1. RB Tre Mason
After going 3-9 (0-8) last year, its hard to find a lot of things that went right for the Tigers. One thing that did is junior RB Tre Mason. Mason rushed for over 1,000 yards last year on an Auburn team that literally had no other playmakers on offense. If Auburn wants to get to a bowl game, better yet win a conference game, they'll have to rely on Mason to make big plays for the very, very, very in experienced Auburn offense.
2. DB Kiel Frazier
Last years starter at QB for Auburn will now make the transition to an already depleted secondary for the Tigers. How he steps up and makes an impact on this defense will affect the quality of depth on an Auburn defense that just couldn't stop anyone last year.
3. QB Nick Marshall
Marshall won out the starting job over true freshman Jeremy Johnson and Jonathan Wallace. The last time a JUCO transfer won the starting job at Auburn they won a national title. Don't expect Marshall to make that much of a difference for the Tigers, but do expect him to be a nice jolt of energy for an offense that couldn't hardly do anything right in 2012.
