THE AFL has today released the names of 68 players invited to the 2022 NAB AFL Draft Combine.

All AFL clubs submitted a list of their preferred players to attend the 2022 NAB AFL Draft Combine. All players invited to attend the national Combine received nominations from at least three AFL clubs.

AFL Talent Ambassador Kevin Sheehan said the 2022 NAB AFL Draft Combine provided a great opportunity for players to showcase their physical ability ahead of this year’s NAB AFL Draft.

"The Draft Combine sees the best players from across Australia come together to showcase their abilities in front of AFL clubs," Sheehan said.

"The players invited to the 2022 NAB AFL Draft Combine are considered by AFL clubs to be the leading prospects for the 2022 NAB AFL Draft.

"We are very excited about the high level of talent within this group of future stars of the AFL and it is extremely pleasing to have all states and territories represented as we return to a national Combine for the first time in three years."
