There’s no denying the trouble Auburn has had at the quarterback position. It’s because of this trouble that the competition is wide open.

Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn has said that the top contenders are Jeremy Johnson, Sean White and JUCO transfer John Franklin III.

“They’ll have equal reps,” Malzahn said. “We’ll give them all a chance to compete.”

But many people think Johnson and White shouldn’t even be in consideration.

So is Franklin the no-brainer? Nope.

Auburn has a silent star that could rise through the ranks. And his name is Devin Adams.

Adams is a 6-foot-2, 247-pound JUCO transfer from Mississippi Delta Community College. The Mobile, Ala. native was a three-star dual-threat quarterback who didn’t get any SEC offers out of high school, but he’s got something in common with former Oregon QB and Heisman winner Marcus Mariota.

He is known for being the only quarterback to beat Jameis Winston in high school.

Adams arrived on Auburn’s campus in January, and he’s on the spring roster, but he’s been quiet so far. Will he stay quiet? Or will he step up into the competition?
