NFL Draft order 2021: Updated list of all 259 picks over seven rounds and sorted by team
Here is the complete 2021 NFL Draft order for Rounds 1-7, including a list of picks by team for all 32 franchises.The draft is considered to be a solid one, and is especially strong at quarterback, receiver, and on the offensive line. Teams that need upgrades on that side of the ball should have a chance to make some big moves.
A new WNBA season is fast approaching with training camps set to begin later this month. Before we get to the games, though, it's time for one of the league's biggest annual events.
The 2021 WNBA Draft will once again be held virtually amid the COVID-19 pandemic. WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert will announce the picks live on television, and prospects will participate in the festivities remotely.
"The opportunity for these elite athletes to reach this pinnacle and share this special moment with their families, friends and WNBA fans, even in a virtual format, will make for a truly memorable night especially as we commemorate the league's 25th season and continue building momentum for the future of the league," Engelbert said of this year's draft.
NFL eyeing onsite offseason workouts; NFLPA prefers virtual setup
The NFL indicated meetings will likely remain virtual for the foreseeable future, but this year’s offseason workouts are not expected to be fully virtual like they were in 2020. However, the union has offered pushback to an onsite offseason returning this year.As of now, teams can schedule onsite OTAs to begin April 19. This is, however, contingent on no offseason plan being agreed to between the NFL and NFLPA. The union has offered pushback to an onsite offseason returning this year, with Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reporting little progress has been made between the sides on this front.

Breanna Stewart had the best April of any basketball player — even Stephen Curry .
The month of April has historically been kind to Breanna Stewart. No other professional basketball player had as great of a month as Stewart. Not even Stephen Curry and his record-breaking 3-point barrage. Because while Curry is draining magical shots to average nearly 40 points a game in April, it's Stewart who is collecting hardware every week. Stewart and her UMMC Ekaterinburg teammates added another title on Tuesday night in the Russian Premier League. The squad won the domestic title with a 3-0 final series sweep of Dynamo Kursk. The final two games were decided by 17 and 19 points, respectively.
