Several teams will hope to find their franchise quarterbacks Thursday night in Cleveland.
The first 32 picks in the 2021 NFL Draft will go off the board tonight as the first round is held in Cleveland. The action starts at 7 p.m. CT with television coverage on ABC, ESPN and NFL Network.
The Jaguars opened the night with the first overall pick, which they used on Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who’s widely considered the best QB prospect in years. The Jets followed that up by taking BYU quarterback Zach Wilson, as expected, with the second overall pick.
The real mystery started with the third overall pick and the 49ers, who took North Dakota State’s Trey Lance after trading up earlier in the offseason. The Falcons and Bengals round out the top five this year.
The Bears will hit the clock with the 20th overall pick unless they decide to make a trade.
The results of the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft are below. This story will be updated with each pick.
