Willie McGinest, former Patriots defensive lineman, is set to announce the team’s second round pick this Friday night.

This is the fourth year that the NFL has decided to bring back older players to announce a pick, and I personally like it. It gives us fans a chance to see former greats announce the future of the team they once played for.

McGinest played in the NFL for 15 seasons, 12 of them in New England. He had an extremely productive career, finishing with 582 total tackles, 86 sacks, 16 forced fumbles, and four touchdowns. McGinest was a key cog in those three Super Bowl winning teams back in the early 2000′s, and I know that he is one of the most respected players not only among the Patriots organization, but in the entire league.

According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, Troy Brown, Kevin Faulk, and Andre Tippett were the three Pats that received the honor of doing this in year’s past.
