Kade Simpson’s courage and consistency saw the vice-captain take out the 2013 John Nicholls Medal as Carlton’s Best and Fairest.

After being recast as a defender, Simpson led the Blues in disposals last season, took the second most marks, and was just one of five players who played in every game.

He capped off the year by playing in his 200th AFL game in the semi-final against Sydney at the SCG.

Draft history: 2002 National AFL Draft 4th round selection No. 45 overall.
