Barry Sanders To Announce Lions' Second-Round Pick At Draft Again?

Last year, the NFL decided to have former players announce the picks in the second round of the draft. It appears that will be the plan for the second round this year as well, and the Detroit Lions have requested that former running back Barry Sanders do the honors again.

Sanders announced the Lions' 44th overall pick in 2011, which turned out to be Boise State wide receiver Titus Young. The Lions also ended up with the 57th overall selection, and a fan got to announce the pick of Illinois running back Mikel Leshoure.
