The 2021 NFL Draft has arrived! This year’s will be in Cleveland instead of the all-virtual draft, and Roger Goodell will be allowed to awkwardly hug players and get himself booed by attending fans. We know that Trevor Lawrence will go #1 overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars, followed by Zach Wilson #2 to the New York Jets, one of Mac Jones or Trey Lance at #3 to the San Francisco 49ers. From there? Your guess is as good as ours.

This is your place to discuss the draft, and we’ll be updating this post with the picks as they roll in, along with any trades that are finalized, and we know there will be trades. The Seattle Seahawks are sitting Thursday out (barring some dramatic, totally unexpected moment) and we’ll be on deck on Friday.

The draft starts at 5 PM PT on ESPN, ABC, NFL Network, and ESPN Deportes.
