Draft History:  2010 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Gold Coast) No. 49 overall

Tasmanian Jacob Gillbee is a super-fit small forward who applies plenty of defensive pressure.

Gillbee had an outstanding NEAFL season in 2011, which saw him crowned the GC SUNS NEAFL player of the year. However, he had to wait until the final round to make his debut and finished with eight disposals and a goal against Hawthorn.

2012 followed a similar path, with Gillbee having to wait until Round 22 to break into the senior line-up. He finished the season strongly against Adelaide, gathering 14 disposals and kicking a goal. 

Gillbee will need to continue getting stronger to command a regular place in the senior side, and will want to cement his spot in 2013.
