2007 National Draft

Despite finishing 2007 second from bottom, under the revised AFL rules for priority selections - by completing two successive seasons with four wins or less in each year - Carlton qualified for pick number 1, ahead of Richmond who won the wooden spoon. Carlton also originally held selections 3 and 20, which were traded to West Coast, along with Josh Kennedy, in exchange for Chris Judd and selection number 46.

Ruckman Matthew Kreuzer had been touted as the stand out player in the TAC Cup all year and it was no surprise that the Blues selected Kreuzer at pick 1, despite late speculation they might have been interested in his Northern Knights teammate, midfielder Trent Cotchin (selected at pick 2 by Richmond). At a shade under 200cm Kreuzer will bring some much needed class into Carlton's ruck brigade.

Carlton had to wait until Round 3 for its next selection, and when it came around they took Steven Browne with pick 36. The club's next selection, also in round 3, was at pick 46 and the Blues selected another Western Australian when they recruited Dennis Armfield from Swan Districts, a midfielder with good pace and agility.

Carlton passed with its final selection, pick 65.

Pick 1 - Priority Selection : Matthew Kreuzer, Northern Knights U18
Pick 36 : Steven Browne, West Perth, WA
Pick 46 : Dennis Armfield, Swan Districts, WA
Pick 65 : Not utilised
