Defender who took his game to another level last season, culminating in his win in the John Nicholls Medal. Providing superb leadership and direction off half-back, Docherty's ability to run and carry the ball was elite, ranking third in the AFL for rebound 50s. Reads the game well, makes good decisions and has strong hands, taking the most marks for Carlton last season. Was named in the 40-man All-Australian squad and won the Blues' most-improved player award. A member of Carlton's seven-man leadership group and contracted until the end of 2018.

Draft history: 2011 AFL Draft 1st round selection (Brisbane Lions) No.12 overall; 2013 AFL Draft traded by Brisbane Lions for No.33 (Tom Cutler).
