Bio: Tall defender/forward who excelled at both ends of the ground this year. Reads the play exceptionally well in the air, has clean hands and provides run from defence. Finished equal-second in the kicking test at the NAB AFL Draft Combine (scoring 28/30) and recorded 8.36 sec in the agility run. Excelled late in the season as a prolific ball-winning midfielder for the Northern Knights in the TAC Cup, averaging eight marks and demonstrating his aerial skills. Averaged 14 possessions in his five appearances in the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships.
List Manager Adrian Dodoro says: "Kyle is one of the younger players in the draft. He reads the balls as well as any player, he has a big engine and can play in the midfield. We've got a player here that can play deep inside 50 then go on-ball. He's a guy that the modern game is suited to because he can get up and down the ground quite easily."
