Johnson took significant strides last season in his ongoing recovery from his fifth knee reconstruction. For the first time in two-and-a-half years the 24-year-old ran laps of the SCG and is now running unaided, with a steely focus on returning to competitive football in 2017. Johnson’s positive attitude has inspired the Swans, despite the fact he’s been missing from the footy field in recent seasons. If the talented defender can break into the senior side at some stage, it will be one of the greatest comeback stories the AFL has ever seen.

Draft history: 2010 AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Sydney) No. 57 overall.
