The AFL have confirmed that no club will receive a priority pick in this November's national draft.
Under the league's previous system, Gold Coast would have received the No.1 pick as a reward for two consecutive seasons of poor performance, in addition to their existing picks based on reverse ladder order.
And Melbourne and Greater Western Sydney would have been given an extra pick before the second round of the draft, for one poor season.
But under stricter, more complicated criteria introduced this year no club will be given an extra pick for poor performance for the first time in 10 years.
However, compensation selections for clubs who lost players to the Suns or Giants under their establishment recruiting concessions mean some clubs will still get additional picks.
Wooden spooners GWS have pick No.1 and the Suns No.2, but Melbourne get the next two selections and the Western Bulldogs the two that follow, with each of those clubs having a compensation pick.
With the Demons getting another extra pick later in the first round, as do the Giants, it means premiers Sydney will not enter the draft until pick No.22.
The order could still change, though, if clubs choose to give away picks during the upcoming trade period.
