Josh Drummond (born 19 April 1983) is an Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League. He is a rebounding defender and occasional wingman, with a long and accurate left-foot kick.

Drummond was recruited by the Brisbane Lions through the 2003 Rookie Draft from the Northern Eagles, after two dominant seasons at centre half back. He won the Eagles Best & Fairest in 2003. He was elevated to the Brisbane Lions senior list in Round 8, 2005 when he made his debut against Adelaide. After missing the early part of 2007 through injury, he became one of the Lions' most important players in 2007, with an impressive ability to hit targets from the kick out.

Josh Drummond's left foot kicks are recognised among the most penetrating and damaging in the AFL. Repeated soft tissue injuries, particularly to his quadriceps, have hampered Drummond's career to date. He also missed a significant amount of football after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament during the 2010 season.
