NEW YORK (AP) – New Hall of Famers Andre Reed, Derrick Brooks, Aeneas Williams, Walter Jones and Claude Humphrey are among the retired players who will announce their former teams’ second-round draft picks next week.

The list announced by the league Thursday includes six other Hall of Famers: the Bears’ Mike Singletary, Giants’ Harry Carson, Packers’ James Lofton, Raiders’ Willie Brown, Dolphins’ Larry Little and Chiefs’ Curley Culp. Kansas City doesn’t have a second-round selection, so Culp will handle its third-rounder.

The Bills’ Reed, Buccaneers’ Brooks, Cardinals’ Williams, Seahawks’ Jones and Falcons’ Humphrey will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 1.

This is the fourth year the NFL has had ex-players announce their old clubs’ picks. The second and third rounds are May 9 at Radio City Music Hall.

The other players are Morten Andersen (Saints), Dennis Brown (49ers), Joey Browner (Vikings), Mark Carrier (Panthers), Kevin Carter (Rams), Kevin Dyson (Titans), London Fletcher (Redskins), Terry Hanratty (Steelers), Marvin Harrison (Colts), Michael McCrary (Ravens), Willie McGinest (Patriots), Brad Meester (Jaguars), Eric Metcalf (Browns), Gene Mingo (Broncos), Herman Moore (Lions), Dat Nguyen (Cowboys), Chad Pennington (Jets), Chester Pitts (Texans), Mike Quick (Eagles), Ken Riley (Bengals) and Jamal Williams (Chargers).
