Sam Shaw (Oakleigh/Vic Metro) – Draft Profile

Height: 191cm

Weight: 80kg

Position: Wing/Utility

Potential: 5-7.5/10

Strengths: Entire athletic package (pace off the mark and over distance, vertical jump, lateral movement), height advantage and strong overhead for a wingman/flanker

Weaknesses: Hardness/physical strength and build, below average running capacity, kicking and DM (kicking can be good to poor, one-sided, capable of decent penetration – lacks composure under pressure)

Other: Reach disadvantage for his height, played 3 U18 championships games for VM averaging 12.7Dpg and 1.7Mpg, Averaged 20Dpg, 4Mpg, 1 Gpg at TAC level

Overall: Shaw is a decent tall athletic wing project. At worst won’t fire too many shots, at best could be a decent wingman. Worth a late pick, but more likely a rookie selection.
