New faces: Jake Lever is the sole fresh face in the Demons’ best 22 after being acquired from Adelaide.
The 21-year-old key defender is an intercept marking machine and has already established himself as one of the premium backmen in the AFL.
On the fringe: Melbourne’s depth looks impressive on paper, with the likes of Tom Bugg, Sam Frost, Dean Kent and Jake Melksham unable to crack the 22.
