Aliir, who came to Australia as a refugee from Sudan, had a breakout season last year. The 22-year-old played 13 games, mainly in the second half of the season, starring in defence with his intercept marking and excellent decision-making. A knee injury, suffered in the Swans’ preliminary final win over Geelong, cost Aliir a place in the Grand Final. He was sorely missed against the Western Bulldogs. The athletic big man looks to be a star in the making and won the Swans’ most improved player award last year.

Draft history: 2013 AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Sydney) No. 44 overall.
