Get ready for another Russell Wilson sighting.

Wilson, last year’s third round draft pick (No. 75 overall) turned Pro Bowler, will get some face time in the first round this year when he appears in and voices ESPN’s 2013 NFL Draft opening tease on Thursday, April 25. For Seahawks fans, it’s a good excuse to tune in to that day’s coverage, as the team does not own a pick in the first round after dealing the pick to the Minnesota Vikings for wide receiver Percy Harvin last month.

ESPN’s draft open will also showcase multiplatinum recording artist 50 Cent and English rock band The Heavy, whose music will be intermixed with photos and video of 115 draft prospects taken during March’s NFL Scouting Combine.

The Seahawks hold 10 picks in this week’s draft, the first of which will come at No. 56 overall in the draft’s second round on Friday, April 26.
