Mingo to Represent Broncos at Draft

Posted May 1, 2014

Gene Mingo will announce the Broncos' second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Once again, an NFL legend from each of the 32 franchises will take the stage at Radio City Music Hall this May.

It's the fourth year in which each selection in the second round will be announced by a former player, and this year the list includes 11 Pro Football Hall of Famers.

Gene Mingo, an original Bronco, will represent Denver in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Mingo was the first African-American placekicker in pro football history, but his contributions to the team didn't end there. He served as a running back while also returning punts.

In fact, he had the first punt return for a touchdown in AFL history, which gave the Broncos the win against the Boston Patriots in the first-ever AFL game.

That year -- the Broncos' inaugural season in 1960 -- he led the AFL in scoring.

Mingo served as an honorary captain in Week 5 of the 2009 season -- the Broncos' 50th anniversary -- when the team donned its original yellow-and-brown uniforms.

"This jersey, those brown pants, those gold-and-brown striped socks, you could talk about us all you want," Mingo said at the time. "But I guarantee you a lot of those teams in the early years, when we stepped on the field, did not like playing the Broncos. It was a war out there."

Mingo is part of a group of players announcing the draft picks that have nearly 20 Super Bowl championships and 150 Pro Bowl appearances between them.
