We have finally arrived at the 2021 NFL Draft and we are all anxiously awaiting to see where our favorite Notre Dame Fighting Irish football players land over the next three days.

I am not a fan of the draft format compared to what it used to be (Saturday and Sunday were perfect) but it’s still a very exciting time and can be fun to watch — if done correctly.

NOTRE DAME PLAYERS TO WATCH

Obviously Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is for certain — but that doesn’t mean there can’t be or won’t be a few surprises. While it looks unlikely right now, both Liam Eichenberg and Aaron Banks have appeared in the 1st round on some mock drafts throughout the process. Even if those two aren’t picked on Thursday night, the way in which the draft takes shape will absolutely affect where they land on Friday or Saturday).

OPEN THREAD

The open thread is ready for business below. I know many of us are on Twitter for most of the draft, but I encourage you to vent and do other things that require more than 280 characters here. I’ll try to pass along as much info (and random stuff) as possible.
