Player Bio

After missing the first month of the year with an achilles complaint, Hibberd was one of the recruits of the season. The attacking defender earned his first All-Australian selection, ranking No. 2 in the AFL for average rebound 50s a game (6.8). Also averaged a career-high 27.4 disposals as his long kicking and courage to consistently back into packs came to the fore. Finished sixth in the best and fairest, but that could easily have been higher considering his worth to the side.

Player honours: All-Australian 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 7; career votes 20.
Previous AFL club: Melbourne (2011-15: 84 games, 11 goals).
Draft history: 2011 NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft 1st round selection (Essendon) No. 4 overall; 2016 NAB AFL Draft traded by Essendon for No. 31 (Josh Begley), No. 63 (Dylan Clarke).
