The NFL draft will return to a live, in-person event in 2021 after the COVID-19 pandemic forced a virtual presentation in 2020. Cleveland will serve as the backdrop for the latest group of NFL hopefuls.

Though the draft can now be held in person, one thing that won’t change from 2020 is the surplus of live streaming options, whether through cable subscriptions, apps or dedicated streaming sites. The 2021 NFL Draft — comprising 259 picks and seven rounds — will begin Thursday at 8 p.m. ET, running through Saturday. The event will be carried on cable via ABC, ESPN and NFL Network, depending on your viewing preferences. That means viewers will have multiple streaming options for the draft as well, including through ESPN and NFL’s digital platforms.

ABC, ESPN and NFL Network will carry their own coverage of the event through the first two days, with ABC simulcasting ESPN’s coverage on Day 3. Mike Greenberg will debut as NFL draft host on ESPN. The broadcast will feature draft guru Mel Kiper Jr., NFL analysts Louis Riddick and Booger McFarland, NFL insiders Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter and NFL host Suzy Kolber.

The NFL Network broadcast team will consist of Rich Eisen, Daniel Jeremiah and Charles Davis on the main set, with guest hosts appearing on different days of the draft.

The ABC broadcast will feature a more college football-friendly broadcast, with the “College GameDay” cast of Rece Davis, Maria Taylor, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack providing coverage. Todd McShay and Jesse Palmer will also be a part of the ABC broadcasts as well.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch the 2021 NFL Draft, regardless of your platform of choice:
