Auburn football: Incoming defensive backs address depth concerns in 'thin' secondary

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn’s secondary will look vastly different this fall. Gone is Chris Davis, the hero of the Iron Bowl. What’s more, he was the Tigers’ second-leading tackler (74) and led the team in pass breakups (15). Gone too is safety Ryan Smith, whose 68 tackles were good enough for third-most on the team. Fellow safety Ryan White, an able-bodied backup who appeared in all 14 games, also moved on.
