Thought it might be interesting to see what people think the first live trade on draft night might be.

I know clubs can make trades at anytime in the next few weeks, but I think once we see which players become available things will really heat up.

Forgive my ignorance on this:

Can clubs also get these swaps done in the time between now and draft night or can they now only do it draft night?

I suppose tactically some clubs would want to do it as close to the picks as possible in some case to avoid telegraphing their punches to another team interested in the same high pick.

Anytime from now until the pick as far as I'm aware.

Gold Coast take Luko and Smith, then the Saints hold a bidding war with the South Australian sides trading pick 4 for 5 and a later swap or for pick 8 and something very decent from the Crows.

My guess is the Saints swap out with Port and then the Suns swap with the Crows.

The ideal draft for a St Kilda fan might be trading pick 4 to pick 5 with Port. Then trading pick 5 for pick 8 with Adelaide. Collect assets in both moves and still get a very good player at pick 8.

All depends on who GC take at 3.
If it's Rankine, think the Crows will accept Rozee will end up at Port.
If it's Smith, Crows may end up pushing for 6 to grab one Of The SA boys, as Saints likely to take Max King.
Wouldn't surprise me if GWS look for a move up at well.

I have a feeling that live trading won’t get used the whole draft.

Clubs wil do any changing of picks before the day comes.

Carlton trade pick #1 and #69 to Adelaide for pick #8, #16 and #21
Nah, no chance.

Aside from Carlton being pretty clear that we will keep pick 1, that we feel we have loaded up on quantity of kids well over the past 3 years...

There's no way Adelaide and Carlton are making a trade without it involving 2 months of torturous deliberations and a 700 page thread on Bigfooty.

We will just have to wait until contracted Cameron Poison requests a trade to Adelaide, Carlton demand 7 first round picks and all the fun begins again (before the crows ultimately face...)

I think we'll see a few swaps but they won't be many early ones like people are anticipating, (though I do expect the SA clubs to give that a shot) it'll be more in the 2nd/3rd onwards where a player high on a club's ranking is still available and they suspect another club might soon pounce and offer something like swaps of 3rds this year and then their 2019 3rd for the club picking's 2019 4th.

In response to OP 5 + 15 for 3 + 29 is my guess. Port takes Rankine with 3.
