Auburn did not have a big showing in the NFL Draft this year, but the Tigers did see more than a few former players land on NFL rosters. Now that the Tigers have settled into their new teams, which former Auburn player will have the strongest rookie season?
Auburn has two offensive linemen, two defensive players and a long snapper that are new to the league. Each player will bring a unique look to their new team, with the impacts varying greatly.
Auburn has seen a number of its players go on to the league and have great rookie seasons in recent years. One that comes to mind quickly no doubt is Cam Newton.
Others have made big impacts out of the gate as well. Guys like Carlos Rodgers, Jonathan Wilhite, Pat Lee, Karlos Dansby and Jerraud Powers are a few that had strong rookie showings. Assuming that all five of these players make permanent rosters this fall, here is my look at which former Tiger will have the best rookie season.
