With the league's Mid-Season Draft set to take place on Wednesday this week, a portion of the 602-players that nominated their services are set to have their lives change forever.

For the budding youngsters that missed out on selection at last year's national talent market, it will offer them a chance to make their dreams come true - albeit a tad later than some of their peers.

For the wily veterans that have thrown their hats back into the ring, it will mean one last chance to lace the boots and keep their flames shielded from the wind for at least another six-months.

Despite the fact that not every side will enter the draft with a pick available, we have run a fine toothed comb through all 18-lists, and have made recommendations of talent for fans of every creed and clubs of every colour.

Here are the players every club should be considering on Wednesday night.



Number of selections available – One
Draft position – 16th*

Cam Rayner is listed to miss the remainder of 2021 with a knee injury and the Lions have since opened up a selection spot by moving him to the inactive list.

In doing so, Chris Fagan and co. may wish to bolster their ruck stocks.

Following the departure of Stefan Martin to the Dogs and during the period in which Oscar McInerney was sidelined, Brisbane lacked ascendancy at stoppages.

A number of the viable ruckmen such as Max Heath, Liam Podhajski, Tom Downie and former Magpie, Corey Gault will become options.
