2022 saw the AFL uncover a host of stars, while some well-known names strengthened their place and pedigree thanks to stellar campaigns.
So, we've attempted to compile a list ranking the 10 players that improved the most this season.
This list takes a look at where these players were positioned at the conclusion of the 2021 season and how they rank 12 months on.
10. Mason Redman
Redman was a consistent performer for Ben Rutten this year, averaging 21.2 disposals, 6.2 marks, 4.35 rebounds 50s and 1.9 intercept marks per game.
The fiery flanker would earn a top-four spot in Essendon's best and fairest count, with those inside the four walls at Tullamarine well aware of the ability the 25-year-old possesses.
A purple patch for Redman came between Rounds 14 and 20, where he recorded over 30 possessions in three matches as the Bombers began to find some success in a difficult year.
A free agent in 2023, the Bombers will be keen to lock away Redman's signature before it's too late.
