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

The skipper – one of the elite midfielders in AFL – averaged 24 disposals in the 20 games he played in the 2014 season.

Despite suffering broken bones in two courageous on-field acts in 2013, Murphy increased his attack on the ball in 2014 to average an impressive five tackles per game and take out Carlton’s Ruthless Award.

His fantastic season was recognised with a runner-up finish in the John Nicholls Medal.
 
Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Carlton) No. 1 overall.
