WDE

 

  1. KoolBell KoolBell says:

    One more Running back, plus the return of Jovon Robinson. Add one more quarterback, and two offensive linemen. Another linebacker, and two defensive linemen.
    We have 15 verbally committed, and I think we can sign 23 this year, depending on if anyone leaves the team like usual after coaching changes.

    • wilderr wilderr says:

      DL from Harris County, GA
      LB from same school as Wide Receiver ( Robinson). –Zach Cunningham
      Safety that is committed to Southern Miss–Evan Osbourne

  2. Third Generation Tiger Third Generation Tiger says:

    Receivers….and a receivers coach that can develop the talent.

    • wde1988 wde1988 says:

      LOL… not to mention that they have the natural ability to catch the ball??

      No more D’Angelo Bentons….

      WDE

      • Third Generation Tiger Third Generation Tiger says:

        One of my coaches used to say that guys who couldn’t catch had “skillet hands”.

  3. audude audude says:

    Glaring lack of Offensive Lineman… should have 2…need Defensive Tackles…more linebackers…wide receivers. Go gettem’ Gus!

    • Wombat Wombat says:

      We picked up eight(?) O-Linemen last year – obviously not an emphasis this year.

    • Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

      If we have any extra spots in the class I think you will see Gus bring in some 2 or three star OL projects that have the frame to develop given a couple of years to add bulk and size. We brought in too many last year to expect any big names to come in and expect to start within a year.

  4. Tiger on the mountain Tiger on the mountain says:

    Part of me wishes that Dee Liner would reconsider….he seems to have an attitude problem. I am really fatigued of those types of issues on an Auburn team.

  5. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    We still have no depth at linebacker….can’t imagine why we can’t find any decent linebackers it is still a serious issue with this team. We need a big mean guy in the middle who doesn’t run headlong into blocks, ala Jake.
    After the law and school got done with our secondary we could use a couple of DB’s.

    • wde1988 wde1988 says:

      :P

      Right you are COL. Right you are…

      WDE

    • KoolBell KoolBell says:

      Auburn won’t run a true middle linebacker in the new scheme. A 4-2-5 is what we will run defensively under Johnson.

      • War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

        I’m starting to think the 4-2-5 was a key reason Gus went for CEJ. For one AU hasn’t had LB depth for four years, for another it seams to me that it will be easier for a DB to have better stamina than a bigger LB, this will be key since our defense will most likely be on the field a lot due to our offensive scheme.
