Brownlow Votes: -

Always a good performer on the track, he needs to improve his decision-making during games. A hard runner, he fell out of favour after round two and eventually had an up-and-down season, playing just 11 games. He shapes as a running defender who could be an Alan Toovey-type in a good team.

Brownlow Medal:

Draft history: 2011 Rookie Draft selection (Melbourne) No. 14; 2012 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Melbourne) selection No. 71.
