The 2014 NFL officially kicked off last night with the first round selections. There were many shocks on the night, and it will only continue for the next two days.

Tonight, thirty-two former NFL players, one representing each team, will announce live selections for their respective team. Specifically, these former stars will announce second-round draft picks from Radio City Music Hall.  This marks the fourth year in which each selection in the second round is announced by a former player.

We bring you the full list of players by team.

Washington Redskins, London Fletcher (LB)

These players combined have an amazing track record: 11 Pro Football Hall of Famers (five from this year’s class), nearly 20 Super Bowl championships, and 150 Pro Bowl appearances between them all.

The Kansas City Chiefs do not have a second round pick, so Curley Culp will announce the third round pick, assuming the Chiefs do not trade into the second round.

As a reminder, the three-day draft format looks like this:

  • Day 1: Thursday, May 8 (Round 1)
  • Day 2: Friday, May 9 (Rounds 2-3)
  • Day 3: Saturday, May 10 (Rounds 4-7)

Morten Andersen, aka ‘Mr. Automatic’ will announce the Saints second round selection, which is the 58th overall pick in the draft. Andersen would play 12 seasons with the Saints, and was released after the 1994 season. He’d finish his career a 6x Pro Bowler with the Saints (7x overall), and booted a 60-yard field goal in 1991, which at the time was the second longest field goal since Tom Dempsey’s 63-yarder.
