A few days before the start of the 2021 NFL Draft, the U.S. football league, Betcris, one of the main sports betting operators in Latin America, has communicated that, as Official Partner and Official Sponsor of the NFL in the sports betting category, it will present this Draft through the league’s digital platforms, so millions of fans of this sport in the Spanish-speaking countries of the region can enjoy this content.
The Draft is one of the most anticipated events in American football. It is a key moment for the different teams to strengthen their squads facing the next season of this exciting sport. The mechanism indicates that, between April 29th and May 1st, there will be seven rounds of selection. It will undoubtedly be a very active process, which will include a series of agreements between the teams, all competing for the 256 players who will be at their disposal.
Jacksonville Jaguars will be the first club to pick in the Draft, and subsequent teams and picks will be affected, as they negotiate swaps to select prospects. Recently, the San Francisco 49ers were able to secure the third overall pick in the draft through a multi-team deal, while the Miami Dolphins dropped their first pick at No. 6 in exchange for more future picks, and the Philadelphia Eagles rose to 12th position in the Draft after agreeing with other teams. Since the beginning of last college football season, Trevor Lawrence, the outstanding quarterback of the Clemson Tigers, has been singled out as the top prospect of this Draft. It’s very possible for him to be the first pick for the Jacksonville Jaguars on April 29th, when the first round of the 2021 Draft begins.
Betcris has provided extensive coverage of NFL games and sports betting in the region since it became an Official Partner of the League and Official Sponsor of the NFL in the sports betting category in 2020, as well as an Official Sponsor of the Super Bowl LV. As it is ready for the next Draft, the company is preparing a series of betting lines, as well as promotional activities that will provide high-value experiences for its customers. The 2021 NFL Draft will be covered on various television channels (mainly, ESPN, Fox Deportes and their affiliated networks in LatAm) and online streaming platforms, and will be presented in its entirety through the NFL GAME PASS platform.
