Patrick Weckert was highly touted coming into 2023 off the back of an incredible debut at Reserves level in 2022. In the match against North Adelaide, the schoolboy kicked 8.1 from 10 kicks. That held him in good stead for this season, though he did not quite hit the same heights. Weckert turned out thrice in the top flight for a combined eight disposals, three marks and one goal, before running out the remainder of his season in the Under 18s and Reserves.

Still, his aerial ability - 5.6 per game and more than one contested mark per game - was his go-to weapon. That, along with his set shot goalkicking proved influential, and he earned a place in the South Australian Under 18 team. A readymade third tall of sorts, it will be a case of whether or not Weckert can improve beyond the more traditional forward role of mark and goal given his size. He is more of a rookie prospect now, but could be a player teams take a punt on.
