The 2020 NFL season is over, and with the season having formally concluded we now know the entire order of the picks in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
As we’ve mentioned previously, the Minnesota Vikings are locked into the 14th overall pick. Their NFC North rivals will be picking at #7 (the Detroit Lions), #20 (the Chicago Bears), and #29 (the Green Bay Packers).
There are three teams that do not have picks in the first round of this year’s draft. Those teams are
- Houston Texans, who sent their pick to the Miami Dolphins in the trade a couple of seasons ago that brought them Laremy Tunsil
- Seattle Seahawks, who traded their pick to the New York Jets in exchange for safety Jamal Adams
- Los Angeles Rams, who haven’t picked in the first round since 2016 (and won’t again until 2024, barring a trade up), having sent their pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
With that, here is your complete selection order for this year’s draft. The numbers after each team represent their record and their strength of schedule. The team with the lower strength of schedule gets the higher pick in the draft.
