This year, more than ever, it was difficult to understand the upcoming 2020 draft class.
With all the complexities surrounding game styles, draft value and more, sometimes the simplest facts about these stars of the future are lost.
Perhaps the most basic question – for whom the shed? Foxfooty.com.au has compiled a list to try to help answer this question about some of this year’s prospects.

Wing of the Great West Victoria Rebels Harry Sharp, who broke the 2km time trial with a time of 5 minutes and 28 seconds, offered what could be a definitive sign that the Gold Coast Suns have established themselves as an AFL club that can reach those at the grassroots level.
“I follow Gold Coast, I just follow them because of Gary Ablet when he moved there,” Sharp told foxfooty.com.au.
“I thought it would be a perfect new beginning and finally see the light now.”
While the decision to change allegiance to the Sun was astounding in theory, the team he moved to could still have nightmares for him.
“I was actually Richmond before that. “They started to have success around two or three years ago, so they sewed me there,” he said.
“I could not go back, it would be a move with a band car. “Back in the day, Richmond was not so good in 2013.”
However, the mood of the Gold Coast Suns extends beyond just Sharp, with that of Sturt Tom Powell saying SEN SA he also “supported the Gold Coast Suns as a young man.”

For a few more potential future soldiers, the choice of club was less theirs and more inherited. Max Holmes for foxfooty.com.au, “I shed for St. Kilda. “My father asked for it because my grandfather played for Sandringham Zends.”
Victorian Draft Project Eddie Ford follows the Saints for the same reason – though he was not so delicate in how he explained it.
“I go to St. “Kilda,” he said, adding: “Dad was a longtime supporter and he forced me to be one.”
Elijah Hollands, meanwhile, is rusty on Vrana’s supporter, with family ties that can be found there as well. “My mother was born in Adelaide, and she grew up in Adelaide and lived most of her life there, and she met Dad when he was playing for SunFL in West Adelaide,” he told foxfooty.com.au.
“I was born in Adelaide, I lived there for eight or nine years and I jumped on a crow with a crow here.”
Tanner Brun is a prospect of “elilong falcons”, but became a fan of the West Coast eagles while in Perth Denver Granger-Baras it is also all part of Adam Simpson.
