Defend Jacob Ryan (28) tied for their first pick but got there in the runoff. Glenelg stands as a cult figure with his young, long blonde tresses but is also a good one-on-one defender who is calm under pressure. They rewarded the small midfielder Joe Richards (48) for the 23-year-old’s perseverance from Wangaratta, who he played during the former prime minister Pie Ben Reid era. He strengthened his hands for the highly rated 2023 audition, giving up the number 30 pick for Carlton’s future runner-up.


The Dons turned down some big offers to protect and secure their first pick. Elijah Tsatas (5), a larger-bodied, smooth-moving midfield ball magnet who was not born when the club won its final final against Mattaes Phillipou. An offer came late enough alwyn davey (45) For Adrian Dodoro to invest lewis hayes (25), brother of Port Adelaide punk Sam Hayes, as a key advocate for the future. Hayes is known for his ability to pick the right time to mark or break, and he has time to add to his 84-pound body to compete with the big boys. The feel-good story is provided by the Davey brothers. Alwyn relegated to third round Jayden Davey (54) was determined by his final selection returning from two anterior cruciate ligament tears.



With Dockers’ diluted draft shipping, he had one eye on the future and one eye on the present. Inside Hugh Davies (33) found a young key defensive player they hoped could develop under the veteran support of Alex Pearce, Luke Ryan and Brennan Cox. Tom Emmett (41) is a tough forward – an area where the club is strong. Ruckmann Max Knobel (42), Brisbane Lions, Richmond and St Kilda’s tall man, son of Trent Knobel, is a project player under the established names of Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson. Dockers should have a role in mind for the hard worker Corey Wagner (57), delisted by North and Melbourne but returning to the AFL ranks after a strong season for Port Melbourne in the VFL.


The cats skimmed through the trading season when they won the Jack Bowes payroll draw, which came with Gold Coast’s top 10 picks. It was an extraordinary result after winning the prime ministership just weeks ago. Geelong Falcons midfielder jhye clark (8) was instantly associated with Geelong’s award-winning selection. That’s exactly how it played out, the local product already adored by retired great Joel Selwood. This arrogant comparison owes to his stopping ability and intensity of work. The Cats’ only other pick was the Norwood forward phoenix guard (52). Foster was impressed by the opening of South Australia’s AFL under-18 championship after West Coast new thug Harry Barnett was ostracized with COVID-19.

The Suns used only one pick in the national audition, but by counting they secured the Gippsland Power captain. outdoor humphrey (6). After early speculation that they were interested in Western Australia’s Reuben Ginbey, Humphrey was contracted as the Gold Coast man in the past two weeks.

A knee injury interrupted his season, but a dominating finish set him in top 10 status. Another teen gem for Stuart Dew’s growing collection.

key forward harun cadman (1) Recruitment expert Adrian Caruso’s five-man rookie team made the headlines after the Giants won the top pick in a four-club mega-deal in October. Cadman is the long-term goal of a GWS team that puts too much trust in Jesse Hogan and Toby Greene. academy midfielder Harry Rowston (16) was always tied to the club, but Sydney’s early bid got a cat among the pigeons. little speedster darcy jones (21) boasts of having qualities that could make an instant impact on new coach Adam Kingsley.

Other Chargers Jack O’Sullivan (46) is a tough midfielder and bailey mcdonald (51) a defender, completed the Hawks’ distance.


long forward Matthew Jefferson (15) It was rumored that Demons would be the first round pick, but it wasn’t as simple as it sounds. List boss Tim Lamb and hiring manager Jason Taylor have typically been aggressive in trying to improve their draft positions. It was believed that Bailey Humphrey would be their target if they managed to pick Essendon’s best pick from their superiors. Jefferson appears to be a long-term offensive partner for last year’s first-round pick, Jacob Van Rooyen, and was a regular goalkeeper at all levels last season. Melbourne’s only other pick used in Peel Thunder key defender Jed Adams (38) will have time to thrive behind Steven May, Jake Lever, Harry Petty and their friends.

Tom McCallum It was Port’s first choice as they wanted to add depth to the defense after abducting Esava Ratugolea from Geelong during the trading period. The long-back from Hobart is a wiry defender who can play long or short and is an excellent sign. His father, Scott, was a legend at Clarence and is in Tasmania’s Hall of Fame. The club then went for two players over 200 centimeters. Tom Scully and Kyle Marshall with both speculative selections with athletic characteristics.



He entered the draft after the Melbourne coaching team left the building in pick 49 after trading Jacob Hopper and Tim Taranto. Again, cabbage master He can always claim to be the Tigers’ first pick at the 2022 national auditions. A running defender who can cross lines and score higher on many guesses. Steel Green He was once an avid sailor, but took his name from Steely Dan rather than Christopher Cross. He’s a small but ferocious midfielder who’ll get the Tigers grunts.

Swans received this selection from Hawthorn during the trade period. Caleb Mitchell An elite runner from the country of Victoria, shaped as a wingman.


In a vital blueprint for the West Coast, reuben ginbey and Elijah Hewett The club is leading a high-quality crop as it aims to renew the midfield that led them to the 2018 flag. Both local players are dynamic players and Ginbey is a tough player who can escape the congestion to find a place. Hewett is poised to explode and has a lot of development inside him as he only declared himself in national championships before playing senior football with the Swan Districts. Then they used the pick 23 Harry Barnett, is the first punk chosen to audition because they want to replace champion tall man Nic Naitanui. of Maffra Coby Burgiel Another fast player who will have no problem moving around the country and is shaping up as a potential winger.
