Brownlow Votes:-

The superstar forward was on track for a third Coleman Medal in 2012 before a hamstring strain kept him sidelined for six weeks. He still won his fourth All-Australian selection though, after averaging 18.4 disposals, 3.7 tackles and 3.6 goals a game. Coming into his football prime, Franklin remains the game’s most exciting all-round talent.

Draft history: 2004 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Hawthorn) No. 5 overall.
