The 2021 NFL Draft was oozing with hype, and night one in Cleveland did not disappoint. But what about night two? Even if it can’t match the anticipation of round one, we have a feeling you’re going to want to watch rounds two and three tonight on ESPN, ESPN3 or NFL Network.

There are still some QBs Out There
There may not be a sure fire QB1 left on the draft board, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t talent left for teams to take a flyer on. Let me remind you that Russel Wilson, Drew Brees, Brett Favre and Joe Montana are some 2nd and 3rd round picks that became franchise players. Depending on where you look (shocker), there may or may not be a QB taken in these rounds but keep an eye out for Kyle Trask (Florida), Davis Mills (Stanford) and Kellen Mond (Texas A&M). Looking for some late-round sleepers on Saturday? I like taking a shot on Georgia’s Jamie Newman and Notre Dame’s Ian Book.
Wide Receivers, Wide Receivers, Wide Receivers
It’s hard to match the fire power the wide outs taken on day one, but day two has some playmakers that can make an instant impact. Electric playmakers like Elijah Moore (Ole Miss), Rondale Moore (Purdue), and Tutu Atwell (Louisville) top the board but don’t forget about Tylan Wallace (Oklahoma State), Amari Rodgers (Clemson) and Sage Surratt (Wake Forrest) who all showed they can produce on any given Saturday.
The Green Bay Packers
In light of the shocking news that Aaron Rodgers no longer wants to be part of the Packers, how will GM Brian Gutekunst handle the rest of the Draft? He told the media late Thursday night that “we’re not going to trade Aaron Rodgers,” and “we’ve been working through for a little while now. It may take some time. He’s the guy that makes this thing go. He gives us the best chance to win. We’re going to work towards that end.” Drafting Quarterback Jordan Love last year seemed to trigger the Rodgers drama in Green Bay, and the Packers may look to this years draft as the solution to ending it.
