The 2020 NFL Draft was unlike anything the league and viewers had experienced. From commissioner Roger Goodell snacking on M&M’s in his basement to head coaches making picks from their living rooms, the draft proved to be an oasis at a time when live sporting action was practically non-existent.
Although the virus may dictate the direction of this year’s annual gathering, the event is currently slated for April 29 to May 1 in Cleveland, Ohio. Regardless of where it’s physically held, the Jacksonville Jaguars are on the clock with the No. 1 pick. Think you know who they’ll select? If not, here are the latest 2021 NFL draft odds for the overall No. 1 selection to help inform your decision.
