Five Auburn Football players to be excited about for the 2022 season

Auburn has some studs on the 2022 roster

This year has been a year full of controversy surrounding the football program, but all of that is hopefully behind us now, and it is time to look forward to the upcoming season. 

Although the experts around college football don't like Auburn's chances of having a good season, there are some very talented football players on this roster. We all know the talent is there; it will come down to how well Coach Harsin and his staff have coached up these players in the offseason. 

There are a few players on this roster to be excited about in the upcoming football season so let's take a look at who they are.

All of these five players will have significant roles for Auburn in 2022, and I expect good seasons all around. Some of these players are veterans, and some are young, but Coach Harsin will need great production from all of these guys to show the college football world what this team is truly made of.
