After making his debut in round four against North Melbourne, O’Brien played in 17 of the next 18 games, missing only against Port Adelaide in round 15. Finished the season strongly and played his part in the Blues’ wins against Essendon and Gold Coast. Playing on a wing, he impressed with his penetrating kicking and running power. A good decision-maker who takes a strong mark and is dangerous around goals. Extended his contract for another two years last April, re-signing with Carlton until the end of 2021. Will be looking to build on a promising first season.

Draft history: 2017 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Carlton) No.10 overall.
