The two-time winning Super Bowl quarterback will be at the podium on draft weekend.

The luck of the Irish will be with the Steelers this upcoming draft.

Terry Hanratty, the former Steeler and national championship winning quarterback at Notre Dame, will announce the team's second round draft selection during the NFL Draft in New York City next weekend.

A second round pick himself 45 years ago, Hanratty was the 30th overall selection in the 1969 Draft. The Steelers first selection that season was "Mean" Joe Greene out of North Texas. The '69 Draft was the first for former Steelers coach Chuck Noll.

Hanratty,66, played seven seasons with the Steelers, primarily as a backup for Terry Bradshaw, who was drafted No.1 overall in 1970. He did start 18 games for Pittsburgh that included a road victory over Cleveland during the Steelers first Super Bowl winning season in 1974. Hanratty replaced an injured Bradshaw during the final stages of the Steelers victory over the Cowboys in Super Bowl X.

In college, Hanratty teamed up with fellow former Steeler Rockey Bleier as the Irish won the 1966 National Championship. Hanratty completed over 55 percent of his passes with the Irish while throwing for 27 touchdowns and rushing for 16 more. He quarterbacked the Irish in one of the most iconic games in college football history, the 10-10 tie with also undefeated Michigan State, in 1966. Notre Dame finished the season at No.1 in the polls while MSU finished at No.2.
