The NFL draft will take place Thursday, April 29 through Saturday, May 1, 2021, in Cleveland, Ohio. Overview of how it works – Each team gets one pick from all seven rounds. And in order for a player to be eligible for the draft they must be out of high school for at least three years. During this event, the Jacksonville Jaguars have the first overall pick.
