Biden’s 100th day, NFL draft Day 2, Elliot Page interview: 5 things to know Friday

Joe Biden marks 100 days as president

Traditionally used as a benchmark of progress for a new president, Joe Biden will complete his 100th day in office Friday. His administration has had to grapple with a pandemic, mass shootings, tensions between law enforcement and communities of color, and an increase of unaccompanied young migrants and families at the border. Biden has, so far, proved to be bolder in policy, more partisan in politics and more disciplined in pronouncements than the chatty centrist just about every politician in town thought they knew, Susan Page writes.

NFL draft to resume with Day 2 after an action-packed first round

The NFL draft will resume Friday evening (ABC, ESPN and NFL Network, 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT) with the second and third rounds. There’s still plenty of impressive talent available for teams on Day 2, including Georgia linebacker Azeez Ojulari, Alabama defensive lineman Christian Barmore and LSU wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. Thursday night’s first round provided its fair share of excitement as after the Jacksonville Jaguars selected Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence No. 1 overall, the San Francisco 49ers sent shockwaves through the event by selecting Trey Lance No. 3 overall. From there, the Chicago Bears selected Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields with the 11th pick after making a major trade with the New York Giants and Alabama quarterback Mac Jones fell to the New England Patriots at No. 15.
