Name: Jacob Wehr
Position: Running defender
Drafted from: Woodville-West Torrens
Jacob Wehr is a late-blooming running-defender who was part of Woodville-West Torrens premiership-winning SANFL side in 2020. He’s a classy left foot line-breaker who was one of the Eagles’ prime ball users this year, renowned for pinpoint accuracy and clean possessions by both hand and foot. Wehr only made his senior debut in the middle of this season and went on to play an important role in the final 14 games of the year which saw the 22-year old rocket into draft contention.
Jacob had a strong year in the SANFL across half-back and was part of the premiership-winning Eagles team. He is a strong runner and nice left-foot kick and gives some flexibility to push up onto the wing. - National recruiting manager Adrian Caruso
Seems like a third option who is capable of taking Zac Williams' place on half-back.
