And we now know what the league's newest players will be wearing when they hit the stage in Cleveland later this month.
On Friday, the NFL's official headwear partner, New Era, unveiled this year's official draft hat -- the hats that will be worn by prospects after they are selected in this month's draft. Featuring gray front panels and a black mesh back, each hat features a brim with the team's primary color, as well as a badged logo of the team's logo on the front with the NFL logo on the back.
According to New Era, that hat's silhouette is a Trucker Mesh 5950 fitted cap, which is "the first of its kind for this moment and is inspired by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which will be the backdrop to this year’s event in Cleveland."

Last month, the NFL officially announced its plans to host its draft in downtown Cleveland after holding last year's draft -- which was originally scheduled to take place in Las Vegas -- virtually due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The three-day event will take place at three historic Downtown Cleveland locations: FirstEnergy Stadium, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center, with a select number of prospects, fans and media permitted to attend.
