Josh Kennedy

Josh Kennedy was originally drafted to Hawthorn in 2006 under a father-son pick, as the son of superstar forward John Kennedy Snr. He came with huge wraps, but after only managing 35 games over three seasons, he made a move to Sydney in 2010.

He really became a genuine superstar of the comp back around 2012 and he knows how to get Brownlow Medal votes. Since 2012, he has polled 79 votes from 86 games, polling in 34 of these at a rate of 39.5%. That puts him amongst the top tier.

Kennedy actually won our Phantom Brownlow count in 2014, however this year he slowed down a bit. He had a slow opening to the year and is predicted to poll in just 1 of the 7 games. This will make it very tough for him to win.
