The 2016 AFL draft consisted of the various periods where the 18 clubs in the Australian Football League (AFL) could trade and recruit players following the completion of the 2016 AFL season. Additions to each club's playing list are not allowed at any other time during the year.

The key dates for the trading and drafting periods were:[1]

  • The free agency offer period; held between 7 October and 19 October. Three further free agency periods were held for delisted players, between 1 November and 8 November, 10 November to 18 November, and 26 November to 27 November,
  • The trade period; held between 10 October and 20 October,
  • The 2016 national draft; held on 25 November, at the Hordern Pavilion, which will include live bidding for academy and father-son selections.
  • The 2017 pre-season draft; which was to be held on 28 November, but was cancelled when all clubs declined to take part, and
  • The 2017 rookie draft; which was held on 28 November.

Retirements and delistings[edit]

2016 national draft[edit]

The Brisbane Lions received a priority pick at the end of the first round (pick 19) after a request by the club to the AFL commission was accepted. It was the first time a priority pick was given to a club since the rules regarding priority selections were changed in 2012.[144] This pick was later on-traded to Port Adelaide as part of the Pearce Hanley trade to Gold Coast,[20] before the Sydney Swans ended up with it by the trade deadline.[145]

A change was made to the rules concerning academy and father-son selections which allowed clubs to begin the draft with only as many draft picks as it had empty positions on its playing list. This was intended to end the practice which had taken place the previous year in which clubs with academies had traded down the draft order to accumulate a large number of mid- and low-range draft picks specifically to use on academy bids.[146]

Notes
  • Free agency compensation picks are additional selections awarded to teams based on their net loss of players during the free agency trade period.
  • Academy players are local zone selections available to the four New South Wales and Queensland clubs. Both academy and father-son selections are subject to a bidding process, where the club with the family or academy connection must match any opposition club's bid with their next available selection.
