    Jamarra - How excited are YOU???

    So.

    We have picked first in the draft before...but never in the draft era has a 'generational' player been bound to our club. How it ends? Well, no-one knows...but he is an exceptional talent and really does jump at the ball in the forward 50 like few others in the history of the game.

    How excited are YOU?
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    Extremely excited to have a player of his caliber. He will make a huge difference to the team.

    I hope he can become a very good player and stick with the club for 200 plus games.

    Pretty hyped. If he reaches his potential, we have a pretty fun 10 years to look forward to.

    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Pretty excited but with a level of caution.

    A lot of highly rated young KPF's have struggled to make an impact at AFL level, but it does sound like he has some pretty raw traits that set him apart.

    Very excited if his name is called out at number 1, no less excited if it's any later.
    All of our supporters need to be patient with expectations though
    He's obviously had no season this year and will need some time to adjust

    There is a strong element of "too good to be true" in my expectations. Cannot wait to actually see him in action though.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    Re: Jamarra - How excited are YOU???

    Extremely excited. This kid will not be a bust. He's not your classic tall forward who dominated at U18s because of his size. He isn't THAT big. Supremely talented kid with crazy athleticism to boot. Looks to have great work ethic too so it's a scary proposition. Combining him with Naughton up forward has me excited for our forward line, especially if we can surround them with crumbers.

    I don't have great expectations for his first year given he'll be extremely raw following no football due to COVID. That said, I expect him to play a fair amount of games and he'll have me tuning in simply to watch him play. I mean, I'd watch anyway but you get what I mean.

    I am ever so slightly worried about our ability to keep him but I'll worry about that in a few years (btw I hope we sign Bailey Smith up soon).

    Cautiously optimistic.

    Apart from the obvious and somewhat lazy Buddy comparisons, what sort of player do people expect him to become? Would a more athletic Jack Reiwoldt be around the mark?

    Love the fact he brings xfactor to a group that is crying out for it, it will be very interesting to see how Bevo will use him early. My question mark is kicking for goal at this stage, I hope we work on this with him from day one( In theory should have already been on the agenda)

    He has spoken really well in the lead up to the draft and seems to have easily slotted in with the group going by social, the club looks like they have handed it well. So much to like.

    Who was Buddy like? Who is Dusty like?

    I feel like Jamarra will be like no one else.

    Capital V Very excited. If he's bad I'll be astounded.

    My real concern is when he hits the end of his first contract.

    I don't see the Buddy comparisons at all. I really don't.

    If there's any player right now I think he plays like, it's Aaron Naughton. That launch at the ball is sublime, and he has really sticky hands. Super quick when the ball hits the ground - like Naughts, quicker than our smalls.
    Nobody would say JUH's kicking is a weapon.... just like Aaron.

    I hope we're patient with him as he hasn't played any football in 2020 so I'm expecting him to need VFL time to work out senior football forward structures.
