Round 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft was filled with drama and intrigue in Cleveland. We already knew who the Jacksonville Jaguars were going to take in one with the New York Jets locked in two.
The drama started with the San Francisco 49ers at three after they rose from the 12th selection. In the end, San Francisco added North Dakota state quarterback Trey Lance. Now he is in a great position. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears got what could have been the draft steal.
On the other hand, the Las Vegas Raiders and New York Giants made great strides in Round 1, while the Green Bay Packers could be on the brink of losing their future Hall of Fame quarterback.
These are among the winners and losers of the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
