Legendary franchise linebackers Jessie Tuggle and Keith Brooking will announce draft picks for the Falcons, per the NFL. Brooking will announce the second-round pick, while Tuggle will announce the third-round pick.
The league says it allocated the second-round picks to be announced by former franchise first-round picks, while the third-round picks are announced by latter-round selections.
Tuggle’s an undrafted great who saw one of his sons, one Grady Jarrett, drafted in the fifth round in 2015 and ascend to become one of the NFL’s better defensive tackles.
Brooking was just spotlighted by The Falcoholic earlier today for his illustrious career in the late 90s and early aughts for the team.
The NFL says both players will be involved in community service events around Nashville ahead of the big weekend and will be on site to mentor the younger players who are to be drafted.
We’ll look forward to hearing who Tuggle and Brooking announce as the newest members of the Dirty Bird flock, and are happy to see such great Falcons representing the franchise in prime time.
