The wife and son of fallen Phoenix police officer and Arizona Cardinals fan David Glasser will help announce the Cardinals' fourth-round NFL Draft pick live from the Grand Canyon, the team announced Tuesday.

Kristen and Micah Glasser will be joined by Cardinals running back David Johnson, Cardinals Cheerleaders and team mascot Big Red on Saturday to announce the pick, which will be the first of four draft picks the Cardinals are scheduled to make on the third and final day of the 2017 draft.

David Glasser was killed in a shootout in southwest Phoenix in May 2016. He was among the Cardinals' most passionate fans.

The Cardinals will be joined at the Grand Canyon by representatives from the Arizona National Guard and National Park Service, along with kids and coaches involved in Flagstaff Primetime Athletics, to announce the Cardinals' fifth- and sixth-round picks.

The team's seventh-round pick will be announced by Cardinals season-ticket holder Chrisie Elser live from the location of the NFL Draft in Philadelphia.
