The 2021 NFL Draft opens on Thursday night with seven Nittany Lions hoping to hear their names called. Penn State has had at least five players chosen in four of the last five drafts and that trend seems likely to continue. Micah Parsons will be in Cleveland for the first round, where he's expected to be an early pick. He's looking to be joined by Jayson Oweh in the opening round, while Pat Freiermuth and Shaka Toney are looking to break into the second and third. Michal Menet, Will Fries, and Lamont Wade round out the Nittany Lions hoping to be picked, but even if they aren't selected, are sure to sign quickly as undrafted free agents. 

Here are all of the Penn State details you need heading into the action.

  • START TIMES: 8 p.m. (4/29), 7 p.m. (4/30), 12 p.m. (5/01)
