Stratton struggled for continuity with ankle, back and calf injuries keeping him out for parts of the season, but he is such a key member of the backline the Hawks were happy not to rush him back and he repaid the faith with an excellent finals series. Stratton remains unappreciated outside Hawthorn, but his ability to play tall and short, his reading of the play, his contested marking and his consistent output makes him one of the first picked every week.

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