Brownlow Votes: -

Seldom grabbing headlines but incredibly reliable, Stratton might be the most underrated defender in the AFL. Capable of playing on body shapes big and small, he is ultra-disciplined and courageous in the air – so much so that he was voted by his teammates as Hawthorn’s nominee in the AFL Players’ Association most courageous player award in 2013. The West Australian’s strong season was also recognised at the Hawks’ awards night, where he finished fourth in the best and fairest count and was named the most consistent player.


Draft history: 2009 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 46 overall.
