For the first time ever, the NFL has announced today that "legendary" alumni from each NFL team will announce the second round draft picks for their team.â†µâ†µ
For the Bears, their presenter will be recent NFL Hall of Fame inductee Richard Dent. He'll go to the podium for the Bears' second round pick.â†µâ†µ
Among other stars scheduled for this honor are Franco Harris (Steelers), Dwight Clark (49ers), Doug Williams (Redskins), Chris Doleman (Vikings) and Jim Taylor (Packers). For the three teams without a second-round pick (Jets, Panthers, Dolphins), their representatives will announce that team's third-round choice.â†µâ†µ
