Debut: yet to debut
Recruited from: 
Calder Cannons 
Brownlow Votes: -

The left-footer played seven SANFL league games in his first year at Adelaide, showing glimpses of why he was included in the AIS-AFL Academy as a 17-year-old. A goalkicking onballer, Atkins can play at half-forward and also in the midfield. Should benefit from playing in the Crows system year-round.

Recruited from the prominent Victorian Calder Cannons Football Club, Atkins is a skilful left-footer who is renowned for his fantastic kicking skills. Atkins spent time at the AIS-AFL Academy, training with the nation’s best underage talent. The 18-year-old secured the Calder Cannons 2012 best and fairest award after a fantastic 2012 season playing predominantly as a half forward and in the midfield. He was Adelaide's second and final selection at the November national draft.
