At this point, we know for a fact that Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson will be the No. 1 and No. 2 picks in the 1st Round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
But after that, nobody really knows what will happen and according to reports, the NFL wants to keep it that way so that the television ratings are higher.
According to a report from Pro Football Talk, the NFL had told the San Francisco 49ers to keep their choice at No. 3 a secret for as long as possible.
From Pro Football Talk:
Per a league source, the NFL is pressing the 49ers to keep their pick under wraps for as long as possible. The obvious goal is to maximize the TV ratings for the moment when the Commissioner announces San Francisco’s selection.
Remember, folks, it is never about the fans and it is always about the money!
