Player Bio

Endured a year of speculation about his future before he finally announced he wanted to return to Victoria. After much discussion, the Demons handed over their 2017 first-round pick, a future first-round selection and a future fourth-round pick for him. It was a high price to pay, but Lever proved last year he is one of the best intercept defenders in the game. His ability to come off his man and intercept and launch plays earned him selection in the initial All-Australian squad. Signed a four-year contract with the Demons and has already earned plaudits for his leadership skills.

Previous AFL club: Adelaide (2015-17: 56 games, 3 goals).
Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2015; All-Australian nominee 2017.
Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 1; career votes 1.
Draft history: 2014 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Adelaide) No. 14 overall; 2017 NAB AFL Draft traded by Adelaide for No. 10 (Lochie O’Brien), 2018 1st round selection, 2018 4th round selection.
