After being overlooked at two drafts, Matt Guelfi finally landed a place on an AFL list when Essendon chose the versatile West Australian with its final pick at last year's draft.

Guelfi, who stands at 184cm, has been used in a variety of positions, but is best used as a tough inside midfielder.

Essendon wanted to add a couple of those types to their list and Guelfi's pace – he ran under three seconds in the 20-metre sprint last year – and goalkicking ability (he booted 20 goals in 19 games for Claremont) means he is a dangerous player with good senior experience.

The 20-year-old has displayed that experience in his impressive performances in the pre-season competitions for the Bombers and will be putting his hand up for senior selection in 2018.
