The star forward burst back into the AFL last year after the personal issues that forced him to miss the 2015 final series. Franklin was at his athletic best and more importantly looked like he was thoroughly enjoying his footy again. The three-time Coleman Medal winner kicked 81 goals and played every game for the first time since 2008. Added a sixth All-Australian selection his resume and needs just 12 this year to reach 800 career goals and move into the League’s top-10 goal kickers of all time.

Draft history: 2004 AFL Draft 1st round selection (Hawthorn) No. 5 overall; 2013 restricted free agent (Sydney).
