After winning the Madden NFL 25 cover vote, former Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders spent Thursday doing promotional work for the game. As part of that, he appeared at the 2013 NFL Draft on Thursday night to announce the Lions' first-round pick. Calvin Johnson did the same thing after being named to the cover last year, and Sanders got to share the news that the Lions took Ansah this year.
Here's video of the announcement in case you somehow missed it or just want to watch it again:
