With the 25th pick in the second round of the NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks select …

No one knows that. Not now anyway. Not even general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll. Sure, they know who they’d like to draft and even have a list of players they think will be available with the 57th pick overall. But that exact player they’ll tab next Friday? No way. Too many variables. Too many what-ifs and what-are-they-doings to be played out.

But they do know is who will announce that selection: Cortez Kennedy, the eight-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle who was the Seahawks’ first-round draft choice in 1990.

The NFL is bringing in former players to announce the second-round picks at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Here’s the rest of the list:

Cardinals: CB Aeneas Williams

Falcons: LB Jessie Tuggle

Ravens: LB Peter Boulware

Bills: WR Andre Reed

Panthers: FB Brad Hoover

Bears: DE Richard Dent

Bengals: OT Anthony Munoz

Browns: WR Paul Warfield

Cowboys: DE Charles Haley

Broncos: TE Shannon Sharpe

Lions: RB Barry Sanders

Packers: FB Jim Taylor

Texans: CB Aaron Glenn

Colts: LB Jeff Herrod

Jaguars: S Donovin Darius

Chiefs: LB Willie Lanier

Dolphins: CB Sam Madison

Vikings: DE Chris Doleman

Patriots: LB Andre Tippett

Saints: OT Willie Roaf

Giants: RB Joe Morris

Jets: DT Marty Lyons

Raiders: DB Willie Brown

Eagles: DB Troy Vincent

Steelers: RB Franco Harris

Rams: Marshall Faulk

Chargers: RB Natrone Means

49ers: WR Dwight Clark

Buccaneers: S John Lynch

Titans: DE Jevon Kearse

Redskins: QB Doug Williams

The Panthers, Dolphins and Jets do not have second-round picks, so Hoover, Madison and Lyons will announce their third-round selections.

Tying the present to the past is a nice touch, and will only enhance the second-round experience for the TV viewers.
