NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL draft is getting a dose of Hollywood: ''Modern Family'' star and St. Louis Rams fan Ty Burrell will participate in the first round of the draft with the team.
His main duty will be to hand the team jersey to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the team's 13th pick. The league said Wednesday it's the first time a celebrity has taken part in the draft, which starts Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and runs until Saturday.
The NFL will kick off the draft with the national anthem for the first time, with a performance from a West Point cadet who will be joined onstage by military servicemen and women, their mothers, as well as alumni from the Wounded Warrior Project.
