AFL hope­fuls will be put through their paces this week with scouts on the look­out for the com­pe­ti­tion’s next big thing.

Three Fre­man­tle-based WAFL play­ers are among the pool of 80 play­ers to fea­ture in the draft com­bine run this Thurs­day to Sun­day at Dock­lands in Mel­bourne.

East Fre­man­tle’s Cameroon Zurhaar and South Fre­man­tle’s Shai Bolton and Tim English will be tested for ath­leti­cism, foot­ball skills, personalit­y and char­ac­ter.

AFL na­tional and in­ter­na­tional tal­ent man­ager Kevin Shee­han said the com­bine would bring the best young tal­ent to one place for a fi­nal round of test­ing.
