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 will open the night with the first overall pick, which they’re going to use on Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who’s widely considered the best QB prospect in years. The Jets are expected to use the second overall pick on BYU quarterback Zach Wilson, who’s impressed in the pre-draft process.
The real mystery starts with the third overall pick and the 49ers, who are expected to use the pick on their next quarterback. Ohio State’s Justin Fields, North Dakota State’s Trey Lance and Alabama’s Mac Jones are also expected to be selected Thursday night.
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.
