Kane Cornes has named the top 10 upcoming free agents who he believes will be most in demand on SEN.

AFL Media exclusively revealed this year’s 140 free agents, including 10 club captains and a number of stars.

Topping Cornes’ list is Western Bulldog Marcus Bontempelli, who is coming off an All-Australian campaign where he averaged 20.9 disposals, 4.8 tackles and 5.2 clearances per game.

“Similar age, similar abilities, but Marcus Bontempelli is the number one in demand free agent on the list at the moment and there’s some good players,” Cornes said on SEN radio.

Coming in at No. 2 on Cornes list is another player from the 2013 AFL draft – Carlton’s Patrick Cripps. While Cornes believes the Blues skipper will stay put, he ranks him as the second best player who is currently a free agent.

Coming in third is Tigers triple-premiership defender Dylan Grimes, who Cornes declared is “the best defender in the game.”

“Dylan Grimes is the best defender in the game in my opinion. I have him at number three and he’s a free agent and the third most in-demand free agent for mine.”

Rounding out Cornes’ top five is Giant Josh Kelly and Demon Max Gawn.
