Indicative draft order: Why Carlton's pain is Adelaide's gain

Will Carlton regret its decision to trade its first pick in this year's draft? - AFL,Draft,Tag-Draft
Will Carlton regret its decision to trade its first pick in this year's draft?

NO MATTER how Carlton performs for the rest of this season, the new Blues coach won't have the luxury of the first pick in this year's NAB AFL Draft.

Last year's historic live trade during the draft saw the Blues trade their 2019 first pick to Adelaide in exchange for the Crows' pick 19 (Liam Stocker) in the 2018 draft and their future first-round selection at the 2019 draft.

WHO'S WINNING? Blues, Crows, Liam Stocker and the No.1 pick

With the Blues languishing two games clear on the bottom of the ladder, it's looking very likely the Crows will hold pick No.1 in this year's draft.

Carlton's first pick is tied to Adelaide's position, which as things stand would be pick No.11.

If current ladder positions hold true until the end of the season then these are the picks your club will have.
