Carlisle emerged as one of the future starts of the AFL with an outstanding season for the Bombers last year. The versatile tall started the year in defence and became Essendon’s No. 1 backman. In a string of games he took on and beat the opposition’s best forwards, including Fremantle’s Matthew Pavlich, Collingwood’s Travis Cloke and Richmond’s Jack Riewoldt. Mid-year he also moved to attack with great success, being the match-winner against Carlton and West Coast with crucial goals. The 22-year-old’s aerial ability, game sense and competitiveness make him perhaps the club’s most exciting long-term prospect.
