The Dallas Cowboys will allow one of the best players in franchise history to announce their third-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

It was just revealed that legendary running back Emmitt Smith will announce the Cowboys' third-round selection, which is currently the 88th pick.

Smith, an eight-time Pro Bowler and three-time Super Bowl champion, was selected in the first round of the 1990 NFL Draft.

Lately, the Cowboys have found some impact players in the third round. In 2020, the team selected defensive tackle Neville Gallimore with the 82nd pick.

Back in 2018, the Cowboys selected wide receiver Michael Gallup in the third round of the draft. He signed a five-year, $57.5 million contract with the team this offseason.

If this trend continues for the Cowboys, Smith might have the honor of announcing the next big-time player for "America's Team."

Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft begins at 7 p.m. ET on Friday.
