TWO young footballers will get the chance to live their AFL dream after the Fremantle Dockers picked them in this afternoon’s AFL Rookie Draft.

The Dockers picked young Oakley Chargers triple threat Taylin Duman, a 193cm defender who can also play effectively in attack and in the midfield, with pick three.

East Fremantle tall forward Luke Strnadica will not have to travel far to chase his dream, selected by the Dockers with pick 21, while delisted players Brady Gray and Josh Deluca-Cardillo were redrafted to the Dockers’ rookie list.

Two other former Dockers were also given a lifeline, with Tendai Mzungu drafted to GWS and Alex Silvagni to Carlton.

East Fremantle forward Cameron Zurhaar was the only other Fremantle WAFL product chosen, drafted to North Melbourne.
