The Geelong Falcons captain capped a great NAB AFL Under-18 Championships last year when he was named All-Australian. Worpel was identified by the Hawks as capable of playing at AFL level almost immediately because of his strong body. The Hawks need more inside midfield depth and the club’s first selection at last year’s NAB AFL Draft is seen as someone who can offer support to Tom Mitchell almost immediately.

Draft history: 2017 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 45 overall.
