Tom Boyd

Height: 200cm

Weight: 104kg

Power-forward Tom Boyd arrived at the Kennel during the 2014 NAB AFL Trade Period from the GWS Giants.

The 200-centimetre forward was the number one draft pick in the 2013 NAB AFL Draft, and was the undisputed top draft pick throughout the year.

Boyd’s size, speed, leap and marking have long been regarded as close to the complete package in a key forward, also exhibiting strong leadership traits throughout his junior career.

He was also the TAC Cup’s leading goal-kicker in his bottom age year in 2012, and the youngest member of Vic Metro’s 2012 NAB AFL Under-18 Championships division one winning side.
