Ben Watson

TE, Patriots, 2004

There have only been six first rounds with a No. 32 pick, and while Mathias Kiwanuka receives honorable mention for his impressive eight sacks and 51 tackles in 2008, Benjamin Watson is the most proven of the group. After missing most of his rookie season with an injury, he displayed talent in a limited role in 2005 and made two huge plays during the playoffs. Watson had an incredible 63-yard touchdown reception to help beat the Jags and ran down Denver's Champ Bailey, who was about to return a pick for a touchdown.
