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.
9. Jack Sinclair
After polling no Brownlow votes in his first 119 games, Sinclair managed to record nine votes in 2022 to rank as the third-highest vote-getter for the Saints this year.
Sinclair was awarded with an All-Australian blazer in 2022 off the back of his stellar season in the red, white and black, where he ranked highly in the competition for kicks, bounces, intercepts and disposals to be a prolific presence in the Saints' rearguard.
Sinclair was also able to move further up the field for Brett Ratten when called upon, breaking lines through the midfield and setting up teammates in the forward third of the field.
