David Zaharakis is an Essendon midfielder who was drafted to the club with pick 23 in the 2008 National Draft. He has now established himself as one of the key midfielders at the club and is certainly a star for the future.
Zaharakis is a poor Brownlow Medal vote getter though, polling just 8 votes from 85 career games. He has polled in just 4 of those 85 matches which is a rate of 5%.
Despite standing out for the Bombers, Zaharakis just seems to struggle to poll votes. Be it that the umpires do not notice him or he fails to make a solid impact, he may be a player to perhaps stay clear of in Brownlow Medal punting.
