We made it. The 2021 NFL Draft is finally here.

The first round of the three-day mega event begins live from Cleveland (with players and fans again!) on Thursday night (5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m. ET). It airs live on ESPN, NFL Network and ABC. You can also stream the draft on fuboTV by clicking here.

The Las Vegas Raiders have the No. 17 overall pick in the first round and each team has 10 minutes to make their selection in the first round. Still, if you want to tune in just for the Raiders’ pick, you probably shouldn’t do so past 6:30 p.m. PT just to be safe.

The Raiders will likely look at right tackles, safeties and perhaps linebackers in the first round.


Day 1, Round 1: Thursday, April 29th (5:00 p.m. PT)

Raiders have the No. 17 overall selection.

Day 2, Rounds 2 and 3: Friday, April 30th (4:00 p.m. PT)

Raiders have the No. 43 (second round), No. 79 and No. 80 (third) overall selections.

Day 3, Rounds 4-7: Saturday, May 1st (9:00 a.m. PT)

Raiders have the No. 162, No. 167 (fifth round) , No. 200 (sixth) and No. 230 (seventh) selections.
