West Coast is expected to give former Gold Coast and Carlton player Jarrod Garlett a career lifeline in next week's mid-season draft.

The Eagles urged the 25-year-old to nominate for the June 2 draft, after kicking 11 goals in four games for Railways in Perth's Great Northern Football League.

Garlett was recruited by the Suns with pick 14 in the 2014 National Draft and played 17 games and kicked 10 goals across two seasons before moving to Carlton.

Garlett played 13 games for the Blues and kicked five goals across two seasons before he was delisted at the end of 2019.

Garlett drew attention for his four-goal haul for Railways in their historic draw against Rovers in Round 1 this season.

It was the first time the fixture had ended even at the final siren in its 60 year history.

The two sides met in the Grand Final last year but in their 179th meeting they were unable to be split despite the brilliance of Garlett who made his debut for the Railways.

If he is selected by the Eagles in next week's draft he will add depth to their small forward brigade, which has been lacking without the availability of Willie Rioli.
