Draft preview: Croft to come of age in 2019

AFL New Zealand Academy graduate Jevaan Croft has had a big year in 2018 and with his inclusion into the national draft on November 28th, Croft will look to become a big name in the 2019 competition.


After his consistent form playing as a Development Player in this year’s Premiership, Jevaan has shown attributes of what it takes to perform at the highest level.

His speed, vision and footwork are his best attributes on the footy field and Jevaan will only be better off having played in the top flight of footy in New Zealand.

The AFL New Zealand Rising Star award winner in round four this year, Jevaan continues to develop his game and his speed and vision are some of his best attributes so early in his career.

Croft made his New Zealand debut for the Academy Level 2 side back in April 2017 and was part of the New Zealand U18 squad for the Port Adelaide and Melbourne campaigns in the last 12 months.
