"They were really young and stacked with talent. Some of the players who are coming back from injury now, that weren't even playing much last year, they just add to the group and its depth," Cerra said.

"Hearing about the group and the boys, they seemed really motivated. With all of the changes, to be able to join Carlton now, you feel like you're a part of it and building it from the ground up."

He knows where to run to get the footy and when he gets it, good things happen," Blues list manager Nick Austin said.

"He's a (future) 200-game player that's ready to play AFL football now."
