Position Comment
77 Collingwood Trent Stubbs

186.2

77.2

Forward Medium forward who has been tied to Hawthorn as a NSW scholarship player. Toured South Africa with the AIS-AFL Academy team and has attracted plenty of attention from recruiting scouts who hope to lure him away from the Hawks.
78 West Coast Eagles Lewis Stevenson

189

90

Midfielder The highly-skilled youngster took big steps in his fourth year on the rookie list, playing 10 games across half-back and utilising his penetrating and accurate kick. Benefited from significant size gains.
79 Richmond Pass
80 Essendon Michael Ross
81 Melbourne Jordie McKenzie

186

79

Midfielder Was promoted off the rookie list and made an impact right from round one. Consolidated himself in the senior side. Ranked fifth overall in the AFL for tackles per game and looks set to be the direct replacement for McDonald.
82 Adelaide Ricky Henderson

190

87

Forward The basketball convert was the surprise packet of 2010, playing 12 games and kicking 13 goals in just his second season at the club.
83 Port Adelaide Danny Meyer

183

80

Midfielder A class above the SANFL competition but yet to prove himself at AFL level in two years on the Power’s rookie list. Played six games in the latter half of the season.
84 West Coast Eagles Callum Wilson

191

94

Forward Booted 43 goals for South Fremantle before earning three AFL games late in the season. Kicked four goals against North Melbourne in an impressive performance, but yet to find consistency at either level.
85 Carlton Jeff Garlett

180

74

Forward Rewarded for an excellent season with a two-year contract and a NAB Rising Star nomination. Hit the scoreboard regularly, with his six-goal effort against the Bombers in round 19 a highlight.
86 Hawthorn Pass
87 Fremantle Michael Barlow

174

77

Midfielder Was among the Brownlow Medal fancies after a stunning start to his AFL career. Collected more possessions in his first 12 games (337) than anyone before him, but a broken leg in round 14 ended the midfielder’s season.
88 Western Bulldogs Zephaniah Skinner
89 Western Bulldogs Tom Hill
90 St Kilda Ryan Gamble

184

85

Forward Is best known as a forward but spent most of his final year on Geelong’s list playing down back in the VFL and did well. Was a victim of the Cats’ enormous depth over the past five years and managed just 24 senior games.
91 Collingwood Jarryd Blair

174

77

Midfielder The midfielder forced his way in and wouldn’t be denied, his run and ball use ensuring bigger-name players were kept out and he earned a premiership medallion. Made men the world over feel better in proving that size doesn’t matter.
