Legendary Safety Brig Owens to Announce the Washington Redskins 2nd Round Pick

1

The upcoming NFL Draft already made a big change when it moved its location to Chicago this year. It’s adding another wrinkle, too, inviting former legendary football players -- the most it ever has -- to make their respective team’s selections for Round 2.

Brig Owens, the former safety, will announce the selection for the Redskins, a team where he built an impressive resume that includes 36 interceptions.

Owens, a member of the "Washington Redskins Ring of Fame," played for the team from 1966-77, taking on an important role during the Redskins’ run to Super Bowl VII in 1972.
