The inside word

One of the more tantalising propositions in this year's draft as a half-forward/midfielder, Lennon gives this draft a dose of excitement. Expected to be a top-10 pick, he marks strongly on the lead and is sharp by foot, but also knows his way around goal, fires bullet passes and backs himself with the ball. He was among the better kicks at the Draft Combine and was a three-way winner of the handball/clean hands test. Over a five-week stretch during the Under-18 Championships with Vic Metro, he averaged 28 disposals a game running through the midfield.
