Former Bengal Ken Riley to announce pick

May, 2, 2014
Former Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Ken Riley will be one of 32 former players to announce second-round picks at next week's draft, the NFL announced this week.

Riley will announce the Bengals' 55th overall pick live from Radio City Music Hall next Friday night. This will mark the fourth year the league has had former players announce the second-round picks.

Along with Riley, former players Aeneas Williams, Mike Singletary, Dat Nguyen, Andre Reed, Marvin Harrison, Willie McGinest, Morten Anderson and Derrick Brooks will be announcing picks for the teams they once played for.

Riley starred at Florida A&M before getting taken by the Bengals in the sixth round of the 1969 draft. That following season was only the second in franchise history.

He played in parts of 15 seasons, all for the Bengals. The all-pro had 65 career interceptions, including his single-season high of nine in 1976.
