NFL Draft 2012: Alge Crumpler Announcing Top Pick For Falcons

Former Atlanta Falcons tight end Alge Crumpler will announce the team's top pick in the draft this weekend at Radio Music City Hall. Since the Falcons traded away their first-round picks, they won't pick until the second round Saturday, where Crumpler, who was the team's second round pick in 2001, will announce the selection.

Crumpler is going to be one of 33 players to announce a draft pick this weekend for a team that he once played for. This is going to be the second consecutive year that the league will have retired players announce the choices by their former teams in the second round.

Last year, former Falcons linebacker Jessie Tuggle announced the Falcons' third-round pick, linebacker Akeem Dent.
