BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Fred Jackson never heard his name called during the NFL Draft. But that didn’t stop him from racking up the third-most rushing yards in franchise history.
Friday night, the cleat will be on the other foot. Jackson was selected as the Bills legend to announce the team’s second-round pick during the 2023 NFL Draft in Kansas City.
The Bills third-round pick will be announced by a TikTok star Josh Richards, a Canadian Bills fan who has more than 20 million followers on the social media platform.
The league released the full list of NFL Legends and Active Players who will announce Day 2 picks on Friday. The list can be seen below.
This is not the first time Jackson will be involved in announcing a Bills pick. Most memorably, he was on stage with Andre Reed and Pancho Billa in 2018 when they announced the selection of Harrison Phillips (video).
The Bills are scheduled to make two picks Friday — 59th overall (2nd round) and 91st overall (3rd round) — after taking tight end Dalton Kincaid in the first round.
