When CB Joe Haden was taken in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, he had tears of joy in his eyes, but he has induced his fair share of tears of sadness from opposing players ever since. Haden has 13 career interceptions in four seasons, and returned one of his two takeaways for a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals last season. Haden was a Pro Bowl corner after intercepting four passes in 2013. Jason Miller Getty Images
