Geelong have received pre-listed state league player Nathan Kreuger from Carlton in exchange for pick No.42 in next month’s draft.
Kreuger is a 19-year-old key position player who played for South Adelaide in the SANFL this year.
The Cats gave the Blues the third-round pick which they received from the Brisbane Lions in exchange for injury-plagued speedster Lincoln McCarthy on Monday.
Carlton were given rights to state league players this year by the AFL in a bid to fast-track their improvement.
Geelong have also acquired Luke Dahlhaus from the Western Bulldogs as a free agent this exchange period.
