2013 NFL Draft: Orlando Pace will announce the Rams' day 2 picks

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Draft happens in a week, and in the 2nd and 3rd rounds future Orlando Pace will be on TV to announce the picks.

Recently the NFL started a tradition for the NFL Draft., and I'm not talking about the annual booing of Commissioner Rodger Goddell. I'm talking about bringing retired legends of NFL teams to announce the draft picks for the second day of the draft.

This year the St. Louis Rams representative will be future Hall of Famer Orlando Pace. Pace was the cornerstone on the Rams offensive line for years after he was drafted in 1997, first overall. Obviously, he was the last great left tackle to play for the Rams (Jake Long hasn't played yet). Honestly, it seems like a long time since Pace retired huh? I guess the disappointment of drafting Jason Smith in the first round the year Pace was released, helped us forget, but it's only been three years since Pace retired.

Last year, Torry Holt and Issac Bruce announced that Brian Quick was the Rams first second round selection. With Jeff Fisher's history of not selecting offensive linemen in the first round, wouldn't it be interesting if the Rams drafted an offensive linemen and Orlando Pace announced it? Who knows, maybe he would even help the kid out.

Just eight more days until the draft and nine days until Ram fans can cheer when Pace is on the TV, like the old days.
