With the National Draft in 1986 came the Father-Son selection, a pick which at times has been allowed as a priority pick, and others as a 3rd (or even 2nd round selection). All Father-Sons derived directly through draft picks are denoted with an #.

There were other sons of past greats to come through the Club who never managed to crack it for a game in the seniors, listed here. Unfortunately for Carlton, there are also examples of players whose father was Blue, but due to the workings of various draft rules, or even choice, they found themselves elsewhere. These players are listed here.


Please also note a famous Pre VFL father and VFL sons - John Gardiner 1872 - 1879, ex-Carlton Captain and President, was the father of both Vin Gardiner and Jack Gardiner.
