Adelaide has decided not to recruit the son of a club legend as a father-son in next month's National Draft.

Luke Edwards, the son of 321-game midfielder Tyson Edwards will not be picked as a father-son selection with the Crows preferring to package their late draft picks in deals to move up the draft order, according to Fox Sports' Ben Waterworth. 

The Crows hold picks 1, 9, 22, 23, 40, 56 and 60 in the National Draft and would need to use their later picks to secure Edwards as a father-son.

It means Edwards will now have to nominate for the National and Rookie Draft and can be selected by any team in the league.

Edwards' brother, Jackson Edwards, spent 2018 on the Crows' rookie list but was delisted after one season without playing a game.
