Stay up to date with all of St Kilda's selections, potential pick swaps and more from tonight's National Draft, presented by Empirics.

Coverage will begin from around 7:00pm AEDT, with rolling updates available below.

Allison a Saint

St Kilda has selected Calder Cannon Matthew Allison with its first-round selection of the 2020 National Draft.

The 194cm key forward was taken at pick No. 26 – originally pick No. 21 before being pushed down the order by several matched Academy bids.

Allison is strong overheard, is armed with a good kick and boasts the ability play down back or push up onto the wing.

The 18-year-old points to St Kilda champion Nick Riewoldt and North Melbourne/West Coast forward Drew Petrie as players he has modelled his game off.  

Saints jump up the order

A swap of selections has seen the Saints move up the draft order, with picks No. 54 and a future fourth-rounder (received from Richmond as part of the Jack Higgins deal) departing to Hawthorn in for pick No. 43 exchange.

Highmore earns his shot

Mature-age recruit Tom Highmore has officially joined the red, white and black after being picked up with pick No. 45.

St Kilda snared the 22-year-old after moving up the draft order courtesy of a pick swap (pick No. 54 and a future fourth-round selection) with Hawthorn.

The intercepting defender pieced together a strong campaign for South Adelaide in 2020 after overcoming a mid-season ankle injury, taking command of the airwaves through his clean marking.

Highmore similarly offers spring out of the back half and isn't shy in terms of courageous acts on-field. 

As it stands

Acquisitions: Matthew Allison (pick No. 26), Tom Highmore (pick No. 45)
Pick swaps: Pick No. 54 and a future fourth-rounder to Hawthorn in exchange for pick No. 43
