27. Dre Kirkpatrick, Bengals: $14,984,380
Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick was a highly touted prospect when the Bengals selected him in the first round of the 2012 draft. However, his career got off to a rocky start, and his poor play resulted in just five games started over his first three seasons. But Dre has bounced back, proving he was just a late bloomer, and was rewarded by the Bengals with a 5-year, $52.5 million contract.
