Former AFL great Terry Wallace has named the 14 midfielders he believes will show the biggest improvement in 2020.
Speaking on SEN Drive, Wallace named 11 players he believes will make a big jump, but not reach stardom level just yet.
Jarrod Berry (Brisbane)
Andrew McGrath (Essendon)
Adam Cerra (Fremantle)
Brandan Parfitt (Geelong)
Jye Caldwell (GWS)
Jy Simpkin (North Melbourne)
Xavier Duursma (Port Adelaide)
Marlion Pickett (Richmond)
Hunter Clark (St Kilda)
Pat Lipinski (Western Bulldogs)
Bailey Smith (Western Bulldogs
Wallace went on to highlight the three youngsters he believes will join the elite midfield ranks, stating they will become “rolled gold guns of the competition” in 2020.
Hugh McCluggage (Brisbane)
“He was right up there in calculations this year for All-Australian. I think he is going to be a genuine star. In his (draft) year I had him at number one,” Wallace said.
Tim Taranto (GWS)
“Somebody from that same draft, Tim Taranto. He finished high up in their best and fairest in his first year and won it in his second year,” Wallace said.
James Worpel (Hawthorn)
“I think with Tom Mitchell coming back, I just think Worpel is going to get better and better again,” Wallace said.
“They’re the three guys who have been in the system two to four years who I think are our up and coming rolled gold stars.”
