Auburn great Ken Rice was the No. 3 overall pick in the 1961 AFL Draft but the NFL recognizes him as a No. 1 pick (probably because the two players selected before him chose to play in the NFL instead of the AFL).
 
Of Auburn's 30 first-round picks, four came in the 2005 Draft when Ronnie Brown, Carnell Williams, Carlos Rodgers and Jason Campbell were selected. Other Drafts with multiple Tigers taken in the first round included 1998 (Takeo Spikes, Victor Riley) and 1986 (Bo Jackson, Gerald Robinson).
