Editor’s Note: In the days leading to the first day of Auburn's spring football practice Tues. March 18, we'll provide a positional grouping breakdown as the Tigers enter the second spring under head coach Gus Malzahn. The nine-day series started Sunday with a look at Auburn’s quarterbacks. Monday’s Spring Breakdown will focus on special teams, where the Tigers must replace nearly everybody. Tuesday will look at receivers.

While some positions appear relatively set entering spring practice, one particular position group is going to look a lot different next season.
