Vic Country representative Brayden George is an attractive draft talent who offers power and strength across the forward half of the field.

An untimely ACL injury has placed George on the sidelines for what will likely be almost all of his rookie campaign at AFL level.

The Wangaratta native has seen his draft stocks take a hit due to a series of injuries, with his latest setback a cruel blow for the explosive midfield-forward hybrid.

Nevertheless, what has been seen from George is more than enough to certify his standing as a potential first-round selection at the draft.

George is a brute in midfield, flexing his strength to win the ball - whether that be at the content or through his impressive ability overhead, and can move forward as a powerful scoreboard threat.

The Murray Bushrangers prospect started his NAB League season in style, booting five goals against Gippsland in his side's season opener, before besting that haul with a bag of six goals against the Rebels a month later.

George could fall in the opening 20 picks at next week's National Draft, with GWS, Collingwood, Hawthorn or St Kilda potential landing spots for the Bushrangers star.

Expert Comments

"Explosive medium forward who was named co-captain of the Murray Bushrangers this year. Started the NAB League season in brilliant fashion, with five goals in Round 1 and six goals in Round 5, before a knee injury ruled him out of the National Championships in the mid-year."
