The NFL is bringing in alums from each franchise to announce the selections on day two of the 2012 NFL Draft, which includes the second and third rounds. Announcing the picks by the Chicago Bears will be former linebacker Otis Wilson, who helped Chicago to a win in Super Bowl XX.
The NFL disclosed Monday that 33 of its alumni — one for each team and two for the— will announce each second- and third-round pick on Friday’s second day of the draft. The league began this approach last year and hopes to make it an annual tradition.
Wilson spent eight seasons with Chicago and earned one trip to the Pro Bowl.
The 2012 NFL Draft begins on Thursday, April 26.
