The off-season chatter around Auburn has largely centered on the Tiger’s offense going into 2018. With the team returning a 3,000-yard passer for the first time in its history, the Tigers could take the next step in fielding an elite passing attack. With all of Jarrett Stidham’s key pass-catchers returning, big plays through the air should occur with regularity this fall.
While the focus is on returning receiving record-holder Ryan Davis, and wistful musings about the injured Eli Stove and Will Hastings, Auburn’s key deep-threat has flown under the radar.
That man is Darius Slayton.
