Colac Tigers and Geelong VFL football officials think AFL clubs should take a punt on Colac’s Campbell Floyd in this week’s national or rookie drafts.

The 22-year-old enjoyed a breakout season in his third year with Geelong at VFL level, averaging 14.5 disposals at 79-per-cent efficiency in 15 games for the Cats, who finished the home-and-away season in third spot.

Floyd had been on the radar of AFL clubs when he graduated from the Geelong Falcons’ TAC Cup program in 2014, but has thrust his hand up once again during his impressive VFL season.

Geelong VFL team co-ordinator Nathan Tweddle said there had been AFL interest in Floyd this year.

“He’d be a smokey,” he said of Floyd’s draft chances.

“I know there’s been a little bit of interest, it’s always been my opinion that he’s got a different set of tricks.
