Hawthorn are looking to add another first-round pick in next week’s draft, according to afl.com.au.

The report states that the Hawks are prepared to trade their future 2020 first-round pick  to secure an additional 2019 first-rounder.

It means Hawthorn would have its current pick 11, its earliest selection since 2006, and a second first-round pick in next Wednesday’s draft.

However, there is a road block in their way. Under current rules, in order to trade future first-round picks, clubs must retain its other picks in the draft.

The Hawks traded their 2020-second rounder during the exchange period, therefore cannot move their future first-round pick as it stands.

The potential move signals that Hawthorn don’t expect bids for father-son prospect Finn Maginness until late in the first round or early in the second.

Son of dual-premiership Hawk Scott Maginness, the emerging midfielder was not among the 16 players invited to attend the opening draft night.

Hawthorn would be able to match potential second-round bids with its next selections, currently No. 30, 42 and 54.
