Harry Sheezel has been touted as an excitement machine and is nailed on to be one of the best prospects in his class. The Victorian forward who can also shift into midfield when needed has put up a very impressive set of highlights over the course of 2022.

His role in NAB League premiers Sandringham Dragons' campaign was pivotal, booting 36 goals from 14 appearances. At 184cm tall, his ability overhead is remarkable despite his relatively small size.

Furthermore, his goal sense and ability to create something out of nothing mean that he makes an extremely tantalising prospect for anyone looking for an X-factor for their attacking stocks, despite him not having outstanding athleticism.

Sheezel's disposal by foot is something to behold and is able to pinpoint a teammate on a lead or go back and slot one from a difficult angle when required, making him an all-around forward-half monster.

The forward also recorded a remarkable feat this year, becoming only the fifth player since Champion Data started recording to register three 200 or more ranking point matches in the NAB League this year.

This trio of appearances included a six-goal, 28-disposal match against Tasmania which saw him score a whopping 237 ranking points as he wiped the floor with his opposition.

It's said that North Melbourne are the leading club in the race for the tricky forward as they look to replace the departed Jason Horne-Francis with a strong draft hand this year.

"Sheezel is opportunistic but also makes and earns his chances, be it through clean overhead marking, sharp hands at ground level, game smarts or classy kicking." - Cal Twomey, AFL.com.au
