Round 1 NAB Cup is already over and before we know it the season will be in full swing. The weekend offered us all our first look at the class of 2007. The Great White hopes for many fans of the more struggling clubs, and added stability for a future that will remain bright for others travelling a bit better. Whether you are a Dream Teamer, looking to snuff out a couple of ready made draftees. Or just a devoted AFL fan watching and hoping that your club may have snared the next Chris Judd with their 1st round pick.

Just one game in, possibly to early to read to much in to things but there were plenty of good sings across the entire weekend that the much hyped 2006 AFL draft may live up to expectations. Here are a few that got out the blocks well early.

Bryce Gibbs- He showed some flashes of the brilliance he possesses. Finishing the match with 3 Kicks, 4 Handballs, 1 Mark from limited game time.

Bachar Houli- Essendon Couldn't believe couldn't believe there luck when they picked this youngster up at No. 41 in the draft and the weekend showed why with a brilliant first up display finishing with a handy 7 Kicks, 7 Handballs, 3 Marks, in a polished display.

Lachlan Hansen- Kangaroos 3rd Draft pic overall. Hansen Is a key position player who has played mostly centre half back. He made a good slightly nervous start to his AFL career against Collingwood at Carrara with a few errant disposals along the way to compiling stats of 6 Kicks, 2 Handballs, 1 Mark.

Nathan J. Brown- Collingwoods 2nd pick taken at 10 overall another 1st year player and of course the 3rd Nathan Brown in the AFL. A tall mobile player who picked up the game late after playing Basketball as a youngster eased into the AFL in round 1 picking up 6 Kicks, 2 Handballs, 1 Mark.

David Armitage- StKilda's 1st round pick at 9 overall, Armitage is a a medium midfielder/defender who looks to be a solid long time player for the Saints. Finished off Saturday nights match with 8 Kicks, 3 Handballs, 1 Mark.

Joel Sellwood- Massive stand out of the 1st gamers. The 3rd of the Sellwood brothers fitted straight into the top level in racking up 10 Kicks, 9 Handballs, 3 Marks. Always looking to have time to dispose of the ball Geelong would be over the moon with his efforts!
