Richmond has selected North Ballarat Rebels forward/midfielder Daniel Butler with its fourth pick (selection 67) in the 2014 National Draft.

The 18-year-old impressed this season with his speed, endurance and ability to break the lines.

Injury caused him to miss the AFL Combine, but he did enough to impress the Tigers in 13 appearances at TAC Cup level, where he averaged 17 disposals and 5.6 tackles per game.

Butler also represented Vic Country at the 2014 National Championships, where he played six games and averaged 12 touches and four tackles.

“Daniel is an extremely quick midfielder or forward who can make things happen with his speed,” sad Richmond Recruiting Manager Francis Jackson.

“He can break the lines from stoppage but also use his speed defensively with his tackling.

“He also has good goal sense and has a knack of getting to the fall of the ball as a forward.”
