Hawthorn, the Western Bulldogs and Fremantle will be closely watching the opening 11 selections to Tuesday's draft proceedings as rival clubs weigh up bids for NGA-tied draft prospects.
Clubs are able to secure products of other Next Generation Academy groups in the opening 40 selections of the draft, leaving less than a dozen picks to go between the end of the first round and the cut-off.
Night one of the count saw 29 selections made in the opening round, a total that ballooned out from 22 after a total of seven Northern Academy and father-son bids were lodged.
NGA links have greater restrictions in place, which saw the likes of Ryley Sanders (selected by the Western Bulldogs) and Lance Collard (St Kilda) attained by other clubs after developing through the North Melbourne and West Coast NGA pathways respectively.
The Hawks, Dogs and Dockers could face a similar fate to start Tuesday night's intake, with all three clubs hoping their NGA draft stars are still on offer after Pick 40.
Hawthorn has ties to promising half-back Tew Jiath, who gains comparisons to his older brother and Hawthorn gun Changkuoth with his line-breaking ability and defensive prowess.
The likes of West Coast (Picks 30 and 39), Carlton (Pick 33) and Collingwood (Pick 36) could all make a move for Jiath before the Hawks get their chance.
Those sides might also show some interest in Western Bulldogs NGA talent Luamon Lual, who is another dashing defender who also boasts a strong one-on-one and run game.
The South Warrnambool junior would be a perfect pickup for the Dogs following their first-round additions of Sanders and father-son Jordan Croft, while Lual looms as one of the best prospects still on offer ahead of night two.
The 206cm tall teenager entered this year as a potential top-five selection before facing setbacks through injury and form to now be a chance of sliding past the Pick 40 barrier.
The Dockers have been rapt with Edwards' draft campaign nonetheless and will be eager to see the South Mandurah native slide into their grasp.
Fremantle does have a pair of second-round selections to officially open their draft haul, with Picks 37 able to be used on Edwards if needed. The Dockers could manage a triple coup if Edwards is still up for grabs when they next come on the clock at Pick 40, meaning they could overlook the high-upside prospect and then await a bid that they can then match.
Edwards, Jiath and Lual lead the pack of NGA prospects still on offer, with West Coast likely to secure ruck-forward Coen Livingstone as late as Wednesday as a rookie selection after missing out on Collard.
Essendon-tied Mahmoud Taha is another who be drafted with a move to the Bombers, who are set to have a vacant list spot following the cessation of the National Draft.
Other matched bid offers could come for father-son and Northern Academy prospects on night two, with Kynan Brown and Calsher Dear in line to join the Demons and Hawks respectively as father-son acquisitions.
The Swans could secure Indhi Kirk as either a father-son or Academy talent as late as Wednesday, while Lachlan Cabor is another promising Sydney Academy prospect who could add to the club's selection of Academy gun Caiden Cleary from night one.
GWS are likely to make a move for Academy prospect Harvey Thomas, however his selection is also more likely to fall on Wednesday.
The second night of the draft is set to commence at 7:00pm (AEDT) on Tuesday at Marvel Stadium, while the Rookie and Pre-Season Drafts are scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
