As the NFL has done in the past, they revealed on Thursday that 32 former players — one representing each franchise — will announce all second-round picks at the 2014 NFL Draft. And, perhaps fittingly so, retired Hall of Fame linebacker Harry Carson will be representing the New York Football Giants.

A former fourth-round pick of the Giants in 1976, Carson will join 10 other Pro Football Hall of Famers — including five from the 2014 class — on the stage in the second round. The others include Aeneas Williams (Arizona Cardinals), Claude Humphrey (Atlanta Falcons), Andre Reed (Buffalo Bill), Walter Jones (Seattle Seahawks), Derrick Brooks (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Mike Singletary (Chicago Bears), James Lofton (Green Bay Packers), Curley Culp (Kansas City Chiefs), Larry Little (Miami Dolphins) and Willie Brown (Oakland Raiders).

In addition to the Hall of Famers, other representatives include Chad Pennington (New York Jets), Herman Moore (Detroit Lions), Marvin Harrison (Indianapolis Colts) and Morten Anderson (New Orleans Saints). Obviously, a few of those are also former Giants and should receive a nice hand from the crowd.

Last year, former offensive line Rich Seubert announced the Giants' third-round pick.

    A name to keep an eye on in round 2 or 3.

    Center – Weston Richburg, Colorado State: Though Richburg joined Swanson in starting 50 games at the college level, the general public did not receive a proper introduction until the Rams’ New Mexico Bowl win over Washington State. Richburg was a driving force in his team’s 48-point offensive explosion that day, an effort that included 228 yards on the ground.

    Athleticism’s not a concern here — Richburg topped all centers at the combine with a 5.1 40 time, and he played both linebacker and QB in high school.

    “If a team is looking for the next Alex Mack,” draft guru Gil Brandt wrote last month, “Richburg is that guy. He’ll be your starting center for the next 10 years.”
