Dylan Clarke was selected with pick 63 in the 2016 National Draft. The tough inside-midfielder is a ball magnet and impresses with his contested disposals and awareness in tight.
Clarke made his AFL debut in Round 9, 2018, and was his only game for the season as he played the year in the reserves, eventually finishing third in the VFL Best and Fairest. Clarke returned to the senior side in the middle of 2019, lining up on Patrick Cripps and holding him to one of the quietest games of his career. He then picked up a Rising Star nomination a week later.
With his ability to line up as a midfielder or a run with player, Clarke looms as a frightening opponent for midfielders around the competition.
