THE AFL has scrapped its controversial 10-1 countdown at this year's draft, reverting back to the traditional style.

The past three years saw AFL clubs decide on the first round before the draft officially started, enabling the league to showcase the top 10 picks in a countdown format.

But it created little tension with a single club dominating picks at the top of each draft and no surprises on who would be crowned No. 1.

Pick Me: Is the next Jobe Watson heading to the Dees?

The closest the AFL came to artificially creating excitement was when Melbourne plucked Tom Scully with the No. 1 pick and Jack Trengove with the second selection.

This year's draft will take place on the Gold Coast on Thursday, November 22.

The final draft order will be confirmed next Thursday after the second list lodgement and at the end of the delisted free agency period.

SuperFooty has launched its "Pick Me" Draft series, counting down some of the hottest draft prospects:

- Pick Me: The next Adam Goodes

- Pick Me: The next Bombers superstar

- Pick Me: The next Sam Mitchell

- Pick Me: The next Jobe Watson

- Pick Me: The next Heath Shaw

- Pick Me: The next Brad Sewell

Who will tomorrow's be?
