The first-round of the 2021 NFL Draft took place yesterday evening, live, in Cleveland, Ohio. Viewers were treated to a spectacle of music, montage, and of course those special moments during which college football's brightest young stars were finally allocated to their NFL teams for the 2021 season.
Most of us were able to capture the event in its entirety by simply logging on to the NFL Gamepass. In addition to last night's draft, the NFL's streaming application contains thousands of hours of great games, documentaries, and everything in-between. I can tell you from personal experience that it is well worth the money, AND that the NFL usually makes it free-to-use for a few months during the offseason, so it's always worth giving it a go.
Over the years, another popular way to watch the draft has been to live-stream it using Reddit. Unfortunately, the league has increasingly taken action against what it perceives to be piracy, and the Reddit live streams have been outlawed for the foreseeable future.
Fear not, though: there are alternatives:
