#NFL teams are so locked in on offense that they were drafting backup QBs by the end of Round 2 in the #NFLdraft. That and more in our annual takeaways file:
He still pushed off.
From last night: Alabama ties modern record with 6 players selected in Round 1 of the #NFLDraft.…
Rams GM Les Snead says he has tested positive for COVID-19 and will conduct the draft from home rather than at the team's draft headquarters in Malibu. Snead has some symptoms.

That’s quite a haul for the Giants to trade down 9 spots.
Way too much Kings of Leon slander on my timeline.
Make sure you follow the #NFLDraft2021 here in ESPN Live. It’s the only way to fly.
The last time the Packers didn’t have a future Hall of Fame quarterback on their roster was in 1991.
Aaron told Packers he doesn’t want to return as @AdamSchefter said and I think it’s more than a contract deal, I think he’s pretty strongly convicted that he doesn’t want to go back to Packers.

The real question is where Aaron Rodgers will play between now now and when he finishes his career in Minnesota.
My guy @AdamSchefter just teased a major story he will report after this next NFL Live break. I have access to his vault. The details...worth the watch, listen and eventually the read on ESPN!!! #NFLDraft2021 #NFL

Adding this timely column from @SethWickersham to our ESPN NFL draft profile thread. Like his father before him, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan is looking for a quarterback, "a guy whom he grooms, teaches, and ultimately, allows to define his legacy."…
I don’t have many draft takes. Don’t know who the 49ers want at No. 3. But most people who have done the actual drafting tell us that teams rarely, if ever, are still ranking the top prospects during draft week. We should listen!
"The technology forced us to realize that the way we approach the game is antiquated. Now you can see that we can have a productive draft or free agency without being face-to-face." Pandemic draft adjustments aren't all bad. @CameronWolfe and NFL Nation:
Martenzie Johnson on Ohio State QB Justin Fields: "What Fields may have learned over these last three months is what nearly every Black person does trying to live in American society: No matter what you do, all anyone sees is that you’re Black.”
Michigan DE Kwity Paye's backstory is the most extraordinary in the draft, and @TheHallieG tells it well. "How come theirs is different from ours?" he asked her. Why were they here? What had she been through? What haunted her still?…

This could also come into play with pass blocking schemes. To me, it would be a short-term issue as players adjust, but potentially an issue nonetheless.
TB12 objecting to the NFL’s newly-adopted relaxation of number requirements. QBs will definitely need to adjust the personnel assumptions they once based on jersey number.
(There hasn’t been an overtime game in the preseason since 2014, per @EliasSports, but the NFL went ahead and officially banned it this week.)
How the #NFL thinks it can fix onside kicks, improve officiating and curb taunting with a series of modest proposals. They even addressed an issue that hasn’t surfaced in 6 years!…
McKay also said there will be a point of emphasis in 2021 on taunting, as requested by coaches. Not on celebrations but in exchanges between teams and players during the games.
McKay also said that the committee looked at over 100 plays to get a feel for why offensive holding went down so dramatically in 2020. Pledged a "clear understanding" of how it will be called in 2021. NFL EVP Troy Vincent echoes that pledge.
On a press call, competition committee chairman Rich McKay says a rule to expand the area that prohibits blocks below the waist will be revisited in May. He said it could have passed today but there are lingering questions.
Here’s our initial news story on today’s #NFL rule changes. Will be updated.
Here is the full list of rules approved today by owners, including a modest expansion of responsibility for replay officials.
To be clear, this is a longtime rule that is part of the league’s agreement with its manufacturing partners.
Per NFL rules, if a player wants to change his number THIS SEASON, he would have to buy out the existing inventory of jersey distributors. If he wants to give notice now to change his number NEXT SEASON, there would be no requirement to buy out inventory.…
The proposal Adam is referring to would limit the number of players the kickoff receiving team could have within 25 yards of the ball. Could have 9, at most.…
Announcement: #NFL's 2021 schedule will be announced May 12.
Worth noting amid apparent ongoing discussions with XFL……
