Adelaide has selected ruckman Paul Hunter with its first pick (No.13 overall) in the AFL Rookie Draft.

Hunter, 22, is an athletic big man who won the NEAFL Rising Star award in 2014, as well as the best and fairest award for his club, Redland.

He is a strong mark and likes to crash packs. His vertical jump scores at the state combine screening last month were ranked top six across Australia. Hunter also ran a 14.9 beep test and posted a time of 3.04 seconds in the 20-metre sprint.

Originally from Warner’s Bay near Newcastle in NSW, Hunter moved north in 2013.
