PORT ADELAIDE has taken Mitchell Georgiades with its second selection in the 2019 NAB AFL Draft. 

Georgiades went at pick 18 on Wednesday night, with the club adding to its young and exciting forward stocks.

The 18-year-old suffered a quad injury in last year's Futures Game at the MCG on grand final day, but has fully recovered and tested well in the AFL Draft Combine this year.

DATE OF BIRTH: 28th September 2001

HEIGHT: 191cm

WEIGHT: 78kg



Tall forward who has missed the entire season due to a quad injury but has now made a complete recovery. He showed strong promise as a bottom aged player in 2018, representing his state in all four NAB AFL Under-18 Championship matches averaging 10 disposals and four marks. He also gave a glimpse of his outstanding contested marking ability when playing for team Bartel in the 2018 NAB AFL All-Stars Futures game on Toyota AFL Grand Final day. He is a very competitive player overall who reads the game exceptionally well and uses the ball effectively by hand and foot. He is the son of former Western Bulldogs player John Georgiades, who famously kicked eight goals on debut in 1989 against Carlton.
