Tasmanian ruck-forward Cameron Owen is far from the finished product, but is one who earned a State Draft Combine invite following a consistent top-age year. Owen is not an explosive tall like others, but he is mobile enough that he can get around the ground and move a little better than some opposing rucks. He finds his fair share of the ball, and while his consistency is still building, has shown he can present as a leading forward as well as a ruck.

At 203cm, the Tasmanian is a good height, and at 94kg, is more built than many of his peers, and when presenting out in front inside 50 or around the ground, he is consistent enough with his hands to clunk them. Again, he is not a superb contested mark, but he can cleanly take grabs when creating separation on his opponent, and he will always make a contest. His upside is evident with what he does well.

Owen still has a number of areas to work on, as his consistency is still not there yet. From an on-field traits perspective, his ground level work is another area, while Owen missed chances to really influence up forward, though he presents well. A long-term prospect.
