There was one captain for the purpose of this exercise, guess who?

Liam Duggan should be in the prime of his career in season 2022 as he will only be 25 years old in that season.
Ben McKay finished sixth in the Kangaroos best and fairest, but has the capability to get better in season 2022.
Ryan Burton is possibly the Power’s most underrated player and should prove why is season 2022.
Changkuoth Jiath he is quality defender who can create run out of defence and should show why in season 2022.
Charlie Ballard of the Suns could improve, if he plays to his optimum level in season 2022.
Nick Hind should get even better in season 2022.
Mitch Duncan of the Cats can go from good to great in season 2022
Ben Keays of the Crows can be regarded as a player in the top echelon of players in season 2022.
Patrick Lipinski of the Magpies will benefit from being versatile in season 2022.
Tim Taranto of the Giants added another string to his bow in season 2021, which should hold him in good stead in season 2022.
Tom McDonald should hit the scoreboard regularly and be more highly respected as a key forward for the Demons in season 2022.
Kane Lambert of the Tigers should be able to string more games together and stay injury free then he will get the recognition that he deserves in season 2022.
Rowan Marshall of the Saints can play to his optimum level, he will get the accolades that he warrants when in season 2022.
Tim English of the Bulldogs will get more forward time and kick a minimum of 30 goals in season 2022.
Isaac Heeney can perform to his capability in season 2022, for the Swans.
Oscar McInerney relished the opportunity of being the number one ruckman for the Lions in season 2021. He can get even better and feature in the AFL All Australian squad in season 2022.
Caleb Serong won the Rising Star Award in season 2020 and finishing fourth in the Dockers best and fairest in season 2021, he is capable of going to another level in season 2022.
George Hewett had a reasonable season for the Swans in season 2021. A change is as good as a holiday and he should improve immensely at the Blues in season 2022
