The Auburn Tigers will have at least six players this season that will have a solid shot to finish the year as All-Americans.
The Tigers carry one of the youngest rosters in the country this season, but they also have a lot of experience hidden in the youth. The Tigers will head into the year with questions at quarterback and a few on the offensive line, but otherwise a strong roster will take the field.
Auburn carries a very talented defensive line, an experienced secondary that is poised for a strong season and two of the best kicking specialists in college football for the 2012 year. Some Tigers players have already received first team All-SEC honors—Philip Lutzenkirchen and Corey Lemonier—so their names are obvious choices for possible All-Americans as well.
Toss in an experienced senior leader at receiver and a young, promising defensive back and the lineup of possible All-Americans is complete. Here is a breakdown of the six Tigers with the best shot at the top honor this fall.
