Despite playing just three games in 2014, Matthew Watson’s finish to the season suggested bigger things were set to come in a new role for the first-round selection in the 2010 National Draft.

Used primarily as a defender in his three seasons with the Blues, Watson switched to the forward line in the final match of the 2014 season, booting four goals in the draw with Essendon.

Boasting a strong mark and raking left foot, Watson could be a wildcard in Carlton’s attacking weaponry in 2015.
 
Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Carlton) No. 18 overall.
