Good mates Jordan Gallucci and Myles Poholke have joined their Crows teammates for the first time since being taken with the club's first two picks in last Friday's NAB AFL Draft.
Poholke said Gallucci had all the tools to make an impact at the next level.
"Jordan brings that X-factor to the team," Poholke said.
"He works really hard, he's a leader. He's definitely someone you want on your side rather than playing against.
"He's been a massive help for me since I came into the program and showed me the professionalism that's needed and I can't wait to play with him."
The pair's move interstate to unfamiliar surroundings has been made easier after they were a part of the national academy.
"He gave me a call straight after his name was called out, it's a good feeling," Gallucci said.
"You know that person already so it helps with the transition."
