Welcome to the 2021 NFL Draft Round 1 Open Thread. The 2021 NFL Draft kicks off tonight at 5pm PT with Round 1 and continues through Saturday.

Unlike in years past, there are just two UCLA Bruins eligible for this draft. They are Demetric Felton and Osa Odighizuwa.

This year’s draft is being held outside of FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio.

As usual, ESPN and NFL Network will be combining forces to cover the event over the next three days. ABC will again offer an over-the-air broadcast with a feed that’s different from ESPN’s coverage.

And, again, you can actually listen to draft coverage on satellite radio.

That's important to know, especially for today's first round. Here on the West Coast, the Draft starts at 5pm PT. Many of us here in the Pacific time zone don’t get off work until then (or later) even if you’re working from home. So, if you have Sirius or XM, you can listen to their draft coverage while you’re finishing up.
