MELBOURNE will be giving Judd McVee a shot at the top level, signing him in the NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

McVee was made to wait for his AFL call-up after missing selection in Thursday night’s National Draft, but there was plenty of interest in the defender due to his class off half-back.

The 18-year-old is known for providing plenty of rebound from defence and will complement the likes of Christian Salem, Jake Bowey and Trent Rivers at the Dees.

Standing at 182cm, McVee has clean hands at ground level and impressed many with his composure for East Fremantle in 2021.

The Western Australian becomes Melbourne’s fourth new addition this week, following the recruitment of Jacob van Rooyen, Blake Howes and Taj Woewodin in the National Draft.
