Strengths:

  • Flexibility (can play midfield)
  • Kicking
  • Intercepting
  • Ball-winning

  • Endurance

Overall:

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.
