NAB AFL Draft Combine: Cooper Sharman

Leeton’s Cooper Sharman will have a nerve-racking seven-week wait until draft night after testing at the NAB AFL National Draft Combine in Melbourne last week.

Over the course of the week, Sharman had his physical measurements recorded while also having his athletic traits such as speed, aerobic capacity, vertical leap and agility tested.

AFL recruitment staff also had opportunity to profile Cooper’s character through a series of interviews throughout the testing period.

A smart and reliable goalkicking forward, Sharman has developed quickly over a short space of time, his X-factor inside 50 was among the best in the NAB League this year.

The 2019 NAB AFL Draft will be held on November 27th and 28th.
