9. Carlos Rogers, CB, Washington Redskins
Rogers was the third Auburn player selected in the top-10 in 2005. He started 44 games in his four years playing for the Tigers and finished his career as the school’s leader in pass deflections. Rogers also took home the Jim Thorpe Award in his senior season, in addition to being First-Team All-SEC and an All-American.
He looked like a star in the making coming out of college but was hindered by injuries during his first few seasons. After five years in Washington, Rogers signed with the 49ers in 2011 and went to his first and only Pro Bowl that season. He had a couple of more good seasons in San Francisco and ultimately retired after a solid but unspectacular 10-year career in the NFL.
