Clubs are in discussions over potential pick swaps as Fremantle mulls its call with the first pick on night two of the NAB AFL Draft.

Fremantle are in a very strong position as they hold pick No.21 after the first round of selections were completed on Wednesday night, with local midfielder Matt Johnson still on the table having received interest from within the top 10.

Victorian pair Josh Goater, a half-back/midfielder, and Blake Howes, a wingman/forward, are also expected to come into consideration with picks early in the second round, as well as speedy half-forward/midfielder Sam Butler and small forward Jesse Motlop.

Johnson was in the mix for the Hawks' pick No.7 before they sided with Josh Ward, and the Hawks hold picks 23 and 26 heading into the second night. After Fremantle at No.21 is North Melbourne, while Geelong has picks 24 and 25 after securing the latter in a deal with the Western Bulldogs.

As in the 2018-19 drafts which were held over two days, picks at the top of the second round become of huge value to clubs searching to push up the board and grab the players who were left undrafted on the opening night.


It could mean if Fremantle was happy with two or three options available to them, the Dockers could slide back down the draft board and in turn pick up a strong draft selection for this year or next simply for moving back.

The quality players available to Fremantle vindicates the club's stance during the trade period of not using the first pick of the second night of the draft in a deal to land Jordan Clark from Geelong

Bids are expected to come in the first 10 or so selections tonight for Greater Western Sydney Academy prospect Josh Fahey and St Kilda Next Generation Academy product Mitchito Owens, with the Blues linked to a bid on half-back Fahey and the Tigers a chance to bid on Owens.

Ruckman Toby Conway will come into contention for Geelong and also the Blues, while the Hawks have done plenty of work on Butler and could be a chance to nab him. Tyler Sonsie, too, will be in the mix for Hawthorn's selections but could also be available for the Tigers' stretch of three straight picks from No.28-30. 

Connor MacDonald is also a player of interest in the early stages of Thursday's draft, with the Kangaroos, Hawks, Geelong and Carlton all weighing up the strong-bodied midfielder, while Motlop could also come into contention for the Dockers, Roos and Blues. 

Motlop is tied to the Dockers as a NGA player but the club only gets access to him after pick 40 under metropolitan NGA rules, so if the Dockers wanted him they could need to grab him before the Roos consider.

Skilful midfielder Zac Taylor is another in the mix for the Blues but could also be available at the Swans with their pick No.33.
