AFL Draft Camp Results 2010

Here are the top 10 fitness test results from the 2010 AFL draft camp (now known as the AFL Draft Combine), as published on the official AFL website. The test was held from September 28 to October 1, 2010, with 100 players invited.

A new test for 2009 was the kicking efficiency test, and for 2010 another skill test 'clean hands' was also added. See also some results from the 2010 state screening, and top draft camp results for the top performers from each year since 2004.
