36. Rudi Johnson

After an outstanding career at Auburn, Rudi Johnson was the 100thPick of the 2001 Draft, a selection that proved fruitful by the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Running Back saw minimal action as a rookie, and in his second year, he played more as a Kick Returner.  While those first two seasons were not a proper showcase of what Johnson could do, he would receive his opportunity in his third year.

Johnson rushed for 957 Yards in 2003 and would go to the Pro Bowl the year after with a 1,454 Yard season.  The former Auburn Tiger rushed for at least 1,300 Yards in the next two seasons, and he had an exact 12 Rushing Touchdowns annually from 2004 to 2006.

After that three-year run, Johnson's production dipped, and he was released after the 2007 Season.  As a Bengal, Johnson rushed for 5,742 Yards and 48 Touchdowns.
