Followed his breakout 2015 with another consistent season in 2016, being the AFL's leading clearance player with 185 and averaging almost 17 contestested possessions a game. Polled the most votes for the Blues in the Brownlow Medal (18) and finished third in the best and fairest after becoming the second-youngest player to win the award in 2015. Despite receiving more attention from opposition teams, he showed great resilience, strength and maturity, averaging almost 27 disposals a game. Before the start of last season, the former East Fremantle player extended his contract until the end of 2019 and looms as a future captain. 

Draft history: 2013 AFL Draft 1st round selection (Carlton) No.13 overall.
