Queenslanders on show in AFL Draft Combine

For the draft crop of 2016, the National AFL Draft Combine is the first sign that their AFL dreams are a step closer to fruition.

An invitation to the AFL Draft Combine means that at least five AFL clubs have expressed interest in the player.

The AFL Draft Combine is a way for clubs to determine the players’ physical strengths as well as getting one-on-one time through combine interviews.

Draftees take on each other in a series of tests that challenge their speed, endurance, reflexes and skills to determine their strengths and weaknesses.

Combine results are taken into account by clubs when deciding between players and whether they believe they can take the next step into the AFL.

A total of 81 players – including six Queenslanders were invited to the 2016 AFL Draft Combine with testing from Friday October 7 to Sunday October 8.
