Player Bio

At a glance

Draft: 2014 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 2 overall.
Recruited from: 
Beverley Hills (Vic)/Eastern U18

The ultra-talented youngster well and truly found his feet at AFL level in 2017. As many expected, Petracca started to impact games on a regular basis and gave Demons fans a glimpse of what they can expect in years to come. Petracca, who turned 22 in January, averaged 18.8 disposals and more than a goal a game (26 for the season), spending time up forward and through the midfield. In Jesse Hogan’s absence, he even played deep forward in a couple of games where his impact was significant. His ability to keep his feet and burst out of stoppages was also on display in the midfield, with the Demons calling upon him on several occasions to provide a spark. Could be one of the top players in the competition in the next few years.
