Auburn had four players selected in the 2017 NFL draft, an increase of one over 2016. If that pattern holds, then, the Tigers should have five players taken in the 2018 NFL draft.

RB Kamryn Pettway
The buzz: Pettway was a game-changer for Auburn in 2016. He finished fifth in the SEC in rushing with 1,224 yards but probably would have been first had he not missed three games because of injury. ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said during a conference call in December that he would have been among the top six to eight running backs in the 2017 NFL draft had he chosen to declare early.
