NFL Draft 2019: Pat McAfee delivers hilarious speech before announcing Colts’ pick

first_imgIf his voice can handle it, NFL should let Pat McAfee announce every pick for the rest of the draft #NFLDraft #Nashville #PatMcAfee #Colts pic.twitter.com/xsIFJcfcwE— John Breech (@johnbreech) April 27, 2019McAfee then took a shot at his former team by ripping into the Colts for not asking him sooner to announce a draft pick. He retired the same year as Robert Mathis and Joe Reitz, and they both have already had the honor. He also expressed some anger that an actual animal was chosen to make the announcement before him. NFL Draft 2019: All 254 picks by team “Hello, Nashville. I’m not going to say a single word about the Tennessee Titans’ record against the Indianapolis Colts, because I was a punter and there’s no reason for me to talk about that,” McAfee said. “With that being said, we did not punt much against the Tennessee Titans so you probably have no clue who I am to begin with.”McAfee did have a point, though, because the Colts went 15-1 against the Titans while he was punting with Indianapolis. Related News “Robert Mathis announced a pick, Joe Reitz announced a pick and then an orangutan announced a fourth-round draft pick,” McAfee said. “I was replaced by a zoo animal. I was not upset about it because the orangutan was terrible at his job.”He ended his speech by offering praise toward the Colts, which he called the “hottest team” in the entire NFL.After nearly two minutes, McAfee then announced the Colts’ selection – linebacker Bobby Okereke out of Stanford. Former Colts punter Pat McAfee delivered a hilarious speech that many fans likely won’t forget at the 2019 NFL Draft before announcing Indianapolis’ third-round pick. McAfee, who retired after the 2016 season, opened up his announcement by taking a jab at the draft’s hometown Titans. last_img read more
