Who: Kris Frost
Size: 6-2/240
Year: Senior
Position: LB
Watch List: Butkus Award

Kris Frost decided to evaluate his options at the end of last year. However, his draft grade wasn't high enough, and he decided to return. This July, Frost was one of three Auburn representatives at SEC Media Days. Along with teammates Cassanova McKinzy and Carl Lawson, Frost is on the Butkus Award Watch List, given to the nation's top linebacker.

Previous Performance

Frost was third on the team with 87 tackles, including 59 solo stops , in 2014. He was also second on the team with 10 tackles for loss and has racked up 151 career tackles.

Heading Into the Season

As a senior and one of the most experienced members of the team--offense or defense--Frost must embrace a leadership role. He and McKinzy are working directly with Muschamp, who coaches the inside linebackers. There's an excellent chance that Frost will be playing on Sundays, but a stellar senior season sure will help ensure his future.
