Going on the clock in Cleveland, the spotlight again is on the quarterbacks, starting with the first two three picks. But there’s plenty of franchise-changing talent at other positions both in terms of immediate impact and long-term shine.

The key questions to ask right away: Did the team get the right player at a position of need? Did it pass on someone else who could have been a better fit? Was the player it took worthy of that high of selection vs. the promise of similar prospects? Based on our evaluations, we’re providing answers for what the picks mean now and later. 

From No. 1 through No. 32, this is your hub for in-depth live reaction in Round 1, grading every team and player fit. Keep checking back for updates throughout the entire first round.

NFL Draft grades 2021: Live picks, analysis from Round 1

1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson

Jacksonville can’t do better than this after earning the first overall pick and a generational talent at the position who stands out even in a top-heavy draft class. Urban Meyer begins his pro career with a strong-armed passer, great athlete and exceptional leader with plenty of winning pedigree. Lawrence, with the right support soon, can be an ace starter for several seasons.
