Auburn is 23 days away from the start of spring training with more than a few questions remaining. Auburn has some established returning talent, but there are five Tigers that need to make huge strides during the spring session.
There are issues that the Tigers face surrounding the quarterback position, the offensive line and on the defense. Overall, the Tigers also need to find leadership.
The Tigers do return 18 starters and a wealth of backups, giving them one of the most experienced rosters in the SEC and the country. The Tigers are poised to be a sleeper from the SEC West with the development of some key players.
These five Tigers will be crucial in determining which direction the season heads this fall.
