The 2016 NFL Draft is right around the corner, and that means colleges are holding their respective Pro Days. Auburn is having its today, and New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is in attendance.

Auburn doesn’t have a lot of players in this year’s draft class, with running back Peyton Barber and cornerback Jonathan Jones being the names sticking out. Former wide receiver D’haquille “Duke” Williams is also in this year’s draft class.
And while none of those three and any other former Tigers in this year’s draft class may be first round picks, keep in mind that Belichick has managed to turn late round picks into excellent players. Quarterback Tom Brady was a sixth-round pick, running back Dion Lewis was a fifth-round pick and Julian Edelman was almost Mr. Irrelevant.
That said, if any of Auburn’s players in this year’s draft class are picked by New England, odds are greater than none that Belichick will find a way to get the best out of them.
