Melbourne could have a new midfield weapon next year with the club planning a positional switch for livewire forward Kysaiah Pickett.

The 21-year-old has spent the majority of his 62 AFL games stationed in the forward line, but has been earmarked for more time in the midfield off the back of a big summer in the gym.

Pickett, who is listed as 73kg on the club’s official site, has bulked up considerably in the off-season.

“The plan is different for everyone, (and) for Kozzie it was to actually put on a bit more size,” GM of football Alan Richardson said.

“(Pickett) is looking to potentially do a little bit more work through the midfield.

“One of the things that came out of our game in the review was perhaps we need a little bit more, to rotate (players) through and because he’s one of those, he’s got some new weapons in there so we’ll just see how he goes in the pre-season.”

The Demons midfield is widely considered to be the best in the competition with six-time All-Australian Max Gawn, and superstars Christian Petracca, Clayton Oliver and Jack Viney a dominant combination.

Boom recruit Brodie Grundy was also on the track after crossing over from Collingwood in the trade period and he will also be added to that electric mix in an exciting ruck pairing with Gawn.

The 28-year-old only managed six games this year with knee and ankle injuries ruining his season, but he was back on the track at his new club on Monday.

“He’s really good, he’s done a lot of work. Our guys have had their hands all over him to make sure he is physically right go given he’s had the surgery, Richardson said.

“He’s probably one we’re going to have to hold back a little bit. He’s a really hard trainer, he likes to get out there and do the work, he’s in good shape.”

Fellow recruits Lachie Hunter and Josh Schache were also on the track for the first time.
