Plenty of prospects from the Suns. Maverick Weller is an up and comer. You can even opt for the mature age rookies Kyal Horsley and Andrew McQualter; both are destined to make their mark early. Ablett is no hidden gem, everyone has him as their captain most weeks anyway.
2. Zac Smith – Extremely agile tall who developed well in the ruck last season. Made the transition swiftly. Will get better with more time in the gym.
4. Maverick Weller – Hard-working midfielder and uncompromising tackler. Says he feels more at home with his parents moving up to the Goldie.
9. Gary Ablett – Inspirational skipper who was a runaway winner of the club B&F. Still in his prime after two premiership medals and a Brownlow.
14. Matthew Warnock – Experienced defender from Melbourne. Excelled with Casey in VFL last season. Much to offer and will likely take a key defensive post.
18. Trent McKenzie – One of the revelations for the Suns in debut season. Quick midfielder hardly missed a beat. Star in the making.
19. Tom Lynch – Key forward described as a Nick Riewoldt clone. Showed strong mark and smart decision maker in tight situations. Strapped to the club until 2014.
20. Josh Toy – Strong marking all-rounder was one of four Suns that went to Arizona this pre-season to get fit for start of season. Super impressive debut year.
22. Tom Nicholls – Athletic ruck development prospect of Fijian heritage. Still improving his tap work but has an excellent leap. Shown a heap of improvement over pre-season.
23. Charlie Dixon – Physically imposing and creative key forward with strong hands. Late bloomer but came of age with promising glimpses last season.
24. David Swallow – Hard-working and talented midfielder was No.1 draft pick in 2010 draft. Strong physique and still maturing. Will become elite in next two seasons.
25. Danny Stanley – Hard-working ex-Pie found his niche in the midfield and rewarded with his most outstanding season. Grown in stature and maturity.
28. Josh Caddy – Ball-winning specialist was tempted to return to Victoria during trade period but deal didn’t get done. Superb kick on the run.
35. Michael Rischitelli – Midfielder in his prime, but last year wasn’t as effective as his B&F final season at the Lions. Renowned for his courage and hard tackling.
36. Sam Iles – Former Pie made his mark last season and still improving. Attacking midfielder has a knack of kicking crucial goals. House-mates with Stanley.
42. Kyal Horsley – Ready-made player from Subiaco, where he won club B&F last season. Finished runner-up in Sandover Medal for WAFL’s best. Ready for round one.
46. Josh Hall – Developing ruckman is an elite high jumper and has only been playing footy for two years. Huge leap. Seen as a development project.
51. Andrew McQualter – Ex-Saint midfielder was given limited opportunities last season, but shone for VFL affiliate Sandringham. Gets plenty of the ball.
