Boekhorst joined fellow draftees Dillon Viojo-Rainbow (pick No.28), Clem Smith (pick No.60) and Jayden Foster (pick No.63) in front of the cameras on Monday morning.
Viojo-Rainbow (who could usurp Collingwood's Steele Sidebottom for the best surname in the AFL) was drafted after an impressive year at the Western Jets in the TAC Cup.
The 18-year-old is renowned for his elite disposal off half-back and admitted to being "starstruck" when meeting his high-profile teammates.
"You're sort of 'starstruck' when you see Gibbsy, Juddy and Murphy walking around so it hasn't really sunk in yet, but once you get out on the track with all the boys it won't be too bad," Viojo-Rainbow said.

Smith, drafted from Perth in the WAFL, has already been likened to former North Melbourne and Port Adelaide tough nut Byron Pickett.
"I had a look (at Pickett's highlights) on YouTube and there's definitely similarities there," Smith said.
"If they're (opponents) in my path, I don't mind it (cleaning them up)."
Foster missed out on being a father-son pick to the Western Bulldogs, after the Dogs chose Zaine Cordy instead.
Foster, whose father Peter played 163 matches with the Dogs, already has lofty ambitions for next season after booting 49 goals in 16 matches for the Calder Cannons.
"I'm aiming for round one. I know some people might see it as a bit unrealistic, but I'm looking forward to putting some size on in the gym and working hard on the track," Foster said.
"Round one is the goal."
