Brownlow Votes: 53

The evergreen veteran is 34 in 2019 and has played more than 300 games, but he’s declared he’s in hot pursuit of his best season yet in 2019. McVeigh, who’s this year a chance to surpass Jude Bolton to become the second-most capped Swan behind Adam Goodes, produced a sparkling 2018. The 2012 premiership star averaged 21 disposals from the 19 games he played, and his exceptional ability to read the play, stick to Sydney’s game plan and operate with poise by hand and foot saw him play an integral role at half-back. Expect not only his vast experience, but invaluable direction for the younger Swans, to be crucial to Sydney in 2019 – especially as he’s now a part of a new-look eight-man leadership group.

Draft history: 2002 AFL Draft 1st round selection (Sydney) No. 5 overall.
