Drew is a tall, agressive, inside midfielder. His size, at 188cm makes him versatile, as he can be used in the forward line, as well as on the ball.

He is generally a good user of the ball, but his strength is in the stoppage and he could work on his outside movement and ball use.

He received limited opportunites in the midfield during the Under-18 Championships, as he was behind some bigger names at Vic Metro, however, he has shown enough at TAC Cup level to have an impact in the AFL.
