Morten Andersen To Announce Saints 2nd Round Draft Pick
On a night when the Saints and the Falcons will be competing off the field, a former famous kicker who plays for both will represent the Black & Gold.
Morten Andersen (pictured) is the All-Time leading scorer in NFL history (2,544), playing for a quarter of a century in the NFL (1982-2007). He was drafted by the Saints in ’82, spending the next 13 seasons in New Orleans. He is the All-Time leading scorer in Saints history (1,318), as well as Falcons history (806), having spent 8 seasons with the Saints arch-rival in Atlanta.
The first round of the NFL draft begins May 8th, with the 2nd and 3rd round taking place the day after. Andersen will announce the Saints 2nd round draft pick at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Each team will be represented by a former player. Claude Humphrey will announce the Falcons pick.
Last season, former Saints safety Steve Gleason, who suffers from ALS, announced New Orleans’ 3rd round pick (video below).
