Ex-players to again announce 2nd-round draft picks
Second-round pick turned Hall of Famer Dermontti Dawson looks to
bring some good karma to the Pittsburgh Steelers when he announces
their selection Friday at the NFL draft.
For the second straight year, the league will have retired
players announce the choices by their former teams in the second
round. Dawson and former Saint Willie Roaf will both be inducted
into the Hall of Fame this year. The group announced Monday
includes four other Hall of Famers: the Lions’ Barry Sanders, the
Raiders’ Willie Brown, the Cardinals’ Roger Wehrli and the
Dolphins’ Dwight Stephenson.
Washington, Oakland, New Orleans and Arizona do not have
second-round selections, so their representatives will announce
their third-round picks.
The other players are Alge Crumpler (Falcons), Matt Stover
(Ravens), Phil Hansen (Bills), Mike Rucker (Panthers), Otis Wilson
(Bears), Isaac Curtis (Bengals), Gary Collins (Browns), Chad
Hennings (Cowboys), Terrell Davis (Broncos), LeRoy Butler
(Packers), Danny Clark (Texans), Marvin Harrison (Colts), Fred
Taylor (Jaguars), Will Shields (Chiefs), Anthony Carter (Vikings),
Troy Brown (Patriots), Michael Strahan (Giants), Wesley Walker
(Jets), Brian Westbrook (Eagles), Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt
(Rams), Courtney Hall (Chargers), Jesse Sapolu (49ers), Walter
Jones (Seahawks), Dexter Jackson (Buccaneers), Eddie George
(Titans), and Ken Harvey (Redskins).
