Auburn University had four players taken in the 2014 NFL draft including two first-round picks.

The leader of the pack was 6-foot-5, 332-pound offensive tackle Greg Robinson, who was selected with the second overall pick by the St. Louis Rams. Robinson, who played just two seasons on the Plains, was Auburn's first first-round selection since 2011 when Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton went No. 1 overall to the Carolina Panthers.

Dee Ford, an undersized pass rusher, was the Tigers' second first-round pick after the Kansas City Chiefs drafted him 24th overall in the draft.

Robinson will be joined in St. Louis by running back Tre Mason, who was picked up by the Rams in the third round with the 75th overall selection.

Jay Prosch, a two-year starter at fullback for Auburn, was taken in the sixth round by the Houston Texans.

Following the draft, several former players inked free-agent deals with various teams.

Auburn's undrafted free-agent signings:

P Steven Clark, Denver Broncos
CB Ryan White, Green Bay Packers
CB Chris Davis, San Diego Chargers
S Ryan Smith, Dallas Cowboys
DE Nosa Eguae, Atlanta Falcons
K Cody Parkey, Indianapolis Colts
