So yeah, I like this sort of thing, some numbers will be tough, others easy (I mean Matt Guelfi is clearly the best #35 haha). Feel free to disparage my opinion but here goes:

1. Phil Davis (HM Steven May, Nick Vlaustin, Travis Boak)
2. Nathan Jones (HM Jordan De Goey, Brad Crouch, Zach Tuohy)
3. Tom Mitchell (HM Stephen Coniglio, Andrew Gaff, Marc Murphy)
4. Dustin Martin (HM Toby Greene, Marcus Bontempelli, Brodie Grundy, Gary Ablett jr)

42. Adam Saad (HM Tom Jonas, Liam Picken)
43. Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti (HM Aaron Hall, Dan Houston)
44. Jake Lloyd (HM Willie Rioli, Tom Stewart)

Agree most of that list, my changes would be:

2 - Jordan De Goey, Jones would have been the best for a while but he’s just not that great anymore. He can’t find nor win the ball as often and his ball use is getting worse. De Goey’s finish to the 2018 season was top of the line.

8 - Jack Riewoldt and comfortably I reckon. Not only is he one of the most consistent goal kickers in the league, he’s a spiritual captain at one of the league’s best sides and does a fair share of setting up his team mates as well

10 - Scott Pendlebury who you didn’t lost at all so I assume you forgot about him but I’d back him over that group. Hardly an inspired finals series but his H&A season was still a very strong one.

19 - Jack Gunston’s consistency puts him above Lynch. Lynch’s 2016 season was elite in every way but after that, I reckon Gunston has played five or six seasons that have been better than any other of Lynch’s.

26 - I dig Hooker but Hawkins and Parker I reckon are definitely ahead, with Hawkins my choice at #1. Every time you think Hawkins is on the decline, he just hits his straps again and again.

29 - Whilst I don’t rate Laird as highly as others, I’d still take his accumulation and safe use over anybody else in that group

32 - maybe biased I don’t know but Stephen Hill has been off his game for a while now and I’d personally prefer Hoskin-Elliott who is coming off a 40 goal season

39 - Justin Westhoff has made the title ‘utility’ his own and whilst Jetta is still a reliable sh*t down defender, he’s been exposed a few times recently and it’s been costly

42 - Tom Jonas is one of the league’s best tall defenders. I don’t think this one is close.

Surprised Grimes didn't get an honorable mention over Tuohy, but I like Tuohy so won't complain.
Love that Jayden Short got an HM.

Like the list, most my changes would be for HMs so spot on I reckon.

Ones that I'd have different :

1) Liam Ryan - he's an absolute star. I'd actually have Phil Davis last on that list and be tossing up between May and Vlaustin.
6) I'd take Sicily before Yeo, just.
8) Jack Riewoldt.
13) Luke Ryan.
18) Sam Walsh (on this latest season's output)
19) Jack Gunston.
29) Cam Guthrie. Just had an AA season.
32) I'd still have W H-E over Hill.

Sorry brah, but he's really not.

Slightly better stats over 12 games (one where Dusty got subbed off with concussion) doesn't erase 4 years of legendary performances from Dusty.
Not much will ever topple what Dusty has managed to do in the last half-decade, so by your logic he will always be the best current player ever.

I remember when I was a kid playing on ps2 I could’ve named probably every player in the entire league from their number.. these days other than my own side I’d probably know 10 guys numbers.

Might give this thread a shot when I wake up but I’ll have to use google to work out #

It's a cursed number at Hawthorn but Dylan Moore appears to have shaken it this season. Third in our goal kicking. Rated elite in goals and above average for his position in 2021. Would have to be close for number 36.

Would prefer Perryman, Pickett or Brennan Cox personally

Is this on 2021 form or just in general?

Not saying Moore is the pick, just that he's thrown his name in the hat and had a great year that's probably flown under the radar for non-Hawthorn fans.

I don’t think as many people are watching Hawthorn games this year as years gone by but there are other guys I’d be taking before him even at your own club ie Jiath who’s only a year older.
