Recruited from: North Adelaide (SA)

Hewett didn’t have to wait long for his chance in 2016, debuting in Round 1 following two years of development in the NEAFL. He was a fantastic contributor in his 24 games, kicking 18 goals as a half-forward. Valued for his tackling pressure and finishing skills, the crafty forward will look to build on his game further with another big pre-season. The departure of Tom Mitchell might open the door for more midfield opportunities where Hewett has shown plenty at NEAFL level.

Draft history: 2013 AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Sydney) No. 32 overall.
