Name: Ben Paton
Club: Murray Bushrangers/Vic Country
Draft range: 35-50
Summary: Rebounding defender with a reliable kick off half-back.
- Flexibility (can play midfield)
Paton missed out on draft selection last year as a midfielder, returning in 2017 as a dangerous half-backman with good skills on both sides.
He’s a good decision maker and strong interceptor, and having the ability to swing into the midfield gives him the versatility clubs desire.
Paton is athletic, with a quick burst of speed, however, has room to improve with his endurance.
