The third-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals at the 2022 NFL Draft will be announced by a gay flag football player from the Phoenix area, Outsports reported.
Joel Horton has been a member of the Phoenix Gay Flag Football League since 2013, when he moved to the area. Previously he had played in the New York Gay Flag Football League. He has participated in multiple Gay Bowls, the annual world championship for gay flag football.
However, Horton will not be announcing the name of a publicly out gay player as the Cardinals' pick, as there are none in this year's NFL Draft.
The NFL Draft will take place April 28-30 in Paradise, Nevada, which is part of the Las Vegas metro area. Interestingly, the Las Vegas Raiders recently released out gay player Carl Nassib (for financial reasons, as he had an annual base salary of $7.75 million).
