Big Walt to announce Seahawks picks

And the Seahawks’ second- and third-round picks in the 2012 NFL Draft will be announced by …

Not commissioner Roger Goodell, who handles the announcements for the first-round picks. No, the league is turning the Friday duties over to former players, and nine-time Pro Bowl tackle Walter Jones will be there for the Seahawks.

The NFL began involving former players last year, when Hall of Fame defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy announced the Seahawks’ third-round pick (they did not have a pick in the second round).
