Arguably the biggest AFL Draft bolter in 2023, Charlie Edwards has come a long way in a short space of time. He only received a State Draft Combine invite, but is in line to be the first taken from that group of prospects. A potential second round selection, Edwards boasts a pair of clean hands, nice burst speed and a skillset to match.

His upside is evident in his rate of development thus far, and for a player not on the radar early, he is certainly on a lot of clubs’ lips now. Edwards was so highly touted at year's end, clubs suggested they wanted to see him elevated to the National Draft Combine.

He does still have areas to work on such as his consistency and exposure at that elite junior level - having not played for Vic Metro - but his body of work with Sandringham Dragons is rock solid. His athletic testing was perhaps an indicator of that factor, but not indicative of his explosiveness as a big-bodied midfielder. He did fare well in the 2km time trial however, with a time of 6:24.
