The 2019 National Football League (NFL) Draft took place in May and six Auburn Tigers were fortunate enough to realize their dreams of playing at the professional level. Four Tigers were selected in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Selected in the third round of the seven-round draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, cornerback Jamel Dean was the first Auburn player off the board. As a junior last season, Dean registered 30 tackles, 9 defended passes, 2 interceptions, and 1 sack. Quarterback Jarrett Stidham, selected in the fourth round by the New England Patriots, was the second Tiger to be drafted. A transfer from Baylor, Stidham recorded 5,952 passing yards and 36 touchdowns through 27 games with Auburn over two seasons.

The other four players drafted were wide receiver Darius Slayton (New York Giants), linebacker Deshaun Davis (Cincinnati Bengals), running back Chandler Cox (Miami Dolphins), and defensive tackle Dontavius Russell (Jacksonville Jaguars). Ryan Davis, Andrew Williams, and Darrell Williams signed free agent deals with New England, Jacksonville, and New Orleans, respectively, following the draft.
