Carlton have traded the rights of South Australian state league player Nathan Krueger to Geelong, in exchange for their third round pick (currently 42).
Krueger is a 19-year-old forward from South Adelaide who kicked 22 goals this season, and has been selected by the Blues as one of their state-league players, after the AFL allowed the Blues to select two such players this off-season.

The Cats used a pick they received from Brisbane for Lincoln McCarthy, in a trade that was sealed inside the opening hour of free agency.
Cats would have taken Nathan Kreuger with pick 42 in the draft. Indigenous kid, 196cm from Darwin via SANFL. Makes sense to swap that pick with Blues for him. Blues likely to sign up SANFL's Shane McAdam as well
