham Dragons, NAB League / Beaumaris FC / Mentone Grammar

State: Victoria (Metro)

Height: 190cm

Weight: 85kg

Date of Birth: 24/09/03

Cal Twomey's Phantom Draft Prediction: 29

Medium forward who grabbed his chance when he received a last-minute call-up to the Victoria Metro Under-19s team for its NAB AFL Challenge match against Victoria Country, gathering 29 possessions, seven marks and kicking a goal to be one of his side's best. Can also play inside midfield and use his height at stoppages to great effect after growing over 10cm in the past 12 months. A strong overhead mark as well, he has continued his impressive season with the Dragons averaging 18.6 disposals in five matches.

Sandringham Dragons, NAB League / Beaumaris FC / Haileybury College

State: Victoria (Metro)

Height: 185cm

Weight: 85kg

Date of Birth: 16/05/03

Explosive medium midfielder who is a contested ball winner with the ability to find space in heavy traffic with his agility. Also a dangerous player when he pushes forward, he has overcome an ACL injury two years ago to play some exciting football at college and club level this year. Averaged 15.8 disposals for the Dragons in four NAB League games and showed a strong indication of his potential for Victoria Metro in AFL Challenge against Victoria Country, being among the best players. Eligible for St Kilda under Next Generation Academy and they can match any bid from selection 21 onwards. An injured back ruled him out of Draft Combine testing at year's end.

51. Oscar Adams 

Glenelg, SANFL / South Gambier FC-Mount Gambier

State: South Australia

Height: 197cm

Weight: 85kg

Date of Birth: 23/07/03

Durable tall defender who reads to play very well to intercept mark and is both competitive and aggressive. Needs to add further strength to his frame but is capable of a turn in the ruck, like Mark Blicavs, using his athleticism and versatility to his advantage. Showed distinct potential as key defender in NAB AFL U19 Challenge matches playing all four of South Australia’s matches, impressing against Western Australia with four marks and 16 disposals in game one and finished the series being his state’s best player in the final game against the same opposition with six marks and 12 disposals. Played under-18s with Glenelg this year and continues to improve, averaging 13.7 disposals and 4.8 marks in his 12 matches. Comes from a very sporting family with both parents having played state level basketball.
