Northern Territory product, Brodie Lake, has placed in the top 10 for non-Victorians and top 20 overall in the 20-metre sprint at the NAB AFL National Draft Combine. Running the 20-metre sprint in 2.907 seconds, Lake's time ranks him fifth for non-Vic players and 14th out of all the players to complete the 20m speed test.
He has also tested well in the running vertical jump (left leg), recording a leap of 94cm which is good enough for equal-third amongst those who have completed the test.
Lake's draft combine results paired with his form for Central Districts' Under 18 and Reserves sides in the SANFL have him listed in Kevin Sheehan's top medium/tall midfielders in this year's draft.
He is eligible for pre-selection by the Gold Coast SUNS as part of the SUNS academy program in the NT, as is tall forward/defender Joel Jeffrey, who Sheehan has listed as a top prospect amongst this year' crop of tall defenders.
The NAB AFL Draft is set to take place commencing the week of 7 December.
