In what could be described as a critical year for Auburn coach Gus Malzahn, the Auburn Tigers begin spring practice today.

Former SEC assistant coach and regular Inside the Locker Room contributor Max Howell offered his thoughts on Auburn’s upcoming spring practice.

“The first thing they have to do is find some players on the defensive side” Howell later elaborated on positions where Auburn needs improvement. “They’ve got to find them a quarterback without a doubt, got to find some offensive lineman and they got one or two defensive players and that’s all they got.”

Auburn finished the 2015 season 7-6 with a win in the Birmingham Bowl over Memphis.
