The NFL will have retired legends announce their former team's second round draft picks. This year, the representative reading the Cincinnati Bengals' selection will be former wide receiver, Isaac Curtis.

Last season, the honor went to the lone Bengals player in the Hall of Fame, Anthony Munoz. 

Isaac Curtis played with the Bengals his entire career, from 1973 to 1984. He retired as the franchise's all-time leading receiver. Since then, many of his marks have been eclipsed. Curtis still holds the record for most games played as a Bengals receiver. He's currently second all time in total receiving yards and third in career touchdown catches.

Curtis was the first receiver to work in Bill Walsh's "West Coast" offense while Walsh was the Bengals offensive coordinator. Curtis and quarterback Ken Anderson were a dominant tandem in the 1970s, but often operated in the shadow of division rival Pittsburgh with Terry Bradshaw, Lynn Swann, and John Stallworth.
