While the pre-season draft is rarely used, many clubs have committed to picking up players via the rookie list.
Those include Mark Baguley at Essendon and Tim Broomhead at Collingwood, among others.
But we can also expect some surprising stars to emerge from this draft. Notable names from last year’s rookie draft include Brody Mihocek, Billy Gowers, Bailey Banfield and David Mirra, while in 2016 those picked up in the rookie draft included Jack Henry and Ben Ronke.
The full order for the rookie draft will be confirmed later today.
