The No.1 pick in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft lived up to the hype last season, finishing third in the NAB AFL Rising Star award being named Carlton's best first-year player. Despite missing two games with an injured shoulder sustained in Round 6 against Essendon, Weitering ranked third at the Blues for contested marks (62) and fourth for one-percenters (87). Played mainly in defence, but showed he could be used effectively in attack. Elite runner, excellent decision-maker and reads the game well with an uncanny ability to take intercept marks. Oozes leadership qualities and is cool under pressure. Extended his contract last year to sign on with the Blues until at least the end of 2021.

Draft history: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Carlton) No.1 overall.
