2. Ronnie Brown, RB, Miami Dolphins
Brown had a standout career at Auburn despite often having to compete for carries in a crowded backfield alongside Cadillac Williams. He twice earned Second-Team All-SEC honors, although not in consecutive years. In 2004, he helped lead the Tigers to an undefeated season.
All of that was enough to convince the Dolphins to make him the second overall pick with the hope that he and Ricky Williams would form a dynamic backfield duo. Brown was good early in his career, rushing for over 1,000 yards in his second season and going to his only Pro Bowl in 2008, his fourth season in the league. His productivity tailed off after that, although Brown did end up staying in the NFL for 11 seasons.
