Debut: AFL 2002
Recruited from: Mooroolbark/Eastern U18/Box Hill Hawks
Brownlow Votes:-

The midfield maestro was in ripping touch until a serious hamstring injury in the middle of the season that kept him out for seven matches. In hindsight, the injury might have been a blessing because, fresh and rested, Mitchell played a key role in Hawthorn’s barnstorming run to the premiership, averaging 32 possessions during the finals. His Grand Final display was masterful and he almost snared the Norm Smith Medal. Continues to spend time across half-back as a playmaker, but his work in the centre when called upon can be devastating. Uses the ball as well as anyone by hand, kicks equally well on both sides of his body and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Draft history: 2001 National AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 36 overall traded by Fremantle for Trent Croad and Luke McPharlin.
