What they say:
Inside Football magazine
"Tim is a more of an outside wingman type with great awareness and great pace. He was one who went away to the national carnival and came back and improved his football again which can be very difficult to do. Played about 10 senior games for us this year playing wing because he doesn't have the body at this stage to play onball but we threw him in there at times for experience. Quick and has good awareness" - Brian Leys, Port Adelaide General Manager (compiled by Brett Anderson and Ben Casanelia).
Jay Clark and Sam Landsberger (Herald Sun journalists)
"His pinpoint skills will help bring blue-chip stars into games."
Snoop Dog (respected draft watcher on BigFooty.com)
"Been watching this kid since late last year and has just continued to develop really well. Was impressive at times during the champs and in Foxtel Cup but has been very good for Port Magpies where he has seen senior action and acquitted himself well late in the season being a really influential player for them. He seems to have really good endurance which enables him to spread and get on the end of the ball more often than not. Has a nice turn of speed which he uses out of the contests and is very agile whilst ball use is efficient and certainly AFL standard. The only knock on Tim is he is a tiny little fella and he really needs to add some bulk. Wouldn’t surprise if he was taken a little earlier than this though as the upside potential is rife with him but he will need time. Will be a player."
