 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -The NFL's career sacks leader and former Bills star defensive end Bruce Smith will announce Buffalo's first-round pick in the draft Saturday.
The league informed the Bills of the decision Friday, inviting Smith to make the announcement as part of a salute to Virginia Tech, following last week's massacre in which 32 students and faculty members were killed.
Smith played college ball at Virginia Tech, and was drafted first overall by the Bills in 1985. Others with Virginia Tech connections to take part in the draft are Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and cornerback DeAngelo Hall, and Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer.
``All of us in Hokie Nation are heartbroken,'' said Smith, who retired after the 2003 season. ``As far as the league asking me to announce the Bills' pick, I consider it to be an honor.''
The Bills have the No. 12 pick in the opening round.
Bills owner Ralph Wilson was pleased with the NFL's decision to include Smith in the draft.
``The tragedy at Virginia Tech continues to affect us all, but none more so than those who are affiliated with the school,'' Wilson said. ``Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with them.''
