The 2022 NFL Draft will take place next week in Las Vegas, but future NFL stars won't be the only ones in attendance. WWE has revealed that WWE Superstars The Miz and Titus O'Neil will be representing their hometown teams by announcing the selections during the Draft, with O'Neil presenting for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and The Miz presenting for the Cleveland Browns. Both O'Neil and Miz couldn't be more thrilled to represent their favorite teams, and the event itself kicks off on Thursday, April 28th and runs through Saturday, April 30th on NFL Network, ABC, and ESPN.
"I'm honored to represent my Hometown NFL team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, at this year's NFL Draft. As a person who holds a great relationship with many of the players and someone who enjoys an impactful partnership with the Bucs organization serving the Tampa Bay Region through my Bullard Family Foundation, this is truly a special moment. This opportunity to announce the name of the next great contributor to our community both on and off the field is an honor that I'll never forget. It's also the BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT ever as I get to celebrate on my birthday this very special occasion with the NFL, the Bucs, the Tampa Bay community, and the player selected," said Titus O'Neil.
"Titus has been a terrific advocate and ambassador for the entire Tampa Bay region, and we are excited to have him announcing our pick during day two of this year's NFL Draft. He brings an energy and passion that will add to the viewing enjoyment for our fans as we continue building our roster for an exciting season of Buccaneers football this fall," said Brian Ford, Chief Operating Officer, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"I am thrilled to head to Las Vegas to represent my hometown Cleveland Browns at the NFL Draft. As someone who grew up a huge Browns fan, the opportunity to play a small part in the future of the franchise is a dream come true. This is going to be AWESOME," said The Miz.
"Our team has always enjoyed working with The Miz, and we are excited for him to have this opportunity to be part of the draft and celebrate the weekend with Browns fans in Las Vegas, Northeast Ohio and across the globe.
