It’s difficult to rate him highly due to injury but he was managed to perfection in the end. His finals series was exactly what a captain should produce, less emphasis on possessions and more emphasis on the one %’s and leadership. He has developed into a great captain.

Like Dusty will do kicking a goal, Jack will do taking a pack mark or Grimes/Rance have done saving the day down back with an intercept mark, Cotchin turns games with chase down tackles.

In the Prelim he turned the game on Stanley, in the GF he set the tone on Mumford.

While there are many other strings to his bow, this time of his game is almost unique to the competition and wins us big games
“50-29 felt like the game might be over – 35-50 felt like it was over. Geelong would not get a chance to breathe again. Suffocate and surge – that is Richmond’s game. Make it feel like there’s no space, then make it feel like there’s too much space, a transition that happens in a split second”

Gave him a 7

His injury woes this year is the main reason. That and his goal kicking. At times it lets him down

His tackling is elite, sets a standard, sends a mwssage

His leadership makes everyone a better player. Epitomised by his tackling in final series. 10/10 for me

Not just his chase down tackles but also those desperate lunges off the ground to get a hand on the ball and stop the opposition getting a clean take away.

Given some of the past captains we have had we are truly blessed to have Cotch

Freak

But this year I gave a 6, purely because of injuries etc

Played 14 games and a couple of those were impacted on

If he played all year, obviously a higher mark

It all depends on how you rate players.  If you rate Cotchin's year on numbers & averages then you could only give him a 6 or so.  The games missed from injury brought his numbers down. 
But, if you rate Cotchin by the effect he has on the team then you need to consider a rating of 9 plus! 
I just notice that Cotchin has an effect on every player in the team.  He says, "Come on, let's go!" & every single player lifts to a new level.  He connects with every player equally, he leads by example & brings everybody along with him!  He isn't above anybody, he is just there to make everybody better!  For this reason he is one of our greatest ever Captains. 
This year I'll give him a 10!      ;D
Once a Tiger, always a Tiger!  Loud, proud & dangerous!
