AFL.com.au looked at the players tracking well so far in pre-season. 

CARLTON

Established gun: After an injury-interrupted 2019, where he missed six weeks with concussion and two with a fractured larynx, defender Liam Jones hasn't missed a beat this summer. He returned early to pre-season training, working with the younger players, and has been on the track every day since. He looks leaner and is moving smoothly, with the club tipping him for a big year next season.

Gen next: Blues officials were pleasantly surprised with the output of Will Setterfield in 2019, having arrived at the club with no pre-season under his belt after returning from a ruptured ACL. Now enjoying a full summer of work, the big-bodied midfielder is turning heads at Carlton training. The powerful 21-year-old has stacked on plenty of upper-body weight and looks primed to move into an inside role alongside Patrick Cripps next season.

New faces: Having arrived at Carlton a little bit later than he might have liked through the pre-season draft, Jack Martin (pictured below) has hit the ground running at Ikon Park. The Blues believe the former Suns player will be used in attack next season, where his speed and class will add a new dimension to the club's forward line. Promisingly, his tackling pressure and intensity at the contest is also already impressing a host of his new Blues teammates.
