Winner of the 2008 Brownlow Medal and that’s about it really. A really good player when he was fit and at his best, however; we didn’t see much of that.

The 2014 Brownlow Medal went to Priddis, who was nowhere near the favourites to win the award. However, that doesn’t mean he didn’t deserve the win. He is also a dual best & fairest winner and a former captain of the club.

7. Nat Fyfe

Just like Cotchin this man was handed the 2012 Brownlow Medal after it was removed from Watson. Mitchell was incredible at his best winning 4 premierships, 5 best & fairest’s and 4 All-Australians.

5. Dustin Martin

Games: 177 Goals: 185

This man won the Brownlow Medal while having the most bet on grounds ever with 11. Martin is a best & fairest winner and a dual All-Australian winner. Martin can almost not be tackled and is the type of player who can win a game off the kick of his boot.

4. Patrick Dangerfield

Games: 202 Goals: 232

This guy was always going to win a Brownlow some day. The 2016 Brownlow Medalist was and still is an incredible player. A dual best & fairest winner, as well as a five-time All-Australian winner, Dangerfield is a great player.

3. Dane Swan

Games: 258 Goals: 211

In 2010 and 2011 this guy couldn’t be stopped, anything under 40 disposals and 2 goals was an ordinary output for him back then. The premiership player was also a five-time All-Australian winner and a three-time best & fairest winner.

2. Chris Judd

A dual Brownlow Medal winner and arguably one of the greatest if not the greatest player of the 21st century. The premiership player captained two clubs, won six All-Australians and five best & fairest awards.

1. Garry Ablett jr

Games: 302 Goals: 386

Honestly, easily one of the greatest players who has ever played the game. Garry Ablett may have even surpassed his father and is easily one of the greatest Brownlow winners ever, which is probably why he won two. In addition, this great man has won eight All-Australians and six best & fairest awards.
