Hawthorn will narrowly miss out on having priority access to Noah Anderson, the son of Hawks premiership player Dean Anderson, as a father-son recruit at the 2019 NAB AFL Draft.

Anderson looks a top talent, however the Hawks will not be able to secure him as a father-son, given Dean played 83 games there short of the 100 required to be an eligible father-son pick.

"He's very sure and a very smooth mover, so he's an exciting prospect. He's been a high level basketballer as well, so those skills translate well to the footy field," Hawthorn's talent manager Craig Notman said.
