Adelaide vice-captain Rory Sloane headlines an elite list of nine Crows ranked inside the top 100 Official AFL Player ratings, the second most of any AFL club.

The 28-year-old sits at 10 overall, with Matt Crouch (42) and Hugh Greenwood (59) the next best Crows.

Only Collingwood has more players inside the top 100 with 10.

Richard Douglas (73), Sam Jacobs (74), Rory Laird (86), Eddie Betts (94) and Tom Lynch (96) round out the list while captain Taylor Walker sits just outside at 106.

Sloane is ranked as the league’s seventh best midfielder alongside the likes of Dustin Martin, Patrick Dangerfield and Clayton Oliver.

Betts ranked in the top five for small forwards while Rory Laird sits in the AFL’s best five small-medium defenders.

Greenwood had one of the most rapid rises of any recent Crow, jumping from 409 at the end of the 2017 season to his current position of 59.
