 Player Information
  Mitchell Brown was recruited in the strong 2006 draft as a potential key position player (his twin, Nathan was taken at pick 10 by Collingwood). A surprise call up for round one at the SCG, Brown played a good debut game, but with competition for spots in the team tough early he was relegated to the WAFL, and injuries prevented him making it back to the senior team.

Since then Brown has been the ultimate up and down player - one week in the Eagles, the next back at East Freo, the next back at the top flight. Always the first recalled when a tall defender is required, Brown has also been the first omitted when one of the other tall defenders comes back into the team. With only 50 games over seven seasons (though he sat 2008 out with an ACL) his career has not quite gone as well as might have been hoped earlier but Brown has at times looked like he will become the solid defender the Eagles will require in future years. After flirting with leaving the club at the end of 2012, Brown later re-signed with the club for the long term.

By 2015, Brown was a regular in the team again and had the weight of expectations heaped upon his shoulders when MacKenzie went down with a knee injury. However when given this chance to shine, fate cruelly took Brown out with the same injury (his second ACL), and he had to sit out the season as his teammates found form. Will have to fight his way back into the team.
