Darcy Fogarty

Many thought the Crows got a steal when they picked up the solidly built 18-year-old with the 12th overall pick in last year's NAB AFL Draft.

Three first-half goals against Port Adelaide on Saturday emphasised that point. Fogarty has the natural instincts of a forward. He knows when to lead, has strong hands and can finish from set shots outside 50m.

He's a strong chance to debut in round one, but it might not be the case if skipper Taylor Walker recovers from a foot injury in time. Nevertheless, Fogarty's an extremely exciting prospect and someone the Crows can build their forward line around for the next decade.
