For the fifth straight year, the NFL will have former NFL players announce second-round picks during the draft and they announced the list of participants on Thursday.

  1. Ickey Woods? Awesome. I hope he throws in an Ickey Shuffle while announcing the pick.

  2. Wow some great names. The one that sticks out the most to me is Emerson Boozer. I still remember watching the ’69 Super Bowl as a little kid and suffering while my Baltimore Colts lost that game. Possibly the biggest upset ever. A classic. I still can’t believe it. I think that if that game was played 10 times the Colts would win 9, but they didn’t win the one that counted. Here’s to you Mr. Boozer.

  3. They shouldn’t announce these players names before the they pick for their old teams, be way cooler as a surprise!

    Best non-HOF on the list….Jon Runyan

    No, that would be Kenny Easley.

    Dixon and Ty Law were no slouches either.

  5. I’m shocked the Vikings aren’t using a former Packer to announce their pick.

    I hope he announces that he’s gonna get some cold cuts

    Aaron Hernandez is available.


    No, I’d say he won’t be available for anything but a communal shower for a very long time.

  8. Most people don’t realize it because his career was cut so short, plus he played in South Alaska (Seattle) but the best safety in the history of the NFL is UCLA grad, Ken Easley. If you don’t believe it, ask Ronnie Lott. He was like Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas combined into one amazing football player.

  9. Joe Kapp. A football player’s football player. And as a bonus, he can still throw hands like a young guy ! Sort of.

  10. The Vikings should have asked kicker Gary Anderson to announce their pick. Keeping it real, he would show up to the podium 5 minutes late left before shifting wide to the left in making the annoucement.

    Hardly matters who the Vikings pick, PFT will be filled with predictions of the player’s pending HOF status and how he is the missing piece to the Superbowl.

  11. Slightly disappointed in Pat Terrell for the Panthers. If they wanted someone from the ’96 NFC title game team, I would have picked Frank Garcia or Anthony Johnson. AJ was the 1,000-yard RB, Garcia was the center who won a national title with Washington in college and went on to host a talk radio show in Charlotte. Would love for one of them to announce a pick for us.

  12. Whoever the Bengals select in Round 2 should immediately get the nickname “Cold Cuts.”

  13. Just about emulates each teams draft needs. =============================
    In the case of the Steelers, absolutely! They could definitely use a cornerback of Mel Blount’s talent!
