David Vernon

The powerful small forward lost four weeks to a hamstring strain in 2018 and struggled upon his return. But found his groove late in the season and played some great footy in the run home to the finals, booting three goals in the vital round 23 win over Sydney. Like a few of his teammates, he will be disappointed with his finals output, but averaging 4.2 tackles and a goal a game, the club was happy to recontract him for another 12 months. Now 31, he is probably a year-to-year proposition.

Player honours: premiership sides 2013, 2014, 2015.

Brownlow Medal: 2018 votes 1; career votes 4.

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