Chris Kelsay to announce Bills' second-round pick tonight

By Jay Skurski

Former Buffalo Bills defensive end Chris Kelsay, who retired earlier this offseason, will make the team's second-round pick in the NFL Draft tonight at Radio City Music Hall.

The NFL is having 32 notable alumni make the announcement of their former team's second- or third-round picks (for those teams without second rounders), a tradition the league started two seasons ago. Former Bills receiver Andre Reed made the announcement of Texas cornerback Aaron Williams in 2011, while Phil Hansen announced Cordy Glenn's selection in 2012.

A second-round pick out of Nebraska in 2003, Kelsay was a three-time Bills defensive captain during his 10 seasons. He became a starter in his second season, and from 2005 through 2011 started all 105 games in which he played. He recorded 32.5 sacks, ranking ninth in team history.
