Former stud defensive tackle Warren Sapp will read for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as another recent inductee, and linebacker Dave Robinson is set to do the same for the Green Bay Packers.
Which of this year's Hall of Famers who are announcing picks at the draft had the best career?
The NFL began the three-day draft format in 2010, with the second and third rounds taking place on the second day. In addition to the stars being given the honor to announce exciting new prospects joining their former teams, fans will be able to get in on the action as well.
Thanks to Bud Light’s sponsorship of Round 2, one fan representing each franchise will get VIP treatment in New York City, which includes green-room access and a dinner reception with the aforementioned former players. Those fans will be card-carriers for their team's selections, and one will have the opportunity to read the draft choice on stage with the high-profile alums.
Day 2 of the draft will commence at 6:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on ESPN/ESPN 2 and NFL Network.
