Peter Vissaris

The move from the Swans at the start of last season offered Mitchell the chance to shine and he finished 2017 as one of the stars of the competition and the runaway winner of the Hawks’ best and fairest. Tough, durable and super-competitive, Hawthorn’s new No. 1 midfielder broke the AFL record for total possessions in a home and away season with 787, which included a whopping 50 against Collingwood in round nine. Mitchell also recorded personal bests (in averages) for kicks (14), marks (5.3), handballs (21.8), tackles (6.5), rebound 50s (2.1), clearances (6.3), contested possessions (14.8) and uncontested possessions (21.5). Not surprisingly, he was second in the Brownlow Medal and earned his first All-Australian blazer. 

Player honours: 2nd Brownlow Medal 2017; Hawthorn best and fairest 2017; All-Australian 2017; NAB AFL Rising Star Nominee 2013.

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 25; career votes 51.

Previous AFL club: Sydney (2013-16: 65 games, 38 goals).

Draft history: 2011 NAB AFL Draft 1st round father-son selection (Sydney) No. 21 overall; 2016 NAB AFL Draft traded by Sydney for No. 16 (Todd Marshall), No. 58 (Matt de Boer).
