Auburn Tigers management believes that freshman Roc Thomas can be all-around back but the team's coordinator Rhett Lashlee admitted that the freshman's role is still unclear.

Like Thomas, redshirt freshman Peyton Barber has also managed to establish himself as a good player that Auburn would not like to replace.
