The NFL draft looks to return mostly to its normal form in 2021. After getting a wonderful view of Roger Goodell‘s basement as he announced picks with all the draftees in their respective homes in 2020, the stage is set in Cleveland this year. When Roger Goodell takes the stage to a barrage of boo’s, it will be unclear if they are towards him or just a mere reaction to having to be in the aforementioned city.

The 2021 draft also gets back to normal for Pittsburgh Steelers fans as they are scheduled to make a first-round selection this season. After trading away their 2020 first-round pick for All-Pro safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, Steelers fans had to wait until Friday night before they were able to learn of any new draft picks.

So you don’t miss any of the action, listed below is the schedule for this year’s NFL draft, which rounds will be drafted when, and the various place you can watch or listen to the draft.
