HERE'S the early warning: get ready to hear the word 'compromised' plenty of times next year. The 2020 NAB AFL Draft is more than 12 months away, but already the chatter has started about what's to come.

While recruiters, particularly those focused on the 'futures' markets, are of mixed views about the quality of next year's group, there is no doubt about the overwhelming number of players already tied to clubs.

Of the 48 players selected for the game, 17 are tied to AFL clubs around the competition as either potential father-sons, Next Generation Academy picks or northern Academy products.

In the All Stars game, Jamarra Ugle-Hagan (Western Bulldogs), Brandon Walker and Joel Western (Fremantle), Connor Downie (Hawthorn), Reef McInnes (Collingwood), Lachlan Jones (Port Adelaide), James Borlase (Adelaide) and Cody Brand (Essendon) are all possible NGA picks for their clubs next season.

There are also a couple of possible father-sons on the horizon, with Taj Schofield, the son of 2004 premiership player Jarrad, eligible to join Port Adelaide, and Luke Edwards, whose father Tyson played in two flags with Adelaide, able to join the Crows.

Jones probably lives in Adelaide now, so ineligible for NGI. That would be our luck.

Are there other teams?
Not strictly F/S, but the Jones boy is one I am very keen to follow next year. I’m hearing excellent things about him.
