Carlton midfielder Bryce Gibbs isn't sure if he is having his best AFL season.
He thinks it may be his most consistent.
But he knows his best is yet to come.
As his 150th AFL match approaches, Gibbs - the 2006 No.1 draft pick - remains somewhat of a jury-out proposition as to whether he has fulfilled his potential.
The 24-year-old is unquestionably a good player.
Yet Gibbs has often been a victim of his versatility.
He has never really been allowed to settle in one position and reviews of his output for the Blues have been mixed as a result.
"A lot of things that go unnoticed in the public eye get rewarded in the team environment," Gibbs said on Monday.
"That doesn't really bother me too much, what's said about me - good, bad or indifferent.
"I'm enjoying my footy at the moment."
Gibbs has again floated between roles under coach Mick Malthouse, but has received plenty of praise internally for his work.
He has also proved a durable recruit, missing just a handful of games since his AFL debut in 2007.
"I still think I've got a lot of improvement left in me," Gibbs said as his milestone looms in Saturday's clash with the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.
"It's been good this year, I've had another few different roles under Mick and his coaching staff.
"The best is still to come. Hopefully I can keep going and keep improving, which I know I can."
