Each NFL team had a retired player announce one of the team’s draft selections. Among the other retired players participating included Deion Sanders (Atlanta), Wayne Chrebet (New York Jets), Warren Sapp (Tampa Bay) and Steve Gleason (New Orleans). Gleason’s participation provided the most poignant moment of the entire draft because he’s suffering from ALS.
