A surprise omission from the round one team for balance reasons last season, Burton was back the next week and immediately earned the NAB AFL Rising Star nomination, eventually finishing second overall. Burton settled into the backline where he averaged 3.8 exits a game. He was sixth for total possessions and was one of only two Hawks to average more than 20 possessions and have a disposal efficiency of more than 80 per cent. Hawthorn loved his ability to read the play and to counter attack and his two long goals in the upset away win over Adelaide in round 14 were exquisite. He signed another contract extension through to the end of 2020, but in the meantime, a move to the midfield might be on the agenda this year.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2017. 

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 2; career votes 2.

Draft history: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Hawthorn) No. 19 overall.
