A horror end to the season put a downer on Parker’s year but it didn’t stop him continuing his push to be considered among the AFL’s elite midfielders. Five goals and 31 possessions against Geelong in round seven was the highlight of an outstanding season, but a broken leg against Collingwood in round 20 not only ended his year, but cost the Swans during the finals. As tough as they come, Parker was on target to play in the preliminary final should his side have made it, despite having a metal plate in his ankle. The youngest player to be voted into the club’s leadership group, Parker is the Swans’ next captain in waiting.

Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Sydney) No. 40 overall.
