Player Bio

At a Glance

Drafted: 2014 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Adelaide) No. 14 overall
Previous AFL clubs: Adelaide (2015-17: 56 games).
Recruited from: Romsey (Vic)/Calder U18/Adelaide

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.
