Jack Redden (Glenelg/SA) - Draft Profile

Height: 188.6cm
Weight: 74.4kg
Style: Inside first dibs midfielder
Preferred foot: Right
Potential: 6.5-8/10


> Very good vision/DM (both by hand and foot) and quick, decent feeds in traffic – calm and composed
> Very clean hands off the deck
> Good ability to get hands free in tackles
> Hard at the footy and good work ethic around the footy
> Strong tackler in close
> Reads the ruckman’s taps very well and has the ability to shark the oppositions
> Solid OH mark – holds ground well, shows good courage - excellent size for a midfielder (high 180s)
> Keeps his passes low trajectory and capaoble kicking both sides of the body


> Can go missing for long periods – despite large engine – doesn’t know where to run? Not match fit?
> Injury prone
> Below average kicking reliability – prone to turning it over when he doesn’t get it right


> Only average pace and agility


I would’ve liked to see more of him in an ideal world as he has some very handy attributes to be a very solid inside midfielder at AFL level, however his weaknesses concern me a fair bit for his position.
