While the AFL player movement period has come to an end, clubs will be able to still trade draft selections from Monday through to draft night as rivals begin preparing bids for West Coast's prized possession of Pick 1.
The first overall selection is gettable, but only for the right price, with Eagles list manager Rohan O'Brien wanting to be 'blown out of the water' to even be tempted to trade their place at the front of the queue for Bendigo Pioneers talent Harley Reid.
The Eagles could look to do what they did 12 months ago and spit their opening pick in a move that sees them fall back from their earliest selection but hold multiple first-round choices instead.
Currently, they won't re-enter the draft until the second round, holding just three selections prior to Pick 58. If they want to speed up their list rebuild, then getting access to a handful of this year's best prospects might be more enticing than bringing in the leading draft star that is Reid.
Pick 1 is expected to be on the end of some mouth-watering offers, but it'll still take something gargantuan to see the selection change hands for the second time in as many years.
North Melbourne might be the only club that could persuade West Coast into a trade given how the draft order currently reads, with the Roos home to five first-round picks for November's draft as well as their own opening selection for 2024.
Among that hand are Picks 2 and 3, with any trade between the Eagles and Kangaroos likely to involve the earlier of the two selections as West Coast plan to remain in the conversation and not allow the Roos to have the first two bites of the apple.
Couple Pick 2 with some of North Melbourne's later selections of Picks 15, 17 or 18, and perhaps their future first-round pick, and the Eagles might be keen on a deal that allows the Roos enter the draft at Pick 1 and then two spots later as well.
Melbourne is another potential suitor for Pick 1 but are unlikely to be able to get access to the top of the board with their current hand. The Demons do hold Picks 6 (via Fremantle) and 11 as well as their own 2024 first-round pick.
Moving on Pick 11 and the future selection could get them another top 10 pick, but it mightn't be enough to satisfy the Eagles.
Geelong's Pick 8 selection is on the table for clubs to consider, with the Cats wanting the right offer in return to part with their opening pick.
Melbourne could make a move, with talks starting at Pick 11 and more, while Essendon and Adelaide have also flagged their desire to move up the order from their current positions of Pick 9 and Pick 10 respectively.
The Roos are the only side with more first-round picks than the Crows, who currently hold a hand of selections ar 10, 14 and 20 for the opening night of the draft. Add in their own future first-round selection and the Crows could work themselves toward the front of the queue.
St Kilda and GWS also hold multiple first-round picks for 2023 to go with future top selections, with the Saint potentially looking to add to Pick 13 and move up the order from their second selection of Pick 21.
The Giants will be satisfied with Pick 7, but could get creative and look to double their place in the top 10 by moving on Pick 16 and their future first-round selection.
Clubs will be keen to get into the Pick 2-8 range before the quality of this year's draft class falls considerably - likely why Adelaide and Essendon are eyeing earlier picks than their own current top 10 selections.
Another selection that'll be in demand following the opening night of the draft will be West Coast's secondary selection of Pick 23 - which will start the second-round of the draft.
Clubs will have close to 24 hours following the end of the first-round to make deals and potentially get to the front of the queue for a particular prospect that was overlooked in the opening round.
Pick 23 - which is likely to fall closer to 28th overall following matched bids - allows its holder first access to the best remaining talent, with West Coast again to have the most coveted selection if they still hold it after the first night.
Another consideration on draft night will be trading 2024 draft selections, with next year's class likely to see several matched bids come for Academy and father-son selections much like this year.
In what is viewed as a midfield-heavy draft, Brisbane, Adelaide, Gold Coast and Carlton each have top-rated 2024 prospects in their sights via priority access.
Vic Metro talent Levi Ashcroft is likely to join his brother Will at the Lions as a father-son selection that'll see the teenager follow in the footsteps of his father Marcus and play in Queensland, while Academy talent Sam Marshall is another name Brisbane will be keeping a close eye on.
Woodville-West Torrens spearhead Tyler Welsh, son of Scott, is one the leading key forwards in next year's class, while Gold Coast will have access to highly-rated midfielder and Academy prospect Leonardo Lombard.
The Blues will need to hold onto enough draft points for next year as Camporeale twins Lucas and Ben, with the latter a standout at this year's Future Stars game.
Sons of former Carlton star Scott, the two 2024 prospects could see the Blues place their future first-round selection on the table in an effort to either strengthen this year's draft hand or add in multiple picks for next year's count.
Brisbane could move into the opening round of this year with their 2024 selection, having parted with their first-round pick last year in a trade for Josh Dunkley.
The Crows might consider parting with one, or multiple, 2023 first-round picks if they don't view the remaining prospects on offer as any benefit once they're on the clock again, instead moving those picks on for more 2024 draft points.
