Tracking Pro Day Results Ahead of 2021 NFL Draft article feature image

With the frenzy of NFL free agency finally calming down, our attention has been turned to this year’s incoming rookie class.

The 2021 NFL Draft will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 29 and will wrap up on Saturday, May 1. Individual schools’ pro days will have to suffice as the main scouting showcases leading up to the event absent a traditional NFL combine this season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The pro days are staggered, with most taking place from March 5 to April 9.

Below are The Action Network’s top draft prospects broken out by school whom all savvy fantasy managers should be tracking.
