Tank Bigsby has been Auburn’s best offensive player for the past few seasons but some people believe he still isn’t getting the respect he deserves.
Pro Football Focus named Bigsby as one of their five “under-the-radar prospects” for the 2023 NFL Draft.
The former Auburn Tiger rushed for 2,903 yards and 25 touchdowns in his three seasons on the Plains. While that is good for the seventh most yards ever by an Auburn running back, Bigsby suffered from poor offensive line play throughout his career.
While this clearly impacted his stats, it did allow him to showcase his ability to make defenders miss and to break multiple tackles. Of his 970 rushing yards this season 740 of them came after contact according to PFF.
One area that Bigbsy will need to show he can make an impact in is the passing game, he averaged just 1.8 receptions per game at Auburn for 13.8 yards. He will need to become a better receiver out of the backfield if he wants to become a three-down back in the NFL.
