The opening night and first round of the 2022 AFL Draft has been completed, with 21  prospects reaching their dream of making the top flight on Monday.

AFL recruits, prospects and fans now turn attention to Tuesday night, where the second round and onwards will play out to conclude this year's count.


GWS are set to open the second round at Pick 22, while West Coast, the Western Bulldogs and Essendon hold the three following selections.

With little trade movement on Monday night, expect plenty of pick swaps to occur.

A number of Father-Son prospects remain on the table, while some clubs will be having their attention turned toward the Pick 40 for the Next Generation Academy bidding cut-off.

Essendon will be hopeful half-forward Anthony Munkara remains available come the cut-off, while Hawthorn's Cooper Vickery is another that could gain interest in the next 20 picks.

Here's the state of play for the remaining talent and the names that will headline the second night of the draft.


1. Henry Hustwaite

Dandenong Stingrays talent Henry Hustwaite has emerged as a rare breed onballer ahead of the National Draft thanks to a timely growth spurt that now sees the versatile midfielder-defender hybrid standing at 195cm tall.

The Rosebud native was already looming as a formidable utility prospect among the class of 2022 and hasn't lost his clean touch and agility as a result of his rise in height, placing Hustwaite in calculations as a potential top 25 selection.

The mixture of his key-position-like build, efficiency with the Sherrin and lacking strength places Hustwaite far from the norm of the new-age onballer, with the versatile ball-winner set to offer any club that rolls the dice on his name a newfound edge.

What is also enticing from Hustwaite's capabilities is his ability to effortlessly switch to the defensive third, mounting a case as one of the best two-way utilities ahead of the draft.
