Potential headline acts in 2021 AFL draft | Mandurah Mail

The most important prospects for the 2021 National Football Association project

Club: South Adelaide / Christies Beach FC. Height: 185 cm. Weight: 81 kg.

A ready-made midfielder who already has two seasons of SANFL football under his belt. He fell out of the ranks of the Panthers this year, scoring three goals out of 24 in their initial final loss. He wins the ball on suspensions, he’s dangerous near goals and looks sure to pick it up North Melbourne with a #1 pick.

Club: Oakley Chargers/Q Rovers. Height: 182 cm. Weight: 73 kg.

The smooth-moving midfielder is set to attract an early bidder in the first few picks but heads to the draft knowing the bid will be matched by Collingwood, who owns the rights to a potential father and son. He reads the game well and has excellent hand and foot skills. Father Peter was a mercurial striker for the Magpies and brother Josh is entering his sixth season with the club.

Club: Oakleigh Chargers / Glen Iris FC / Scotch College. Height: 205 cm. 93 kg

The auction will be up early, like Daicos, but son of former Western Bulldogs star Luke Darcy is headed to Whitten Oval. The ruck-forward is still growing and is able to play multiple positions, including the back key. He reads the ball well on the flight, kicks accurately into the goal and adds 8kg to his tall structure this year while the NAB League games were on hold.

Club: Sandringham Dragons/St Bede’s College. Height: 191 cm. Weight: 86 kg.

The left-footed midfielder wins his ball in the competition and moves well through traffic, but can also play outside where his penetrating kick is in front. He also has strong aerial ability and a good sense of purpose, which makes him a tough match. Similar to Western Bulldogs star Marcus Bontempelli and has attracted a lot of interest from clubs.

Club: Dandenong Stingrays / Berwick FC / St Joseph’s Ferntree Gully. Height: 201 cm. Weight: 74 kg.

The best prospects for Next Generation Academy are linked to Melbourne, but are unlikely to make it to prime ministers due to a new rule that prevents clubs from matching bids for Academy players within the top 20 selection. The athletic attacking striker has powerful hands and a massive leap to bring unparalleled speed and agility to a player of his size.

Club: East Perth / Busselton. Height: 196 cm. Weight: 83 kg.

Arguably the best key forward in the draft. He attracted attention with his accurate goal shot in the WAFL Colts competition, starting 51.14 from 14 games this year. The left end has good hands, is the sign of a strong pack and is fast in the lead.

Club: Murray Bushrangers / Shepparton Swans / Caulfield Grammar. Height: 180 cm. Weight: 78 kg.

A young football star who got a scholarship with Melbourne City but chose the oval and set his sights on the path of the NFL. The junior striker can also play across the midfield but is efficient around goals, having starred at the junior level. It stands out by its competitive nature.
