Dion Prestia (Calder Cannons/Vic Metro) - Draft Profile

176/81 ‘inside-out’ midfielder
Capable of sustaining a ranking of 3-10 within an AFL list
Style like Leigh Montagna

Selling points are his tackle slipping/breaking ability, evasion, pace off the mark, all round ball winning ability both inside and out, defensive pressure and tackling ability, attacking instinct, dual sided with good kicking depth

Clean hands and can be creative with feeds, kicking reliability is decent, hits the scoreboard well and frequently for a midfielder

Query are his lack of height for midfielder

Despite his height, Prestia has the potential to be a very good AFL midfielder that is capable of playing both inside and outside roles through the midfield with equally good effect.

He possesses a very mature build and looks to be at his ideal playing weight at a lean bodyfat - should be ready to go next year and at the right team could play a large chunk if not close to all of his first season.
