The draft is always sprinkled with uplifting stories, but Jim Kelly's literally lifted the crowd at Chicago's historic Auditorium Theatre out of their seats for a standing ovation.

Kelly, a cancer survivor, Pro Football Hall of Famer and all-time Miami great, was chosen to announce the Buffalo Bills' second-round pick. Before reading the pick, Kelly took a moment to thank his supporters.

Watch the touching moment in the video below:

The Bills used the 50th-overall pick to select Ronald Darby, a cornerback from Florida State, partially ruining the sanctity of the moment for diehard Miami fans.
