Alumni announcing AFC North draft picks
By Jamison Hensley
The NFL announced that 32 legendary NFL alumni, one representing each team, will announce their teams' second- and third-round draft picks from Radio City Music Hall on Friday. Here are the players who will be representing the AFC North teams:
CINCINNATI BENGALS: Tim Krumrie defensive tackle. The two-time Pro Bowl lineman played for the Bengals from 1983 to 1994. At the time of his retirement, his 34 sacks were the fourth-most in franchise history.
CLEVELAND BROWNS: Dick Schafrath, offensive tackle. The six-time Pro Bowl left tackle played for the Browns from 1959 to 1971. Nicknamed "The Mule," Schafrath reportedly wrestled a bear, ran 62 miles from Cleveland Browns stadium to a high school stadium, and canoed across Lake Erie without stopping.
BALTIMORE RAVENS: Jonathan Ogden, offensive tackle. The 2013 Hall of Fame lineman played for the Ravens from 1996 to 2007. He was the Ravens' first-ever draft pick and was named to the Pro Bowl 11 times.
PITTSBURGH STEELERS: Merril Hoge, running back. The former 10th-round pick played for the Steelers from 1987 to 1993. In seven seasons with Pittsburgh, Hoge ran for 3,115 yards and scored 34 touchdowns.
