Pick 19: Liam Stocker

Highlights | Liam Stocker Take a look at what we can expect from draftee Liam Stocker, who was selected with pick No.19 at the 2018 NAB AFL Draft.

LIAM Stocker is now a Blue, after Carlton selected the talented midfielder with pick No.19 in the 2018 NAB AFL Draft.

A historic live trade saw Carlton acquire Stocker with pick No.19 in exchange for its future first-round draft pick. The Blues also receive Adelaide's future first pick. 

A representative of the Sandringham Dragons, Stocker proved his credentials in the TAC Cup with a triumph in the Morrish Medal as the competition’s best and fairest player.

The exciting youngster impressed onlookers with his performances in the midfield, where he combined his grunt on the inside with class on the outside. Equally adept by hand or foot, Stocker is also a versatile prospect, given he hits the scoreboard when he goes forward.

It was the combination of his ball use and his burst of speed which convinced the Blues to call out Stocker’s name at the draft, despite missing the under-18 championships through injury.

A well-rounded, natural footballer, Stocker averaged over five clearances and four tackles to go with his 22 disposals in the TAC Cup. He earned a reputation as one of the draft crop’s premier ball-winners.

Welcome, Liam!
