Reid emerged as the club’s ‘Mr Fix-It’ last year. More than capable of leading out of the goalsquare or taking big grabs at centre half-forward, the 23-year-old was also regularly shifted into defence when needed.

Whether it’s as a loose man in defence, quelling a rampaging key forward or even helping out in the ruck, Reid handled it all, and will be looking for much of the same in 2015.

Draft history: 2009 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Sydney) No. 38 overall.
