Sam Mitchell

Sam Mitchell has been one of the most prolific Brownlow Medal vote getters over the past decade of AFL. He is the general of the Hawthorn midfield and has finished runner up in the Brownlow Medal on multiple occasions.

Since 2006 he has polled double digits every season, with the exception of an injury plagued season in 2014. During that period he has polled in 89 of 213 games at a rate of 41.8%, collecting a whopping 192 votes. He has polled 204 votes in total during his career.

This year we have him finishing in 7th position on 21 votes. There is a period of games between Round 5-10 where he is unlikely to poll any votes, which could prove to be his undoing. But Mitchell is a vote magnet, so it will take a brave punter to write him off.
