New Tiger Jack Graham.
Richmond has landed North Adelaide inside midfielder Jack Graham with its second selection, pick No. 53, at the 2016 AFL National Draft.
Here is a summary of what Richmond fans can expect to see from Graham in future seasons . . .
Jack Graham
North Adelaide (SANFL), 181cm, 81kg

A big-bodied inside midfielder, Graham has the physical attributes to step straight into an AFL midfield group in 2017 and have an immediate impact.

His manic workrate and appetite for the contest will hold him in good stead, as it did during the under-18 national championships, where he walked away with the Larke Medal, as the standout player in the competition, averaging 25 disposals per game throughout the carnival.

While he lacks some overall polish, he more than compensates through his relentless attack on the football, competitiveness, and presence around the stoppages.

Graham’s repeat running ability enables him to have an impact, both inside and outside the contest.

He has leadership qualities written all over him, and will be one to watch in season 2017.
