Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Brighton Grammar
Debut: 2009
Recruited from: Sandringham U18
Brownlow Votes: 1

Watts has a three-year contract, a coach he is happy with and enough life lessons to carry him through his career. He can play, as he showed twice against the Western Bulldogs, but he needs to become a consistent performer. Watts is hardening up in his approach and expect him to show his talent playing through the midfield. He has a strong body, good agility and uses the ball brilliantly by foot. It was a sign of loyalty from Watts to stay at Melbourne where he is popular and likes his teammates. There is little doubt about his talent and he seems to be improving.

Brownlow Medal: 2013 votes 3; career votes 7.

Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 1 overall.
