Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: 
Debut: 2006
Recruited from: Mt Eliza/Dandenong U18
Brownlow Votes: 12

A shining light in a bleak period, winning back-to-back best and fairests (and best team man in 2013) and elevating his game to another level, performing under a heavy tag most weeks. His consistency has been impressive, playing a lone hand at times, averaging 23 disposals a game and keeping his head high when all around him were dropping. Jones battled through a foot injury in the pre-season, but was ready to perform when it mattered. An on-field warhorse, he demands the ball, but can improve his running patterns to have a more positive effect for his team.

Player honours: best and fairest 2012, 2013; 2nd best and fairest 2007; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2006, 2007.

Brownlow Medal: 2013 votes 6; career votes 33.

Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 12 overall.
