Editor's note: Auburn has a rich history of sending players to the NFL. With that in mind, beat writer Ryan Black takes a look at each former Tiger that finds himself on an NFL roster (or should be once free agency and training camps shake out). The series will begin with those who have already been in the league for more than one season and conclude with the latest crop of players to land in the NFL, either through the draft or as an undrafted free agent.

Ben Grubbs, New Orleans Saints

Position: Offensive guard

Drafted: Taken with the No. 29 overall pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2009

Career stats (through seven seasons): 106 games played (102 starts); Two-time Pro Bowler (2011 and 2013)

2014 outlook: This one is a piece of cake. Since signing with New Orleans two years ago, Grubbs has started every game (32 of 32) at left guard. That will be the case this season as well provided he stays healthy.
