This year, the NFL will continue its tradition of having former players from each team announce draft picks during later rounds of the draft. For the Indianapolis Colts, running back Joseph Addai (2006-’11) and middle linebacker Gary Brackett (2003-’11) will announce the team’s picks in Rounds 2 and 3, respectively.
Below is the complete list of players announcing picks for the 32 teams:
Addai was a stud in a short-lived career for the Colts. As a rookie, he led the Colts and all NFL rookies in rushing (1,081 yards), and helped the Colts win Super Bowl XLI. Addai set a then-Super Bowl record for receptions by a running back (10). In 78 games he carried the ball 1,095 times for 4,453 yards to go with 191 catches for 1,448 yards and 48 total touchdowns.
Brackett defied the odds to become one of the Colts’ biggest leaders during his tenure. He walked on at Rutgers, was undrafted when he signed with the Colts and overcame the death of his mother, father and brother during the early stages of his NFL career. Overall, he started 86 games for the Colts, totaling 709 tackles (15 TFL), 4.0 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 3 fumbles recovered, 12 interceptions, 29 pass breakups and 3 total touchdowns. He is still very active in the Indianapolis community.
In Round 2, the Colts hold pick Nos. 36, 37 and 49. In Round 3, they hold pick No. 67.
