Hawthorn missed the finals last year for the first time in eight years, but it was the development of players such as Hardwick that ensured it was a season of promise rather than misery. He joined the Hawks as a forward, but after a one-game cameo there in 2016, he was switched down back last season where his ability to negate opposing small forwards and use the ball beautifully coming out of the backline earned him high praise from the Hawks and outside the club. His 85 per cent disposal efficiency was clearly the highest of any Hawk who had more than 100 disposals in 2017. A strong summer should see him remain a member of the club’s best 22.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2017.

Draft history: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 44 overall.
