The pint-sized small forward with a penchant for big marks is coming off a career-best season, finishing with 34 goals and earning Brownlow Medal votes for the first time in his six-year career. His finishing in front of goal was a delight, calmly kicking the match-winner against Adelaide in round five and finishing 2016 with the 17th-best accuracy in front of goal across the League, with a return of 34.15 and a strike rate of 69.4 per cent. Rival clubs had a nibble at the end of last season, but he stayed put.

Player honours: premiership sides 2013, 2014, 2015.

Brownlow Medal: 2016 votes 3; career votes 3.

Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection (Hawthorn) No. 66 overall.
