The 2015 NFL Draft will get underway a week from today and this year the league will recognize former NFL legends throughout the week-long celebration in Chicago.
32 former players, one representing each team, will be featured for Round 2 to announce team selections on Friday, May 1 beginning at 7:00 p.m. ET at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University.
Former Steelers and Hall of Fame cornerback Mel Blount is scheduled to announce the team’s second-round selection this year.
Blount was drafted by the Steelers in the third-round of the 1970 NFL Draft out of Southern University. He played 14 seasons with the Steelers during which he was a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time First-Team All-Pro. During his career, Blount recorded 57 regular-season interceptions. He was inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1989.
Last year, former Steelers quarterback Terry Hanratty announced the team’s second-round selection, defensive end Stephon Tuitt.
