How the bidding system works
The AFL Draft has introduced a bidding and points index in recent years for Northern Academy, Next Generation Academy and father-son prospects.
Every selection from Pick 1-73 has value on the points index, with Pick 1 set at 3000 points, while Pick 73 is worth 9 points.
These points are used to help evaluate how picks are used to match bids by clubs who have priority access to Academy or father-son prospects.
