Patrick Karnezis (Oakleigh Chargers/Vic Metro) - Draft Profile

191/84 ‘inside-out’ general forward/utility
Capable of sustaining a ranking of 8-15
Style like Tyson Goldsack?

Selling points are his good vision/decision making reliability (brings others into the game), clean hands, good evasion/turning circle, team orientated play, defensive pressure, team play

Decent to good burst of pace off the mark and presents quite well on the lead

Sound overhead.

Ball use is neat without standing out in any particular area.

Has the potential to develop into defensive roles if required.

Query over his endurance to play up the ground and other roles.

I see Karnezis being a handy 3rd tall or lead up forward/utility player – he would best suit playing in a forward structure as a lead up high half forward, but could potentially play other roles – he could also be developed into a 3rd tall defender role as well.

He’s probably about 8kg away from his ideal playing weight, which will take 3 full pre-seasons to achieve.
