2021 NFL Draft
Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020 NFL Draft is in the books and excitement is already building for next year’s draft in Cleveland, with the NFL officially announcing the scheduled dates for the 2021 NFL Draft.

The 86th NFL Draft will be held from April 29 – May 21, 2021 right in the heart of Cleveland. The city will host draft events at two of its most recognized locations, FirstEnergy Stadium and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

While the NFL Draft is special every year, next year could be especially meaningful for the NFL world. After holding a virtual 2020 NFL Draft due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 NFL Draft could be an opportunity for everyone to come back together and celebrate one of the biggest events in sports.

The 2021 draft class could also prove to be special, highlighted by Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawremce, and the depth already stands out in the first 2021 NFL mock draft.

Las Vegas missed out on an opportunity to welcome NFL fans from across the country to take part in the annual tradition where thousands of fans come together to watch the NFL Draft. Now, Cleveland will have the opportunity to deliver an incredible experience for everyone.
