After winning Sydney’s best and fairest in 2008, Jarrad McVeigh was sixth in 2009 and fourth last year.
Now regarded as an elite player, he is a hard-running midfielder in his own right after spending several seasons as a tagger.
A local product, he has developed into a dangerous goal kicker and his hard work around the packs is critical to the Swans’ fortunes.
Player honours: best and fairest 2008; International Rules Series 2010; Swans co-captain.
Brownlow Medal: 2010 votes 5; career votes 20.
Draft history: 2002 National AFL Draft 1st round selection (Sydney) No. 5 overall.
