Tarik Glenn, the club’s first-round pick in the 1997 draft, will have a role in this year’s draft.
Glenn, the 19th overall selection in his draft, will announce the Colts’ third-round choice on Friday, April 26, the second day of the three-day selection process.
The NFL started the program in 2011 where a former player for each team will step to the podium at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City to identify his club’s selection. Marvin Harrison and Jeff Herrod performed the duty the past two seasons.
As it stands now, Glenn will announce who Indianapolis will take with the 86th overall pick. After having the 24th pick in the draft, the Colts do not have a second round pick.
The 2013 NFL Draft will continue the three-day format introduced in 2010, with the first three rounds broadcast in primetime at 8:00 pm ET on Thursday, April 25 and 6:30 pm ET on Friday, April 26, and concluding with Rounds 4-7 on Saturday, April 27 at 12:00 pm ET.
The NFL Draft will be broadcast on NFL Network and ESPN/ESPN2. Fans also may watch the live NFL Network stream on NFL Mobile from Verizon.
