Every draft introduces new young guns to the AFL, but 2020 has been a season like no other.

We’ve seen a new wave of talent take the AFL by storm, and thus identified the clubs with the best young nucleus moving forward.

Here are the clubs with the best young talent.

6. Port Adelaide

It would come as no surprise that Port Adelaide makes the list, with the youngsters helping drive the club to first place on the ladder. Three of Port’s young guns have been particularly instrumental to their success and all have the potential be genuine stars.

Zak Butters and Connor Rozee continue to dominate up forward and through the midfield, backing up their impressive rookie seasons.

Midfielder Xavier Duursma is the third musketeer playing under Ken Hinkley. After being primarily used across half back last year, he is taking advantage of more midfield opportunities in 2020.
