The NFL announced today that 32 “legendary alumni” representing each team will announce the second-round picks live from the podium Friday during the draft.

Team legends to announce 2nd round picks at draft

I wish fans could announce the 3rd round picks. The NFL needs some seriously good PR. Hmm, why is there alway booing at the draft? Who are the people that attend? I thought it was only for the media, journalists and parents and friends of top players. The people who boo appear to be drunk. Do they have to pay to attend the draft or does the NFL let any drunken bum off the street come in and disrupt the draft?

Yeah , remember when some hack sportswriters made up that story about Roethlisberger orchestrating a drive in the waning moments of some Super Bowl or other? Many average players do that stuff all the time.

I enjoy seeing past stars being recognized for their contributions to the game.  Guys on the list I'm most interested in seeing are those who played in the 60's: Paul Warfield and Jim Taylor. And while I think this is a nice idea, I do question the logistics - specifically in case of final minute trade involving 2nd round pick.

People were calling average players great before the internet. I do think there are very few great players myself and it makes me sick hearing it so much.

Great idea.  However, with the current labor situation, I do not think these former players should be doing this.

San Diego , Natrone Means (RB)


Isn't it bad enough the term "great" is thrown around too much these days like fans and even some complete sportswriter hacks calling Ben Roethlisberger or other average players great, now complete hacks or 1 year wonders are "Legendary?"

The internet is ruining the world.

Can't wait for teams to trade their 2nd and/or 3rd round picks leaving these guys sitting around awkwardly.
