Mason Fletcher, son of Bombers great Dustin Fletcher, is expected to be a father-son pick by Essendon in the 2018 draft and will train with the club for the next fortnight.

"If you were to get him to shave his head, you'd mistake the two," Essendon key defender Michael Hurley said.

"Same size, same shape, same attributes really great young kid as well so it's really exciting to have him around for the next couple of weeks and hopefully he can develop a fair bit."
