Embarking on his second year as Carlton captain, Marc Murphy has grown in leadership and experience.

The skipper had a tough run in 2013, starting the year underdone after a knee injury then suffering another setback with a broken jaw. But he fought through and played a crucial role for the Blues at the business end of the season, while continuing to grow by putting his stamp on the captaincy.

Ahead of the start of season 2014 Murphy declared his intention to remain a Blue for life by signing a new four-year deal.

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