Auburn redshirt junior WR Sammie Coates tops Fox Sports columnist Bruce Feldman's "Freaks List."

"Asked about Coates' 40-time, Russell said they use hand times (which are often faster than electronic times) and they clocked him eight times, dropped out the highest and lowest and said he was at 4.25. Coates' vertical jump: 44 inches. He benches 405 pounds," Feldman writes. From a production standpoint, Coates posted 902 yards and seven touchdowns on 42 receptions in an offense that stresses their running game and play action passes off of it.

Auburn senior WR Jaylon Denson has resumed running routes following his left knee injury last season.

Denson tore his patellar tendon and missed the remainder of the season after emerging at the X spot. Auburn is obviously a ground focused team, but Denson could become their top target on play action passes if healthy.

Police believe alcohol was consumed by all four passengers in the car that crashed Sunday and killed former Auburn TE Philip Lutzenkirchen.

This postulation won't be confirmed until blood toxicology reports are completed in a few weeks. The car ran through a stop sign and spun out of control, flipping through a ditch. Lutzenkirchen, not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from his seat. Toomer’s Corner filled on Sunday with Auburn fans paying respects to the former tight end.

Former Auburn TE Philip Lutzenkirchen was killed in a car accident early Sunday morning.

The 23-year-old was a starter on the Tigers' championship-winning 2010 squad. "I'm deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Philip Lutzenkirchen," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said in a statement. "He was a great young man who touched the lives of everyone he knew in a positive way. On the field, Philip was a great player and competitor, but more importantly, he was a great teammate and friend off the field." Lutzenkirchen was forced to give up football due to a hip injury in 2012. His one-vehicle accident occurred at 3:05 a.m. outside of LaGrange, Ga. "My thoughts and prayers are with Philip's parents, Mike and Mary, and all of his family and friends who are grieving his passing. This is a sad day for the entire Auburn family," Malzahn said. "I find peace knowing that even though Philip was taken from us too soon, that he lived his life to the fullest, leaving a lifetime of great memories for his family and friends to cherish forever."

Auburn senior CB Jonathon Mincy was arrested and charged on Friday with second-degree marijuana possession.

Mincy was a passenger in the car in question which was pulled over by cops. "It was a routine stop on 431 near Great Southern Wood in Abbeville of a car doing 92 in a 65," Henry County Sheriff William Maddox said. "The officer went to the car and smelled marijuana. There were two males and two females in the car and one of the males had shake all over his shirt sitting in the car in the back and there was a bag of marijuana near him. That person happened to be Jonathon Mincy of the Auburn football team." Mincy, a three-year starter, was named in May to the Lott IMPACT Trophy Watch List, which honors the defender who makes the biggest impact on and off the football field.

Auburn DE Carl Lawson's father said it's "not in the thought process" for his son to miss the 2014 season after undergoing surgery this offseason to repair damage in his left knee.

"He definitely wants to play this year and everybody wants to get a chance to right the wrong from that 13 seconds (against Florida State in the BCS National Championship), so I think the thing is he wants to be out there contributing and trying to help Auburn win a national title," Lawson, Sr. said. Some believe Lawson could be better than former All-American defensive end Dee Ford, but there are still questions surrounding his mending knee. "When he’s ready, he’ll be out there," said Lawson, Sr. "I’ve got full confidence in the staff to make sure he’s not only ready but he’s prepared. We’ve got a great team and we’ve got a good defensive line rotation. We’re in good shape." Defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson said there is no timetable for Lawson's return. "The procedure went well, and Dr. (James Andrews) said it’s been phenomenal the way he’s responded," Johnson said. "But we don’t get anything else definitive."

Former Georgia sophomore S Tray Matthews transferred to Auburn.

Matthews, booted off the Bulldogs earlier this month following a March arrest for his involvement in a failed stipend checks scam, will sit out this coming season. He started six games and collected 36 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble as a freshman in Athens. The No. 10 safety prospect in the 2013 recruiting class also considered Louisville, where former Bulldogs' S Josh Harvey-Clemons and CB Shaq Wiggins previously transferred.

ESPN's Chris Low ranks Auburn senior-to-be Nick Marshall as the top QB in the SEC.

"His athletic ability is off the charts, and even though he was erratic throwing the ball at times last season, he's improved in that area and has some big-time playmakers around him," Low writes. Miss State's Dak Prescott, Ole Miss' Bo Wallace, Missouri's Maty Mauk and Alabama's Jacob Coker round out the top five.

Former Georgia sophomore S Tray Matthews is considering Auburn and Louisville.

The Bulldogs booted Matthews off the team on Wednesday following a March arrest for his involvement in a failed scam involving stipend checks. The No. 10 S prospect in the 2013 class suffered from a nagging hamstring injury last season and played in just eight games, starting six. Matthews could join former Bulldog S Josh Harvey-Clemons and CB Shaq Wiggins with the Cardinals.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Georgia head coach Mark Richt has announced that they have released sophomore S Tray Matthews.

"We are trying to make room for guys who want to do things right," Georgia coach Mark Richt said.

In anticipation of a weekend in which it will host several elite recruits, Auburn painted the route Chris Davis took on the Jordan-Hare Stadium turf while returning Alabama's missed field goal with one second left in November.

Davis now plays for the Chargers, but his defining collegiate moment won't be forgotten anytime soon at Auburn. A picture of the field is available at the link below. "We can show the recruits this is where history was made, and you can also be a part of history too if you come here," an Auburn assistant said.

Auburn junior QB Nick Marshall runs a forty in the 4.3s.

Marshall led the Tigers to the championship game last year as a quarterback, but many believe he'll have to shift to another position in the pros. The ridiculous athlete shouldn't have a problem doing so, at least from a physical standpoint. He was a star high school basketball player who has some wild dunks on YouTube. Marshall, who player cornerback at Georgia in 2011, could be tried as a WR, CB or S in the NFL if he doesn't take a big step forward as a passer this year.

Auburn reinstated junior OLB Anthony Swain.

Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn confirmed the news Wednesday. "He'll be back, probably Monday," Malzahn said. Swain missed spring practices for unspecified, non-injury reasons.

Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said H-back Ricky Parks will not rejoin the team.

Parks was attempting to walk on after previously losing his scholarship. "He will not be back," Malzahn said. Parks lost his aid last August for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Malzahn seemed open to the idea of giving Parks another shot in the spring, but his tune changed on Tuesday without explanation. Parks is a former four-star recruit. He chose Auburn over Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Oregon, South Carolina and USC, amongst others.
