Welcome to the 2021 NFL draft! The first round of the league’s college player selection meeting has arrived and it projects to be a highly interesting one from the New England Patriots’ perspective: Owning the 15th overall selection, they are seen as prime candidates to make a big move up the board — or bolster their roster in some other fashion.

The 15th overall selection is scheduled to be made between 10:20 p.m. ET and 10:30 p.m. ET at the latest. Realistically, however, it will happen earlier given that not all teams will wait until the end of their 10-minute window to announce their selection. Based on years past, you should expect New England’s pick to be made at around 9:20 p.m. ET.
