You can't blame the NFL for thinking of ways to get people to watch the later rounds of the draft. As the NFL commisioner, Roger Goodell, makes all first round draft choices, the NFL has been asking former players to announce second and third round picks.

In one week the 2015 NFL Draft will begin and Pittsburgh Steelers Hall of Fame cornerback Mel Blount will make the team's second round announcement. Blount, who has a rule named after him in the NFL rule book, will be a welcome face for Steelers fans everywhere as he announces the next player to be given the honor of playing in the great city of Pittsburgh.

The main question on everyone's mind is simple: Will Blount wear his classic cowboy hat on stage in Chicago to make the announcement? I guess we will have to watch to find out. Man, the NFL sure is good aren't they?
