CLEVELAND (WJW)– The 2021 NFL Draft is in Cleveland and we could hear some local names called from the main stage.

Liam Eichenberg, offensive tackle, Notre Dame, St. Ignatius High School

Eichenberg was a top recruit in high school, drawing early attention from Ohio State. He was a three-year starter at Notre Dame with a big senior season.

Eichenberg tested positive for COVID-19 so he did not attend the modified combine in Indianapolis. We could see him selected in the second or third rounds.

Luke Farrell, tight end, Ohio State, Perry High School

Lake County’s Luke Farrell is reliable in the pass game and a great blocker. While Ohio State’s offense is not tight-end friendly, he was still able to make an impression.

Farrell is a likely late-round selection for a team that needs more depth at tight end.

Bryce Hargrove, offensive guard, Pittsburgh, Coventry High School

Akron’s Bryce Hargrove played in all of Pitt’s games the last three years. He’s an aggressive blocker and excels most in the pass game.

He’s an underrated guard and likely late-round pick.
