The countdown to the 2021 NFL Draft has begun! Tennessee Titans Draft Central, presented by Pinnacle is your hub for all-things Titans Draft.
The Titans are scheduled to have the 22nd overall selection and nine total picks in the 86th Annual National Football League Player Selection Meeting, beginning April 29 in Cleveland, Ohio.
The draft opens with the first round on Thursday, April 29 at 7 p.m. CT. Rounds 2 and 3 are set for the following evening, beginning at 6 p.m. CT, and the draft concludes with Rounds 4-7 on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT.
Multiple locations in Cleveland will be used during the festivities, including FirstEnergy Stadium, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center.
The NFL will welcome a select number of draft prospects to the draft stage in Cleveland with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, while others will participate remotely from their homes. Last year the entire draft was conducted in virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic after originally being planned for Las Vegas.
Titans personnel involved in the selection process, including executive vice president/general manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Vrabel, will be stationed together and following appropriate protocols in a temporary draft room in Nashville's MetroCenter as Saint Thomas Sports Park undergoes major renovations this offseason.
The last time the NFL had an in-person draft was 2019, when Nashville hosted the festivities for the first time. A record 600,000 fans attended the three-day affair, which is the premier event on the NFL's offseason calendar. The television audience in 2019 reached 47.5 million viewers.
