A look at each pick as they happen around the 2021 NFL Draft taking place in Cleveland.

Browns Digest has all of the picks in the first round for you to follow along with tonight. One spot where you can find all of the picks, as soon as they happen.

The live draft tracker will start at 8 p.m. when the draft begins in Cleveland, Ohio. The first pick is noted as a lock for Urban Myer and the Jacksonville Jaguars, Trevor Lawrence has been a Jaguar’ for a while now. Tonight it becomes official for the Clemson product.

The lives of 32 first round prospects change tonight with the first round tipping off the first of three draft days 

After that Zach Wilson is the favorite to land in New York, it could get crazy following the first couple of picks. Be ready to follow along with us!

1) Jacksonville Jaguars - Trevor Lawrence QB Clemson


This pick has been a lock for months. Urban Meyer gets his guy to begin his tenure as a NFL head coach.

2) New York Jets - Zach Wilson QB BYU

The Jets opted to move on from Sam Darnold. Plugging in Wilson gives them a QB of the future as they run it back.

3) San Francisco 49ers (from HOU through MIA) - Trey Lance QB North Dakota State 

San Francisco moves up and grabs their QB to pair with a bunch of offensive weapons they have obtained.

4) Atlanta Falcons - Kyle Pitts TE Florida 


Atlanta gets possibly the best talent in this draft. Should be a matchup problem from day one.

5) Cincinnati Bengals - Ja’Marr Chase WR LSU

Bengals pass up on the draft’s best tackle to protect Joe Burrow, instead grab a weapon for him.

6) Miami Dolphins (from PHI) - Jaylen Waddle WR Alabama

Dolphins add a speedster in Waddle that will make an impact pretty quickly as he is dangerous with the ball in his hands.

7) Detroit Lions - Penei Sewell OT Oregon


Lions get the best offensive lineman in the draft that should rack up plenty of pro bowls.

8) Carolina Panthers - Jaycee Horn CB South Carolina 


Horn becomes the first defensive player drafted in 2021’s draft. Talented player that will start outside year one.

9) Denver Broncos - Patrick Surtain CB Alabama

Another talented corner off the board that will make an impact right away for the Broncos.

10) Philadelphia Eagles (from DAL) - Devonta Smith WR Alabama

Smith adds a much needed wideout to the Eagles franchise. Heisman winner and national champion.

11) Chicago Bears (from NYG) - Justin Fields QB Ohio State


Bears move up and grab Fields, great value at the 11th pick. 

12) Dallas Cowboys (from Philly) - Micah Parsons LB


Dallas moves back and adds a defensive player they likely would have selected at 10. Solid prospect and good value at the pick.

13) Los Angeles Chargers - Rashawn Slater OT Northwestern

Some teams had Slater graded over Sewell, either way he’s a special talent that will protect Justin Herbert.

14) New York Jets (from MIN) - G/T Alijah Vera-Tucker USC

Jets move up and grab some protection for their rookie quarterback.

15) New England Patriots - Mac Jones QB Alabama 

Patriots get a rookie quarterback to compete and learn behind Cam Newton.

16) Arizona Cardinals - Zaven Collins LB Tulsa


A big linebacker that can provide pressure off the edge finds a home in Arizona.

17) Las Vegas Raiders - Alex Leatherwood OT

Raiders get some help up front, perhaps a slight reach though.

18) Miami Dolphins - Jaelen Phillips DE Miami

Some concussion concerns here, but a real good player if he can stay on the field.

19) Washington Football Team - Jamin Davis LB Kentucky 

Jamin Davis UK

A nice linebacker for Washington here, seems like a little bit early for him.

20) New York Giants (from CHI) - Kadarius Toney WR Florida 

Giants get some offensive help, but probably could have gotten him a round later surely.

21) Indianapolis Colts - Kwity Paye DE Michigan

Colts grab a talented DE at a good spot to bolster their defense.

22) Tennessee Titans - Caleb Farley CB Virginia Tech 

There is plenty of injury concern with Farley, though the talent is undeniable. High risk, high reward pick.

23) Minnesota Vikings (from NYJ) - Christian Darrisaw

After trading back the Vikings draft a quality tackle.

24) Pittsburgh Steelers - Najee Harris RB Alabama 

Steelers lost James Conner in the offseason, draft his replacement in the first round.

25) Jacksonville Jaguars (from LAR) - Travis Etienne RB Clemson

Jaguars have a solid running back in James Robinson and reach for Etienne.

26) Cleveland Browns - Greg Newsome CB Northwestern


Browns fill a need at corner with a solid prospect that fits the bill.

27) Baltimore Ravens - Rashod Bateman WR Minnesota 

Ravens get a good weapon in Bateman that will make a spark right away.

28) New Orleans Saints - Payton Turner DE Houston 

29) Green Bay Packers - Eric Stokes CB Georgia

30) Buffalo Bills - Greg Rousseau DE Miami

31) Baltimore Ravens (from KC) - Jayson Oweh DE Penn State

A player that brings strong athleticism, but needs to bring it all together. Needs some work, high ceiling.

32) Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Joe Tryon DE Washington

Good pass rusher to end the draft that should be able to rotate right away in Tampa.
