The first round of the 2021 NFL Draft is set to kickoff on Thursday, April 29 and continue through Saturday (May 1.)
College football's top junior and senior players are eligible to be selected by the NFL's 32 franchises and embark on a career in professional football. The draft itself has become a major televised event as fans are eager to see which new players will join their favorite teams.
This year's draft will air live from Cleveland, Ohio, which was initially chosen as the host city during the 2019 NFL Spring League Meeting. Last year's draft was held virtually for the first time in 85 years amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
