With pick one in the 2022 NAB AFL Draft, the GIANTS have selected key forward Aaron Cadman.

The key details:

Drafted from: GWV Rebels/Vic Country

Position: Key forward
State: Vic
Height: 194cm
Weight: 88kg
Date of Birth: 03/03/2004


It has been a year of serious improvement and growth for Cadman, who entered the season having not played as a key forward before and ended it as the best in the draft. The left-footer is athletic and smart and is capable at ground level as well as in the air. He competes strongly and courageously and lifted his side when it was required on many occasions this season. Cadman finished the NAB League season with 34 goals and was an All-Australian at under-18 level and is a likeable, friendly youngster who has a healthy competitive streak.

What National Recruiting Manager Adrian Caruso says:

Aaron had a really strong year this year where he impacted consistently for both the GWV Rebels and Vic Country. He is a mobile key forward who can get up the ground as well as impact closer to goal. We felt through the interview process that Aaron was a great fit for our footy club. When we combined that with his talent and how hard it is to find good young key forwards, we felt it was worthwhile trading up to guarantee we didn’t miss out on him.
