Aaron Francis was one of the top prospects heading into the 2015 National Draft. He’s tall, but mobile and capable of playing in all three areas of the ground. 

Francis looked at home in his debut AFL game against Brisbane in round 18 2016, producing an eye-catching performance that included 16 disposals and seven marks. He ended the season with three senior games under his belt and there were plenty of highlights at both AFL and VFL level.
