The NFL announced Monday that 33 former players will get to announce picks during this week’s draft.

For the most part, the retired players will announce second-round picks. The New Orleans Saints don’t have a second-round pick, so Willie Roaf, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer, will announce their third-round pick.

Former tight end Alge Crumpler will announce Atlanta’s second-round pick. Retired defensive end Mike Rucker will announce Carolina’s second-round pick.

Dexter Jackson will announce Tampa Bay’s second-round pick. To be clear, that’s the Dexter Jackson that was a safety and was the Most Valuable Player in Super Bowl XXXVII and not the wide receiver by the same name who was taken by the Bucs in the second-round in 2008, but didn’t last long.
