In an offense that will see many changes from the 2021 season, the Auburn Tigers will be relying on running back Tank Bigsby to be the anchor.

After leading the team in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns last season, it appears that Bigsby is poised for another great season. The folks at On3 also have high expectations for Bigsby, as they have ranked him as the no. 7 running back on their Impact 300 list. 

On3’s Nikki Chavanelle explains that the Impact 300 list ranks the best players in college football entering the 2022 season, and factors in each player’s NIL value. Here’s why On3 is high on Bigsby heading into the 2022 season:

Tank Bigsby broke 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his career last season and will likely do it again for Auburn in 2022. On top of 1,099 rushing yards, he had 10 scores and 184 yards receiving. Bigsby’s NIL value is $546,000 ahead of the 2022 season.

Bigsby is one of five SEC running backs to make the top-10. Those joining Bigsby include Chris Rodriguez of Kentucky, Devon Achane of Texas A&M, and recent transfer Jahmyr Gibbs of Alabama.
