After a dismal 3-9 record in 2012, Auburn made a minimal impact on the 2013 NFL draft, with only one player making the seven-round cut—the same number the Tigers had selected in the 2012 draft.
But this year, following the Tigers' remarkable 12-2 run to the SEC title and the BCS National Championship Game, Auburn looks like it will be well represented once again in New York City's first-round extravaganza and throughout the weekend.
With a potential Top-3 pick and several campus legends making their way up the scouts' boards this spring, look for several Auburn players to hear their names called during this year's draft.

Auburn has not had five selections from one draft since 2008, and the Plains has only produced multiple first-rounders twice since 2000 (2011 and 2004).
Here is a closer look at all five of the Tigers who Miller has going in this weekend's draft.
