When looking towards the future, it is important not to forget your past. At the 2017 NFL Draft this weekend, the Denver Broncos will let key figures in their history introduce the newest members of the franchise.
Floyd Little will announce the #Broncos' 2nd-rd pick (No. 51) and Rod Smith will announce their 3rd-rd pick (No. 82) from Philly on Friday.

A member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Floyd Little spent his entire career with the Broncos. Nicknamed “The Franchise,” he starred at running back from 1967-75, leading the NFL in rushing once, being named a first-team All-Pro once and earning a trip to the Pro Bowl on three occasions.
Like Little, Rod Smith spent his entire career with the Broncos; donning the orange and blue from 1995-2007. His 11,389 receiving yards and 68 touchdown receptions are a record for an undrafted player. In his career, Smith won two Super Bowls, was a first-team All-Pro twice and made three trips to the Pro Bowl.
