ADELAIDE recruiting manager Hamish Ogilvie has described potential Crows target Fischer McAsey as the "sort of person we want to bring in" ahead of Wednesday night's NAB AFL Draft.
The Crows are tipped to select the 197cm key position prospect with the sixth overall pick, according to AFL.com.au's draft expert Callum Twomey in his Phantom Draft.
While Ogilvie was keeping his cards close to his chest when pressed on who the Crows would take, he said McAsey would be a natural fit if he ended up at West Lakes.
"We're going to have a great player to choose from," Ogilvie told AFL.com.au's Draft Night Countdown on Tuesday.
"He's a fantastic young man, good values, good team-first … the sort of person we want to bring in.
"We're going to have a choice between probably four (players).

"They're all highly credentialed and well deserving of being in that discussion."

The Crows previously held the fourth overall pick in the draft, but traded that to Greater Western Sydney in exchange for pick six and the Giants' first-round selection in 2020.
Ogilvie said the Crows believed one of the four players they had targeted at pick four would still be available at pick six.

He was also bullish on the quality of next year's draft, despite it being compromised with father-son and Next Generation Academy products.
The Crows pulled one of the major surprises at last year's draft when they were involved in a trade on draft night with Carlton, handing over pick 19 (which became Liam Stocker) and their 2019 first-round pick in exchange for the Blues' first-round selection.
They could again be involved in a live trade.
"Three or four days ago I didn't think there was going to be that many (live trades), but some more opportunities have come up in the last two days," he said.
"We had a meeting this morning where Binuk (Crows player analytics expert Binuk Kodituwakku) presented on every club.
"We've had some phone calls about (picks 22 and 23), but it's also not impossible that we take the two picks."

The Crows had a massive list overhaul at the end of last season with several experienced players including Eddie Betts, Josh Jenkins, Alex Keath and Hugh Greenwood leaving the club.
That's led to low expectations surrounding the Crows heading into next year, but Ogilvie believes they'll have a point to prove.
"We reckon it's a lot better than a lot of people say it is, so I can't wait until we start to prove some people wrong during the season," he said.
