Is Johnston quicker than Coffield?I like Johnson. A lot. And I won’t have any problem if we snare him. As a midfielder. But to suggest he can play every area of the ground - midfield, up forward and defence - is probably going a bit too far in the admiration stakes for me. If he could play a defined role in every region of the ground then people watching a hell of a lot more of him than me and you (ie the clubs and various talent watchers) would be right onto that amazing capability and he’d be a top 3 or 4 pick. But just about every man and his dog has him in the 12 to 20 range.
But who knows. You could be seeing more to him than all those people. He could turn out to be one of those very very rare beasts.
Guess we’ll just have to wait and see over the next 4 or 5 years.
Hate to end up with that type of player.
I’d have no problems picking him at 15 but as you say, by definition, 7 is a massive reach.
Lacks elite athleticism. And you can’t teach that
