The No.1 national draftee of 2015 was the youngest of Carlton’s seven to feature in all senior matches through last season – all the more meritorious given that he worked his way through a flat period. Considered an old head on young shoulders, 2018 looms large for the capable defender in the No.23 guernsey.

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