NFL Draft Guide: What time does the 2021 NFL Draft start and what time is the first pick?

The 2021 NFL Draft is coming up, and people are eager to get things started, so what time does the NFL start? We’ll be taking you through some frequently asked questions in this primer.

What time does the 2021 NFL draft start?

The 2021 NFL Draft will be held over three days from April 29 to May 1 and will begin at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday.

Day 1

Day one will kick things off with the Jacksonville Jaguars going on the clock at 8 p.m. ET. Teams will have 10 minutes to make their pick in the first round, but the first pick shouldn’t take too long as we all know who the Jaguars are taking — Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

Day 2

Day two will start at 7 p.m. ET on Friday, again with the Jaguars picking first. The second and third rounds will take place on day two. Supplemental picks start on Friday, so there will be 73 picks in these two rounds due to the extra third-rounders.

Day 3

The 2021 NFL Draft’s final day will kick off earlier than the others, at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday. This will see the last four rounds take place and things will move much quicker than on the previous two days.

What time is the first pick?

As mentioned above, the 2021 NFL Draft will kick off with the Jaguars going on the clock at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday. They’re widely expected to take Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
