5. Jeremy Johnson to Duke Williams – Auburn Tigers

Duke Williams came to Auburn last year as the No. 1 ranked player in junior college and he looked the part in his debut with the Auburn Tigers last year when he torched the Arkansas Razorbacks defense for nine catches for 154 yards and one touchdown.

With Nick Marshall suspended for the first half of that game Auburn turned to sophomore Jeremy Johnson who looked like a better option than Nick Marshall who was months removed from leading the Tigers to the BCS National Championship Game. Johnson looked to Williams early and often as the two quickly developed a rapport that would have you think they’ve played together for years.

With Johnson the starter this year after Marshall graduated he should light up opposing secondaries with Williams doing the bulk of the damage, especially with Sammie Coates off to the NFL. Williams is a potential first round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and Johnson may be the top pick in the 2017 NFL Draft if he has the type of year many are expecting of the 6-5, 230-pound signal-caller.
