AFL Draft Combine Results 2021

Here are the top fitness test results from the 2021 NAB AFL Draft Combine. The usual annual national draft Combine that has been held in Melbourne for the past decade was not held due to COVID lockdowns and border restrictions (same as last year). Instead, there was a series of separate state-based testing combines rather than a single national combine.

There were five individual camps in Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia. NSW/ACT and Vic metro did not undertake any combine testing, though those athletes submitted 2km time trial results via the Strava app.

Below is our top lists combining all the known state-based results. Some of the standout performances were East Fremantle's Corey Warner who had top-10 finishes in four tests and Leek Alleer who smashed the running vertical jump combine record with a whopping 107cm.

See also the men's top draft camp results for the top performers from each year since 2004. A 2021 women's combine was also held in July, with testing also conducted at the players' home states. See the invited player lists for the men and women.
