Signing day pledges boost Auburn's defense, passing game

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) The Auburn Tigers appear to have given their passing game and defensive line much-needed boosts.

The Tigers landed four wide receivers, two quarterbacks and a 5-star defensive tackle with a strong finish on Wednesday. They struggled at quarterback all season but also lost two of the top three receivers from a group that already lacked consistent playmakers.

Auburn also signed four defensive backs and five defensive linemen, attempting to shore up one of the Southeastern Conference's worst defenses and a weak pass rush. The Tigers are trying to rebound from a 7-6 season that began with high expectations. The biggest coup of the day was landing defensive tackle Derrick Brown of Sugar Hill, Georgia, during the afternoon. He joins longtime defensive end commitment Marlon Davidson of Greenville, Alabama, who is rated a five-star prospect by Rivals.
