Hill keeps living the dream at the Hawks – four years, three flags and all before his 23rd birthday. His possession numbers were marginally down on 2014, but his speed and endurance remain at elite levels and his running up and down the lines is a key part of the game-plan. Hill found his touch at the business end of the season after a quiet July and August and played a good finals series. As long as he and Isaac Smith are in the same side, opposition coaches will struggle to put the clamps on both. Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2013; premiership sides 2013, 2014, 2015.
Brownlow Medal: 2015 votes 4; career votes 6.
Draft history: 2011 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 33 overall.
