After a slow start to 2016, the son of Carlton's triple premiership great Jim Buckley finished the year strongly. Spent a fair part of the season at VFL level before regaining his senior spot for the final seven games - highlighted by his performance in the Round 22 win against Melbourne, gathering 12 disposals and kicking three goals. Has plenty of pace and has penetration in his kicking. Given a one-year contract contract at the end of last year and will be looking to establish himself as a regular senior player.

Draft history: 2011 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round Father/Son selection No.62 overall.
