    Since 2007 Auburn has started 4, 6, 5, 4, 6, 6, 5, 2, 4, and 7 whites. In 2018 Gus Malzahn and co. will slightly drop to 6 white starters.
    QB Jarrett Stidham is an all-SEC player, that has a future with the NFL!
    Auburn returns a white wr with former walk-on Will Hastings, and he'll look to build on a solid 2017 cut short by injuries. Auburn has solid TE depth with Sal Canella battling with black Jalen Harris for Auburns "Big Slot" role. To round out the skill positions is bull-dozing (Sr) FB/HB Chandler Cox, who is good for a catch or 2 per game.
    Auburns OL has solid depth but look to start the season with only a 2/5 white line.

    On Defense Auburn is bleak as usual, but (Fr) LB Josh Marsh is speedy guy who should see some snaps.
    Offense
    QB- Jarrett Stidham
    WR- Will Hastings
    TE- Sal Canella (in a postion battle)
    FB- Chandler Cox
    C- Nick Brahms
    RT- Austin Troxell

    Defense

    None

    Ones to watch in 2018: C Kaleb Kim (half asian), OT/G Bailey Sharp, OG/TE Tucker Brown, TE John Samuel Shenker, LB Josh Marsh

    I’m expecting to see SR Griffin King (5’10” 179lbs) some this season, especially while Will Hastings is out

    I hope Washington beats the stew out of ‘Awbarn’ on 9/1. ;)

    Thanks Deceptive.

    Much like Alabama this is a typical SEC down the middle caste laden operation with basically no white presence on defense.

    The biggest problem is their one bright hope WR Hastings tore his ACL in spring practice and his status is up in the air. The latest I heard is he might show up at the half way mark of the season. If he misses the whole season would he apply for another year? Too bad. Hastings is a nifty player with speed and a welcome sight in this conference.

    The QB Stidham is on the NFL radar and TE Canella has some talent.

    Like Alabama with Bolden, they have brought in a stud recruit in LB Josh Marsh. The sooner these young players see the field the better.

    Unless Hastings gets out there quickly this is another team that is just too damn caste oriented to get excited about.
