Tank Bigsby is special for Auburn Football


Tank Bigsby is an exceptional running back.

Auburn’s back will be a name to watch on virtually every preseason roster in the coming months leading up to the 2023 college football season.

Its numbers aren’t something that blows your mind though. Between battling a few knocks and bruises, the lack of touches throughout parts of the competition, and a below average offensive line when it comes to run blocking, analytics still like the kind of production Bigsby brings to Auburn’s offense.

PFF tweeted go out the following Saturday.

“Tank Bigsby has 57 10+ yard runs since 2020…2nd among SEC RBs”

Considering the situation he’s been put in, that’s a ridiculous number of runs over 10 yards.

It’s easy to assume the trend will continue this season even if Auburn’s offensive line remains an issue for this team. Many believe the offensive line can step forward and if they do, Bigsby could stage a special season in what many believe will be his last at Auburn before entering his name in the NFL Draft.

Bigsby led all offensive players at Auburn last year in PFF offensive ratings with an 81.8. Interestingly, Auburn’s number two running back, Jarquez Hunter, was second on the team with an 80.9 offensive rating.

Bigsby also led Auburn’s offensive players in 2020 with an 84.1 score.
