Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: 
Debut: 2008
Recruited from: Northern Knights
Brownlow Votes: 3

Grimes started the season well, but a heavy tackle against Carlton in round six hurt his shoulder and put him out for eight games. He struggled after that, battling hard to provide depth in the midfield. He is not a natural midfielder and has kicked just two goals in the past two seasons. However, he is a quality defender who should be allowed to settle across half-back now that the Demons have gone about addressing their midfield resources. The 24-year-old shapes as a courageous defender in the Andrew Mackie mould and is a respected leader.

Player honours: 2nd best and fairest 2012; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2009; co-captain since 2012.

Brownlow Medal: career votes 9.

Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 14 overall.
