Change has been a constant at Auburn recently. Not only is head coach Hugh Freeze in just his second year on the job but the program will have two new coordinators for the fourth-straight season. That's no way to build a culture and create continuity within a program.

The program's top four transfers all play offense. What's more, three of them are pass-catchers. But will that make a difference?

Auburn has massive questions at QB where the program didn't bring in any transfers. Payton Thorne is the likely starter after holding down that role last year. However, he was far from excellent or consistent leaving many to wonder if he has what it takes to be a difference-maker in the SEC.
