Auburn Football: 10 Best Players in Tigers' History

Three Heisman Trophy winners, three players with retired numbers, 15 national award-winners and dozens of first-team All-Americans can make it extremely challenging to pick a school's 10 best all-time players.

But that's the challenge with Auburn, a program that has some of the most individual star power of any school in college football history.

Only 10 teams have had more than a pair of Heisman winners, and Auburn can claim that—and the fact the trophy's namesake also coached there.

The following list of the 10 best players in Auburn football history was determined by individual awards, All-American selections, school records and number of titles won. 

Auburn fans, sound off on this list—and the players who just missed the cut—and create your own top 10 in the comments below.

Summer Predictions for Every Major College Football Award

When it comes to trophies, the one every college football player and coach hopes to get their hands on is the shiny gold obelisk that's given out following the national championship.

But taking home some individual hardware along the way isn't a bad consolation prize, especially when it's for an award that signifies a player or coach is the best of his kind in the country. 

Watch lists have already started popping up for some of the many individual awards that college football offers, and as the 2015 season progresses those lists will be pared down to semifinalists and finalists before winners are announced in December.

We're going to go ahead and take a stab at picking those winners now, and maybe we'll get a few right. Last year saw two players (Oregon's Marcus Mariota and Arizona's Scooby Wright) claim eight total trophies, but in the spirit of spreading the wealth we're picking someone different for every award.

Check out our predictions for the major college football awards, then give us your thoughts in the comments section.
