The mid-season draft is seen as a major opportunity for clubs to fill a hole that may have become available due to injury in the previous weeks of the season.

It is also an unbelievable opportunity for players across the country to either realise the dream of playing at the elite level or for players who have been discarded by the system to get another chance at it.

Over 300 players have nominated for the mid-season draft, perΒ News Corp, with 100 of those coming out of the VFL.

Standouts in the VFL include former Western Bulldogs forward Billy Gowers, who has been key in Southport's start to the season.

Former Saint and Magpie Nathan Freeman is missing from the list despite averaging over 40 disposals for Frankston in the VFL.

Former Adelaide and Collingwood forward Ben Crocker has been excellent for Carlton's reserves playing as a mid-size full-forward and will look to be thrown an AFL lifeline.

Former No. 1 draft pick Patrick McCartin has nominated but his chances of securing a list spot were dealt a major blow after he was suspended for striking a couple of weeks ago.
