A series of injuries prevented the 2011 draft pick from making his AFL debut until round 10 last season, but it was worth the wait.

Picking up 18 disposals and a goal in his first outing, Mitchell then tallied 31 touches and 10 tackles in his second game, a 77-point rout of Adelaide, to earn a NAB AFL Rising Star nomination. 

He suffered torn ankle ligaments against Carlton in a semi-final, but did more than enough in his 14 games for the year to show he is a young star in the making.

Draft history: 2011 NAB AFL Draft 1st round father-son selection (Sydney) No. 21 overall.

2014 Coaches Call

His 2013 season was not a surprise for anyone of us at the club. Once he broke into the side and once he got his body right and fitness up to play AFL footy, we knew what he was capable of. He’s an elite ball winner and in 2013 he showed little snippets of what’s to come.

His pre-season has been really good given that he had ankle surgery. He’s done it well and he’s come back in really good knick, even though he’s been injured. He’s now starting to run and get involved in skills and he’s been pretty professional in the way he’s gone about it.

We hope in 2014 that he can step up. He played mainly forward but I think we’ll see him in the midfield a little bit this year, so he’ll start to learn what it’s like to be an AFL midfielder. Hopefully 2014 will just be an improvement on where he’s come from because we certainly know that he’s got the ability, so he’s just got to put it out there in the games.
