At the same point in their career Lynch is ahead, Hawkins was a spud for most of his early years playing for Geelong even when they were the best side in the league, while Lynch played for completely terrible sides
Hawkins was the back-up / 2nd ruckman for most of the first 5 years of his career. He was never settled as a stay at home forward until his 6th season.

imo, he's just had his best season by some margin.

Champion Data also said Zac Smith was the 10th best ruckman in the league, and he wasn't seen at AFL level after Round 9 last year, even after Rhys Stanley was injured.
LOL ... Champion Data ... and stats in general ;)
Can be used whichever way to suit any argument and make any player appear better than Player X.
When it comes down to it, the naked eye is the best judge of footy talent.
