Pick 20: Hayden Crozier
Fremantle has selected Victorian midfielder Hayden Crozier with pick 20.
Pick 20 – Hayden Crozier – 17yrs, 185cm – A stand out at the NAB AFL Draft Combine, recording the second best result in the running vertical jump test at 91cm. He also managed fine results in the 20m sprint (2.89 seconds), and in the agility run (8.08 seconds – top six). He represented Vic Metro at the NAB AFL U18 Championships, playing in all five games. He can take a great mark, which was highlighted at Patersons Stadium when he took a spectacular grab against WA. Crozier kicked eight goals during the championships. He is very well balanced and a beautiful kick of the footy on his preferred left side. He averaged 18.7 disposals for the Ranges this year at 67.4 per cent efficiency.
Pick 20 fact – This is the third Draft in a row that Fremantle has pick 20. We have previously selected Nat Fyfe (2009) and Jayden Pitt (2010).
