Two famous Collingwood surnames will vie for spots on AFL lists this summer, with Tyler Brown and Ed Richards both impressing in their respective junior competitions.

Jake Niall of Fox Footy reported on Wednesday evening both youngsters are draft chances, however Collingwood only holds father-son rights to Brown – son of Gavin and brother of current Magpie Callum.

“Collingwood is a strong chance to claim Tyler Brown,” Niall wrote.

“But the Magpies are in the same position as every other club when considering Ed Richards, the grandson of Collingwood great Ron Richards, whose more famous brother and fellow Magpie Lou was given a state funeral on Wednesday.”

Mid-size utility Richards plays for Carey Grammar in Melbourne’s APS competition. While he performs admirably for Darcy Moore’s former school, Brown played what Niall described as “an eye-catching” game for the Eastern Rangers against Bendigo in the TAC Cup at the weekend.

The 186cm Brown had 16 disposals, kicked a goal and was named among the best players in the Rangers’ 29-point victory over the Pioneers.

“(Brown) is viewed by recruiters as likely to be picked up in the draft, though Collingwood views him as either a late pick or a rookie list candidate,” Niall reports.

“…While Tyler Brown has received less at the same age than his brother, he moves well and recruiters are confident he will be drafted.”

Brown will have no shortage of advice at his resource if he faces the prospect of being drafted at the conclusion of the 2017 season.

While father Gavin’s achievements include 254 games, three Copeland Trophy’s and a 1990 Premiership, brother Callum will possess more recent inside knowledge.

The midfielder was selected by Collingwood as a father-son recruit with pick no.35 in the 2016 National Draft, and has since found strong form in five games for the VFL Magpies.

Whether the brothers will be sharing a locker room in 2018 remains to be seen.
