Under the microscope in our AFL Draft watch is highly-touted Oakleigh Chargers key forward Jamarra Ugle-Hagan, who is a prime candidate to be taken first off the board come draft time after a stellar bottom-aged season. The Warrnambool native represents Vic Country despite his current zoning in Oakleigh’s system via boarding at Scotch College, and will be well sought after despite his ties to the Western Bulldogs as a Next Generation Academy (NGA) product. The 194cm prospect returned elite numbers at the pre-season testing day, showing off an elite vertical leap off both feet while also registering under the three-second mark over 20 metres and over 21 in the yo-yo test. A star athlete across the board, Ugle-Hagan has the raw potential to be anything at the next level.
The verdict is in after another terrific month of football from the latest crop of budding AFL draftees. Victorian prospects remain starved of action, but the best and brightest from around the nation have been stamping their claims, making for some interesting movers and sliders. In Draft Central‘s third Power Rankings edition for 2020, we extend our list out to 25 names, with key adjustments made to our initial July and August analyses. A certain West Australian key forward continues to rise steeply, while the Northern Territory gains a representative in the extended cut. All that, and more in our September Power Rankings update.
Note, the list is ordered purely on our opinion and each players’ ability, not taking into account any AFL clubs’ lists or needs.
