The 2021 NFL Draft begins on Thursday afternoon and there’s expected to be more surprises (paradox) than ever. We know that Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson will be drafted, probably in the top two, and then Kyle Pitts, Ja’Marr Chase, Penei Sewell, Mac Jones, Patrick Surtain II, and 27 other prospects will find homes.

But there are also potential veteran trades coming too.

Julio Jones, Zach Ertz, Allen Robinson, Jimmy Garoppolo, Stephon Gilmore, and others have already been rumored to be on the move this week. Will any deals happen on Thursday? Or Friday?

The LA Rams don’t pick until 57th overall, taking them out of the action on Thursday, but what are you noticing, what are you thinking, and what are you hoping for from all the day one action?

Thursday Rumors:

  • Aaron Rodgers is unhappy with the Packers and has reportedly told them he wants out, according to Adam Schefter.
  • There is no word on who the 49ers will draft and that has created a ton of rumors about where the QBs will land.
  • The Saints might want to trade up into the top-10, potentially for Penei Sewell according to rumors.
