In keeping with what they've done the past couple of seasons, the National Football League will be having former players announced the second-round draft choices of their former teams at the 2015 NFL Draft. The choice for the Minnesota Vikings is a player from their not-too-distant past.

Per Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, linebacker E.J. Henderson will be announcing the Vikings' selection on Friday night in Chicago.

Henderson, of course, was a second-round pick himself, as the Vikings selected him with the 40th overall selection in 2003 out of the University of Maryland. He played for the team for nine seasons, with 2011 being his final year with the team on the field. He was recently hired by the Vikings as the team's youth football director.

On the surface, announcing the Vikings' second-round pick may sound like the easiest job of Friday night for anybody. After all, in each of the last three years, the Vikings have traded their second-round selection to move back into the late part of the first round. If Rick Spielman and company should do the same thing this year, Henderson will announce the next selection the team makes.
