The National Football League announced today that 32 NFL former players, one representing each team, will announce live on Friday, May 9, second-round Draft picks from Radio City Music Hall. This marks the fourth year in which each selection in the second round is announced by a former player.
For the Arizona Cardinals, that will be Aeneas Williams, who was voted into the Hall of Fame this year. He also had the honor in 2011, when he was the one to announce the selection of running back Ryan Williams. That was the first year the league began doing this, in part to get more people watching the second day of the NFL Draft.
Williams announced the selection of Ryan Williams in 2011, Roger Wehrli announced the selection of Jamell Fleming in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft (Arizona had no second round pick) and Larry Centers announced the selection of Kevin Minter last year.
The list of players scheduled to make selections includes 11 Pro Football Hall of Famers, with five from the Class of 2014. Combined, these players have nearly 20 Super Bowl championships and 150 Pro Bowl appearances between them.
