Projected Auburn Two-Deep Offensive Depth Chart

The article features a projection of Auburn's starting lineup for the season opener as well as the top backups.

Auburn, Ala.--With the Tigers getting ready to begin game-week preparations for their season-opening football game vs. Georgia Tech, Auburn will have a new-look backfield and other changes on offense.

Although Coach Tommy Tuberville has not announced a two-deep depth chart yet and says he probably won't do that until next week, the following is a look at who could be in the starting lineup and their top backups as the Tigers take on the Yellow Jackets on Sept. 3rd.

At a variety of positions, there is still close competition going on in practice for starting and backup spots.
