The Don Drapers

Draper may be a former soccer player, but he has wasted no time adjusting to football after showing great signs in his first season with the Bombers.

The big man played 18 VFL matches for Essendon in 2017 and improved dramatically, highlighted by his astonishing performances against Geelong (58 hit-outs) and Footscray (49) in the final two games of the year. 

The young ruckman has already committed to the club for another two years and has impressed in the JLT Community Series, giving fans plenty to look forward to in the coming years.
