Previous trades[edit]

Since 2015, clubs have been able to trade future picks in the next year's national draft during the trade period. As a result, a total of 34 selections for the 2019 draft were traded during the 2018 trade period, including (for the first time) at the 2018 National Draft, where 14 picks were traded. The selection order for each of these picks is tied to the original club's finishing position in the 2019 season.[4]

  • The first pick of the first and second rounds of the 2019 National Draft (picks #1 and #20).
  • A mid-first round pick in the 2020 AFL draft (pick #11, since traded to Geelong at the 2019 National Draft).
  • The first pick of the second round of the 2021 AFL draft (pick #19).
  • Darwin was added to its Academy zone
  • The ability to be able to pre-list Academy players to their rookie list.
  • An expanded rookie list of up to ten players, with the club having a maximum roster of 50 players.
