Here's how I would rank Auburn's Top 10 players:
1. Corey Lemonier
2. Emory Blake
3. Philip Lutzenkirchen
4. Onterio McCalebb
5. Chris Davis
6. Reese Dismukes
7. Tre Mason
8. Gabe Wright
9. T'Sharvan Bell
10. Cody Parkey
Here's a link to Phillip's Top 10...

I just want to know how Steven Clark didn't make the list. Without his punts inside the 20. Our defense would have had it even worse. He has to be one of if not the best punters in the nation.
I guess it's true the punter is always the forgotten defensive player.
Yup, Clark ranks high with me. I just didn't include him in my Top 10. Another one I'm surprised I haven't seen yet and considered for my Top 10 is Jay Prosch.
I think you have to put Kiehl and Clint in the list somewhere. Not because their production is on par with Lutz or Lemonier, but because so much of Auburn's success this year depends on them.
It would certainly be a great for Auburn to see one of them in the Top 10 after the season. That's what this team needs more than anything this season. Right now, I'm not sure either would be in my top 20.
Can't we just give them all a *1*? ;-)
That last sentence is pretty telling coming from Bryan. A lot in 2012 riding on that changing with QB.

I agree Clark's punting is game changing, especially with a team that couldn't get first downs. If that happens again next year he has the leg to keep the field flipped and us in the game. He's #5 on my list.
My opinion for the whole Prosch in the top ten of Auburn players is, how can you put someone in the top ten of Auburn players when he hasn't played a single down for Auburn yet? No doubt he will be a tremendous force and help for our offense, but still without him taking a snap, i just don't see how he could be considered in the AU top ten.

I think it really depends on how you ask the question.
If you say who are Auburn's top ten entering spring going off last year I would say that there is no way that Steven Clark and Cody Parkey aren't in there. Special teams were vital last year and oth were very good at what they did. I would say that Lutz is easily the top player on the team since he was been consistently good for 3 years and will be the top tight end in the SEC next year. Others that are up there would be Emory Blake, the only receiver target last year without Adams. Dismukes is most likely our best RETURNING lineman and only got better as the season went on. Whittaker and Wright both played well to close the season and I would expect them to the be the first team next year. Eguae is a very solid player but hasn't shown a lot of growth the last year in my opinion, though I thought highly of him going into last year.
If you go by potential best players for this upcoming season then I would go with that group and add Greg Robinson and Christian Westerman for sure. Kris Frost has a high ceiling and could really show something and Cass McKenzie could be a dark horse to take a starting spot this year (he has the frame to play well now and has been working hard to be ready). In the secondary, I think Jermaine Whitehead was the most consistent freshman and could be very good and Chris Davis showed that he can play well. Of course, Erique Florence has a high ceiling at safety and we need him to play well. Focusing more on offense, Sammie Coates, Khiel Frazier and Tre Mason have a lot of potential.
