2010 Auburn Football: Early Preseason Outlook and Roster

The summer is racing at break neck speed toward the fall, and the start of the football season will soon be upon us.

Another very talented fan has allowed Auburn fans to enjoy the fruits of their labor. WarEagleSoulWest has put this very inspiring piece together for fans to enjoy.

Vegas odds makers are expecting a great year for the Auburn Tigers, trailing behind only Alabama and Florida as favorites to win the SEC in 2010. Auburn is an early favorite by most odds makers to win their first 11 games.

Respected college football prognosticator Phil Steele had this to say about Auburn: “They get four key SEC games at home and my main set of power ratings calls for an 11-1 season, with an 11-0 vs. 11-0 showdown vs. Alabama in game 12. The Tigers will top LY’s eight win total.”

It's a pretty good sign for Auburn fans when a knowledgeable analyst has the Tigers ranked 15th preseason and says an 11-0 start is possible.

The largest hole that has been identified by preseason analyst so far is at quarterback. Cameron Newton is penciled in as the tentative starter right now, and WarEagleSoulWest has put together another excellent piece that will introduce Cameron Newton to Auburn fans.

Offensive coordinator Gus Malzhan was impressed enough with Newton’s progress to recommend him as the starter to head coach Gene Chizik shortly after spring practice. He had only been on the team a few short months at the time.

If Auburn is going to fulfill expectations, it will need the Florida transfer to play well at QB. But with some good veteran talent and a strong defense, this could be a big year for the Tigers.

Here is a listing of all the players in the roster by class along with their recruiting service rankings when recruited.
