Player Bio

Player Bio

The versatile Mitch Brown was initially drafted by Geelong before returning to the VFL. His form saw him selected in the VFL Team of the Year and a few months later the Bombers picked him up with the 54th pick in the 2015 Draft. 

Throughout the 2016 season, Brown was used in defence and attack.  He kicked 20 goals (third overall at Essendon) but also proved an astute reader of the play when stationed in defence. 

Brown played 21 games for the season and finished the year strongly.  He collected at least 21 disposals in each of his last four games and in a three-week stretch between rounds 20-22 he averaged 14 marks per game.  He took 18 marks in the match against Geelong, which is the second biggest haul by a Bomber ever.  Capping his strong season, Brown finished in sixth place in the Crichton Medal.
