Former Brisbane Lions captain and On The Couch panellist Jonathan Brown says that Melbourne star young forward, Jesse Hogan is a once in a 20 year type player and is worth 15 million dollars. 

Speaking on his weekly spot on Fox Footy's On The Couch, Brown says a team should offer him a ten year deal worth $15mil. 

“This bloke is a once in a 20-year player,” Brown said.

“Does a side have the confidence and I suppose the strength to offer Hogan $15 million over 10 years?

“I think that’s what it will take. It’s not ridiculous … the salary cap will go up as part of the next TV rights deal.”

Fellow panel member and former Hawthorn forward Jason Dunstall agreed with Brown's views.

“I think Jesse Hogan is the sort of guy you build a team around. If someone is bold enough, they can do something pretty special," Dunstall said  

Brown also labelled Hogan the number one player in the competition under the age of 21, who Brown also had Patrick Cripps, Isaac Heeney, Marcus Bontempelli and surprisingly Jacob Weitering, who has played just the five games.
