GREATER Western Sydney is eyeing Melbourne's No.2 draft pick as it tries to trade in a selection before another club bids on the Giants' Academy hotshot Tom Green.

Industry sources believe Adelaide (pick three) or Sydney (four) is certain to place a bid on Green, meaning the Demons' selection would be required to avoid that scenario.  

GWS would then have the opportunity to draft two players inside the top five, depending on where the Green bid comes. revealed on Tuesday that Melbourne was open to 'splitting' its first pick into multiple selections. 

Gold Coast, which holds the No.1 choice, could yet receive an extra selection before the Demons as a result of its application for a priority pick. 

However, it is understood the Suns would take midfielder Matt Rowell if they have only one selection, then his Oakleigh Chargers teammate Noah Anderson if the AFL grants them a second at the top of the order. 

Green is likened to Carlton co-captain Patrick Cripps, oozes leadership and won All Australian honours at this year's NAB AFL Under-18 Championships. 

He also ticks the genetics box as well, with his grandfather, Michael Green, playing in four premierships at Richmond. 

PHANTOM FORM GUIDE Cal Twomey's August update

GWS currently has picks 11 (from last year's Dylan Shiel trade with Essendon) and 13, a combination that is intriguing multiple clubs looking to 'split' their top-10 selection.

At the same time, it is highly unlikely those two picks alone would be enough to convince Melbourne to offload the No.2 choice.
