The Awarded Auburn Football Players of 2016


The regular season is over, so it’s time for every publication under the sun to give us their thoughts on the best of the year. It’s also a good chance to see how wrong their preseason selections were.

When you have a pretty good year like Auburn did, you have some guys on these lists. It’s amazing how that happens. I’m sure more will roll in over the next few weeks, but for now I’ve compiled all that I’ve been able to find. 10 publications so far.
