The 2021 NFL draft

    The 2021 NFL Virtual Draft is set to be held in Cleveland, Ohio from April 29 to May 1. 

The 86th annual draft will be held across three iconic locations in downtown Cleveland, including FirstEnergy Stadium, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center.

The first round will start on Thursday, April 29, with the second and third rounds on Friday, April 30, followed by rounds four through seven on Saturday, May 1.

Last year’s NFL draft was virtual because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The NFL is planning a primarily outdoor draft in Cleveland with fans and the top prospects in attendance, per Ben Fischer of Sports Business Journal.

“We have been characterizing it as a ‘large, live, in-person event,” Greater Cleveland Sports Commission CEO David Gilbert said, with a crowd described as “the largest event in this city in many years, certainly since the [2016] Republican Convention.”

NFL teams will conduct the draft at team facilities, rather than having coaches and GMs working from home.

Fans in attendance will be required to wear masks.

Here is the rundown of where each team will be picking in the first round with their 2020 regular-season record in parentheses.
