Hour-Long Draft to Feature 32 Selections Across Four Rounds; Atlas LC is On the Clock with #1 Pick
NBC Sports’ Paul Burmeister and Ryan Boyle to Anchor Coverage; PLL Coaches to Join and Provide Analysis
STAMFORD, Conn. – April 23, 2021 – NBC Sports and Peacock begin coverage of the 2021 Premier Lacrosse League season this Monday, April 26, with an hour-long presentation of the 2021 College Draft presented by Champion at 10:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN and Peacock Premium.
NBC Sports’ Paul Burmeister and analyst Ryan Boyle will anchor coverage of the four-round draft, which will feature 32 total selections by all eight teams. PLL coaches will join draft coverage to provide analysis of their collegiate selections and preview the upcoming 2021 season.
“What makes this draft really exciting is that you’re going to see big-time players with names you know well from collegiate lacrosse get picked not only off the top in Round 1, but throughout Rounds 2-4,” said Paul Burmeister.
The College Draft is headlined by Michael Sowers (Duke), Jeff Teat (Cornell), Mac O’Keefe (Penn State), and JT Giles-Harris (Duke), who all hope to have their name called near the top of the draft on Monday evening. Atlas LC owns six picks, including the first overall pick and four of the first 11 picks, and Chaos LC will also make six selections. The expansion Cannons LC will make their first selection at pick nine, after trading their first-round pick to Atlas LC when they traded for Paul Rabil in March.
