2021 NFL Draft

Despite the continued impact COVID-19 is having on everyday life in the United States, the NFL is doing its part to bring back a sense of normalcy with its handling of the 2021 NFL Draft.

The event will be held in-person in Cleveland beginning April 29 and will include appearances by many of this year’s highly coveted prospects.

There’ll be entertainment, too, as shared by the league this week:

Per NFL.com:

“The NFL announced Wednesday that Grammy-Award winners Kings of Leon will open festivities at the Draft Theater in Cleveland on Thursday, April 29, as part of the NFL Draft Concert Series presented by Bose. Their full performance will be streamed on NFL.com, in the NFL app and live on the NFL’s Facebook page. Portions of the performance will also be televised in NFL Network, ESPN and ABC’s pre-Draft coverage beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and lead singer of legendary rock band, Heart, Ann Wilson will sing the National Anthem as part of the Draft opening festivities.”
