Isaac Chugg and Patrick Walker have attributes that will translate to the elite stage, says AFL Tasmania talent manager Cameron Joyce.
The two 18-year-olds found their way to Collingwood and North Melbourne in Thursday's rookie draft after Tasmanian players went untouched in Wednesday's 59-pick national draft.
Joyce didn't set a pass mark for number of draftees in 2020, but was upbeat about the state's newest exports.

"We're really excited for both the boys being able to enter AFL clubs and give themselves an opportunity at the next level," Joyce said.
"We thought we had a reasonably even group and a number of guys that were in the mix to be drafted, but obviously we're just rapt that the two boys are going to get an opportunity."
Hailing from opposite ends of the state, Chugg and Walker played in the same Devils team last season and became TSL regulars in 2020.
The pair play similar roles across wing and half-back.
"Both boys are talented in their own right," Joyce said.
"Isaac's athletic profile is elite - his speed, his power, he's brought his endurance right down as well.
"He can mark the ball above his head and play on different types of opponents because of his athleticism and he's really competitive.
"Patrick has got elite endurance, he glides across the ground, at 187cm he's a nice shape and size.
"He can play a number of different roles and just kicks the footy so well."
Joyce admitted seeing top prospect Jackson Callow miss out on being drafted this year had been disappointing.
The North Launceston tall dominated as an under-ager for the Devils in 2019 and impressed when fit this year.
"I was certainly disappointed for him because I know the work he's put in and the last few years that he's had, he's been pretty awesome from that end.
"Now really we've just got to go to work again and try and work out what we need to do to put his name back up again."
