Fremantle's first pick #2

ANDREW BRAYSHAW

POS: Midfielder 
Ht 183cm Wt 80kg DOB 8/11/1999
From Sandringham Dragons/Vic Metro

It's been a sharp rise for Brayshaw, whose back end of the season and then terrific showing at the Combine thrust him right up the draft board. The midfielder ticks so many boxes – he's hard at the contest, able to spread away with the ball, he spots up targets nicely by foot, he floats forward to kick goals and he's considered a future leader. The younger brother of Melbourne's Angus, Brayshaw is articulate, considered and switched on for what lays ahead in his AFL career.

Fremantle Pick #5

ADAM CERRA

POS: Midfielder 
Ht 186cm Wt 85kg DOB 7/10/1999 
From Eastern Ranges/Vic Metro

The class and poise that Cerra possesses will appeal to clubs at the top of the draft order, with the Eastern Ranges teenager one of the better ball users in the pool. Cerra hasn't played as much footy over the past two years that he would have liked but when he was out there he showed his skills. He's also very tough. Don't let the well-spoken, controlled and calm demeanour fool you – he's a hard and determined competitor when the ball is up for grabs.

Adam Cerra tells SEN he is "stoked" to go to Fremantle with close mate Andrew Brayshaw.

Pick #59

Mitchell Crowden

MITCH Crowden hears the doubters loud and clear.

“They think I’ve already developed a man’s body, that I’m not particularly quick and that I don’t have as much improvement in me as some other kids,’’ Crowden says about reasons why he was not invited to the AFL Draft Combine.

“Maybe they look at that a bit too much rather than runs on the board.’’

Pick #65

Thomas North

EASTERN Ranges’ midfielder Thomas North’s 43-disposal game on Saturday has earned him AFL Draft Central’s TAC Cup Player of the Week. It is the Ranges’ second consecutive Player of the Week after ruck/forward Sam Hayes received the nod from our team last week.

On Saturday, North amassed a huge 43 disposals at 74.42 per cent efficiency, including 19 kicks and 24 handballs. North also took six marks, had 12 clearances, went inside 50 twice, rebounded four times and finished off with three goals. The balanced midfielder has been building as the season has gone on and his performance on the weekend was his clear best for the year.
