Posted Apr 17, 2013

Chris Kelsay is scheduled to announce the Bills second-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Recently-retired Buffalo Bills DE Chris Kelsay is scheduled to announce the Bills second-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, the league announced on Wednesday.

To hear Kelsay's reaction to being selected, tune in to Monday's edition of the John Murphy Show podcast, hosted on BuffaloBills.com. The show airs live from 7-9 p.m. on weeknights on Sports Radio WGR 550 in Buffalo, 950 ESPN Radio in Rochester, and is also streamed live through the Bills mobile app.

Thirty two legendary NFL alumni, one representing each team, will announce their respective team's second or third-round selection on Friday, April 26 from Radio City Music Hall. This continues a successful program that began in 2011 in which each selection in the second round is announced by a former player.

The defensive end stands ninth on the team’s all-time sack list with 32.5 in his career. Kelsay also ranks eighth in team history in forced fumbles with eight and is tied for first in team annals with a pair of career safeties.
