South Australian midfielder Luke Edwards was West Coast's first pick in the 2020 national draft.

West Coast career[]

The son of dual Adelaide premiership player Tyson Edwards, Luke was entered into the general draft pool after the Crows elected not to nominate him as a father-son selection. West Coast, having traded out of the early rounds of the 2020 draft, selected the Glenelg product with the club's first pick, which did not come until the 50s. On being drafted, he was described as a defender with clean hands and good vision as well as the ability to push up into the midfield.[1]

Edwards was a surprise packet in his first season, forcing his way into the senior side by the halfway point and playing eight games. He added another three games early in 2022, but struggled with osteitis pubis and was switched to inactive status ahead of the mid-season draft. Edwards returned in 2023, playing a career-high 14 games, although not really locking down a regular spot.
