Super Bowl XLIV champion Roman Harper to announce Saints Round 2 pick
A host of former NFL stars will be announcing their old teams’ picks in the second round of the 2023 NFL draft on Friday night, with two-time Pro Bowl safety Roman Harper welcoming the newest member of the black and gold. Who better to embrace them than a Super Bowl XLIV champion?
Harper was a second-round pick himself, having been selected at No. 43 overall out of Alabama back in 2006. He went on to start 152 of the 169 games he played in the NFL, including the playoffs, which is the kind of career any rookie should aspire to. Maybe he’ll get lucky and call out someone from his alma mater like Crimson Tide safety Brian Branch. The Saints are scheduled to make their pick at No. 40 overall.
Another former Saints standout will be on hand for the night’s proceedings: left tackle Terron Armstead, who will be announcing his newest Miami Dolphins teammate. Armstead earned his fourth Pro Bowl nod last season after signing with Miami in free agency, having achieved an impressive career in his own right as a third-round pick.
Round 2 of the 2023 draft will kick off at 6 p.m. CT, with broadcasts shown nationally on ABC, ESPN, and NFL Network.
