Irony alert: Marshall Faulk to announce the St. Louis Rams second round pick

Soon-to-be Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk will announce the St. Louis Rams second-round pick at the 2011 NFL Draft this year.

Marshall Faulk will announce the St. Louis Rams second-round pick at Radio City Music Hall next Friday. The NFL is inviting franchise icons to announce picks for the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft this year. 

Faulk will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year, in August. His induction helped the Rams secure a spot in the pre-season Hall of Fame Game. Now, Faulk will be on-stage announcing the team's second round pick. There's a small bit of irony in the Rams being so closely tied to Faulk this year after Faulk made some public comments accusing Spagnuolo and Devaney of being less than willing to acknowledge the Rams past, mostly because of some decisions to move photos of Faulk and the Greatest Show on Turf team at Rams Park. 

More ironic could be Faulk announcing a new Rams running back with their second-round pick. Many believe that the Rams could target Illinois RB Mikel Leshoure, Va Tech's Ryan Williams or Oklahoma State's Kendall Hunter with their second-round pick this year. That player would complement and possibly replace, eventually, Steven Jackson, just like Jackson replaced Faulk.
