It’s a big weekend for NFL Draft hopefuls.

Players will be traded, new players will be introduced and major moves will be made by each of the 32 National Football League teams.

What better way to announce these big moves than to have some of the most familiar names in the game.

It was revealed earlier this week that former wide receiver Deion Branch and former defensive lineman Ty Warren will announce New England’s second and third round picks, respectively – meaning that Branch and Warren will take the stage on Friday.

Will New England draft a wide receiver early on? Will the Patriots make any major trades? Will the team look for Tom Brady’s successor in the early rounds?

We’ll find out the answers soon enough, as all the action kicks off tonight at 8pm ET from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
