Best chance: Tom Doedee

In his third season on the Crows' list, the 2015 first-round draft pick looks set to get his chance as Jake Lever's replacement in defence. Looked handy in the JLT Series game against Fremantle with his ability to grab intercept marks and take the opposition's third tall forward. Yet to debut.

Another first-round pick, Jordan Gallucci, should also get more opportunities this season as a half-forward taking over from Charlie Cameron. Gallucci, 19, played just one game last season, making his debut against the Brisbane Lions in round nine.

Other contenders: Darcy Fogarty (yet to debut), Jordan Gallucci (one game)

Past winners: Daniel Talia (2012)
