Hawthorn

One of the fastest rebuilds in recent memories, Alistair Clarkson had his team playing with fire again to finish strong. Interstate wins against West Coast and GWS will have fans eager for next season. For their growth to continue, a lot has been talked about moving on some of their older premiership heroes.

Whether that be trading Isaac Smith, Paul Puopolo or Shaun Burgoyne – the Hawks have an opportunity to bring more young talent through their doors.

The last time the Hawks had a pick inside the top 10 (currently hold No. 10) was back in 2006, and with success of recent picks Worpel (pick 45) and Lewis (pick 76) you just know they will draft accordingly. A healthy Tom Mitchell will only enhance their chances at returning to finals footy.

Isaac Smith’s days at Hawthorn could be numbered.
