In two seasons at Ikon Park, Liam Jones has yet to cement a regular senior spot since being traded from the Western Bulldogs at the end of 2014. The key forward played eight games and kicked nine goals last season, with his best performance coming against Fremantle in Round 5 when he kicked two last-quarter goals to help the Blues secure their first win of the season. Can take a strong contested mark and is explosive on the lead, but needs to work on his consistency and ground play. In the last year of his contract and is looking forward to a big season.

Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Western Bulldogs) No.32 overall; 2014 NAB AFL traded by Western Bulldogs to Carlton for No.46 (Caleb Daniel).
