The Gold Coast Suns are fielding trade calls for their first selection in the 2021 national draft, with Richmond and Adelaide among the clubs interested in trading up the draft order.
The Suns are open to dealing the No. 3 pick, with the intention of moving down the first-round order and securing multiple selections.
According to an AFL.com.au report, Gold Coast are interested in trading up for the No. 1 overall pick (belonging to North Melbourne), but the Roos look poised to stay put and select South Adelaide midfielder Jason Horne-Francis.
Now, the Suns look more likely to move down the order than up.
Richmond holds four picks inside the top 30 (7, 15, 26 and 28) as well as future selections, and therefore have the ability to table a decent offer to the Suns.
Meanwhile, the Crows are currently in ownership of the No. 4 pick as well as the 23rd overall selection, which is likely to be flipped to the Swans in hopes of securing backman Jordan Dawson.
Midfield trio Finn Callaghan, Ben Hobbs and Josh Ward, as well as intercept defender Josh Gibcus and rising ruck Mac Andrew, figure to be among the names available to whichever club picks third.
The opening several selections are also likely to face some interruption, with early bids on father-son pair Nick Daicos and Sam Darcy to come from the Magpies and Bulldogs respectively.
Clubs are able to trade picks up until a week before November's draft and again during the event.
