The 2021 NFL Draft starts live in prime time on NFL Network and ESPN. The FanSided recommended method of choice for streaming the NFL Draft is FuboTV. The NFL Draft is live in Cleveland this year so prepare for some boos when the Baltimore Ravens are on the clock.
On NFL Network, coverage begins at 6:00 pm on NFL Network, with the NFL Draft Red Carpet show. This isn’t essential football viewing. If you feel inclined to check out the fashion statements the NFL Draft prospects are ready to make and to get some interviews and backstory, that’s there for you.
NFL Draft viewing options:
The draft actually begins at 8:00 pm eastern time. At that point, it’s a fan’s choice. ESPN has the classic NFL Draft soundtrack that has become essential to the process. I prefer NFL Network for the analysis you get. Daniel Jeremiah heads NFL Network’s draft coverage and he’s as good as it gets. ABC is also doing the draft.
FuboTV is a really strong alternative way to watch the draft. If you’re streaming the draft, this coverage is how you do it.
The first round of the 2021 NFL Draft is tonight. Thursday night’s coverage will go through the first 32 selections of the draft. The Baltimore Ravens have the 27th and 31st picks. That means Ravens fans will probably have to wait till at least 11:30 pm for the Ravens to make a pick.
The second and third rounds of the draft will be seen on the same channels and venues. That starts at 7:00 pm eastern time. The Ravens don’t have a second-round pick at the moment. Trades could change that. As for the third round, that’s where the Ravens have another two selections.
The third day of the 2021 NFL Draft will be on Saturday and coverage begins at noon. The same ways you can watch the previous rounds still apply to the final marathon. Yes, it is a marathon. Committed fans can spend the whole day watching the draft as they go through rounds four through seven.
The draft is the most exciting three days of the year for us football fans. This is a big deal. You need to tune in and now you know what your options are.
