Marc Murphy led from the front both on and off the field in a challenging year for Carlton in 2015.

Murphy topped the Blues for disposals last season, averaging nearly 27 per game, as well as ranking No. 1 for kicks, averaging 15.32 per match. The 28-year-old also came second for contested possessions and third for effective disposals.

His efforts saw Murphy finish runner-up in last year’s John Nicholls Medal, with only one vote separating him from winner Patrick Cripps.

After undergoing shoulder surgery at the end of the season, the 200-gamer will be fully fit heading into 2016.

Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Carlton) No. 1 overall.
