NFL draft live blog: Follow every pick, trade

With a loaded 2021 NFL draft class stockpiled with quarterbacks, plenty of teams are hoping their future will be brighter after this weekend. Which team will be the biggest surprise of the draft? Which player will be the biggest bust? Will there be drama surrounding a certain reigning NFL MVP? We’ll be following all the action live here on Yahoo Sports.

Welcome to the 2021 NFL draft!

It has already been an eventful day. While rumors surrounding the draft continue to swirl, news of Aaron Rodgers' apparent discontentment in Green Bay emerged as a pre-draft bombshell. 

Could Rodgers be on the move during Thursday night's first round? Will the Rodgers situation affect the decision-making of the San Francisco 49ers? What other trades could be in the works? Those are the major storylines bubbling as we inch closer to the start of Round 1. 

The first two picks should come and go without much surprise. Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is considered a lock to go No. 1 to the Jacksonville Jaguars while another quarterback, BYU's Zach Wilson, is expected to go second to the New York Jets. 

The intrigue starts with the 49ers at No. 3. San Francisco traded up to this spot with eyes on a quarterback. But which quarterback? Will it be Alabama's Mac Jones? Or will it be North Dakota State's Trey Lance? What about Ohio State star Justin Fields?

Let the drama begin.
