In a great sign that fans will be involved in the NFL in 2021, the league announced on Monday that the NFL draft on April 29-May 1 will be a live fan-involved event in Cleveland, Ohio.

The league is still working out the details of how many players, teams and fans will be at the draft, but barring a setback in the coronavirus pandemic, it will be somewhat normal again.

Of course, the NFL draft was a virtual event in 2020 because of the pandemic. It was supposed to be in Las Vegas to kickoff and celebrate the Raiders’ move to the city. Now, the city will host the 2022 NFL draf1, which should be an incredible weekend.

For now, fans in Cleveland are on the clock. Awesome.
