Junior Clubs: Prince Alfred College (SA)
Debut: -
Recruited from: North Adelaide (SA)
Brownlow Votes: -

The 23-year-old is charging into 2019 off the back of arguably his most impressive season to date. Hewett, who had played 71 of a possible 73 AFL games ahead of the 2019 season, continued to thrive in his transition from the forward line to the midfield and developed a reputation as one of the competition’s best taggers. The no-frills on-baller played crucial shut-down roles on past Brownlow Medal winners Nat Fyfe, Dustin Martin and Tom Mitchell, as well as a number of other midfield guns.

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