What Shiels lacks in profile, he makes up for in impact. The dual premiership midfielder led the Hawks in tackles and inside 50s and demonstrated his toughness by preparing for and playing the Grand Final with a broken nose. Super fit, he has evolved from his primary run-with role to being an attacking midfielder in his own right and the next step in his football is to take on more of a leadership role at Hawthorn, where he is openly touted as a future captain.

Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 34 overall.
