Turn back the clock in the second round
By Bill Williamson
The NFL has announced that a retired player from each team will announce their second-round pick.
It’s a fun idea. I hope these retirees are still fleet-footed. With the possibility of trades, these guys have to be ready to hit the podium at a moment’s notice. Let’s look at who will present each AFC West team:
Denver: Shannon Sharpe
My take: Good thing Denver has two picks in the round. Sharpe has a lot to say.
Kansas City: Willie Lanier
My take: I couldn’t think of a better representative.
Oakland: Willie Brown
My take: Perhaps the Hall of Fame cornerback will be calling the name of the next Oakland CB.
San Diego: Natrone Means
My take: A.J. Smith means business and Natrone will deliver the news.
