Brown was later drafted second overall by the Miami Dolphins. In addition to appearing in the Pro Bowl, Brown has almost 5,000 yards rushing in his career.

Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers: After leading Auburn to the 2010 national championship and capturing the Heisman Trophy, Newton has taken the NFL by storm. Drafted No. 1 overall, Cam set the NFL record for rushing touchdowns in a season by a quarterback and broke Peyton Manning's rookie record for most passing yards.

Carlos Rogers, CB, San Francisco 49ers: Rogers was a leader on the undefeated Tigers squad of 2004. Rogers is the only Auburn player to win the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back. After beginning his professional career with the Washington Redskins, Rogers signed with the San Francisco 49ers and made his first Pro Bowl in 2011.
