Auburn Football among top ten all-time leaders in passing yards

Over the years, the Auburn Tigers have had some very talented quarterbacks on the roster.

Not only were they talented, but there are many Auburn quarterbacks who played the job in different ways. There’s Cam Newton, a weird athlete who could run or throw the ball. Or Nick Marshall, who could execute the option better than any quarterback in recent memory. Then you have Jarett Stidham, a pro-style quarterback with pinpoint accuracy. These three guys played differently at quarterback, but they all made it to play for Auburn.

Different circumstances have led to some formidable Auburn quarterbacks not making it to this list. As in Newton’s case, he didn’t crack the top ten list as he only played quarterback for the Tigers for a year. May it be a very successful year as he led Auburn to a national championship.

Read on to see which former Auburn quarterbacks make the list of the top ten passing yards of all time.

October 5, 1991;  Auburn, AL, USA;  FILE PICTURE;  Auburn Tigers quarterback Stan White (11) runs with the ball against the Mississippi Rebels at Jordan Hare Stadium.

It will be interesting to see who the next great Auburn quarterback will be on this list. Could he potentially be someone on Auburn’s current roster? That remains to be seen, but Auburn has some young talent on this football team who, if all goes well, could change this top ten list. The young gunslinger Holden Geriner is someone who still has all his eligibility and all the talent in the world. If he receives the reins in his second year on the Plains, you could very well see his name on this list in the future.
