Zoe Venning has been thereabouts in terms of draftability the last few seasons and remains among the ones to watch in the AFLW Draft. She has been outstandingly consistent, finishing runner-up in the SANFL Women's League Best and Fairest to Piper Window last season.

A natural ball-winner, her numbers again took a jump as she largely shouldered the midfield duties for West Adelaide as the Bloods suffered a terribly unlucky run with injuries.

As tough as they come, capable on the inside and strong defensively, Venning has a well-round athletic base. She boasts a large tank to runout games, her contest-to-contest work is brilliant, and she does all the team things you would expect.

Her main area of improvement - her kicking - which has been the deficiency that has held her back from being drafted - remains the key focus, but it has been improving, along with having a great impact on the outside.

When players miss out on being drafted, clubs look for improvement areas the following season, and it is hard to deny Venning lifted her already known strengths to remain a key midfielder in the SANFLW. Well aware of her strengths and areas of development, Venning is a player who is capable of matching it with senior players.
