Three Auburn players, including two on the final day, were picked up in the NFL Draft.
The news and numbers were not too surprising, though the number of selections is the lowest since the Tigers had one representative in the draft in 2013. One of Auburn’s draftees Saturday was Michigan transfer Blake Countess, who was selected in the sixth round by the Philadelphia Eagles.
