Time to take a look at the order of the Top 18 picks of the 2021 NFL Draft.
The 2020 NFL regular season is officially in the books. Many can’t believe it even took place, considering the tall task of playing during a pandemic, but the NFL did it. All 32 teams played their full allotment of 16 games. Sure, they ended up having a game every day of the week this season, but they got the season concluded.
With Week 17 of the regular season now in the rear view mirror, 18 teams have moved from game preparation to NFL Draft preparation. With the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs officially done, it is a good time to show the current draft order for the 2021 NFL Draft.
Obviously, teams who are still competing in the playoffs won’t be listed until they are eliminated, but we will update this article after every round to indicate the updated draft order. Since the Pittsburgh Steelers’ season ended on Sunday night after losing to the Cleveland Browns, they have settled into the 24th pick in Round 1.
