A balanced and skillful running defender, Otten has suffered a retched run suffering two ACL knee injuries. After finishing runner up in the NAB Rising Star Award, Otten returned to career best form in 2013. Starting the season in defence, Otten established himself as a key member of the team before becoming Adelaide’s designated swingman. Otten has a natural ability to shut down in defence or move forward to kick goals when required. He was recognised for his terrific 2013 season, receiving the Coaches Award and finishing top five in the Club’s Best and Fairest. After returning through the SANFL in the back half of 2015, Otten had a very good 2016 SANFL season and will be hoping to break back into the senior team in 2017.
