Draft Scout Kris Frost News
01/08/15 - The final decision for a Tiger mulling an NFL Draft decision has been made. After going home to North Carolina and discussing the decision with his parents, Auburn linebacker Kris Frost has decided to return for his senior season instead of entering the NFL Draft. Frost, like linebacker mate Cassanova McKinzy, had requested an evaluation from the NFL's College Advisory Committee, and he'd been mulling the decision since the end of the Outback Bowl. "After much praying and thinking, I will be returning for my senior season," Frost tweeted Thursday morning. "I love the Auburn family and I look forward to next year! WAR EAGLE"
Frost, an aspiring pilot who is on track to graduate this summer with a degree in professional flight management, told Auburn's in-house website, AuburnTigers.com, that he made his decision at 3 a.m. after several days spent discussing the possibility with his family. "I woke up and told my dad while he was about half asleep, so I had to tell him about three times for him to really acknowledge what I was trying to say," Frost told the website. "Then I called my mom at 3 in the morning, and I texted Coach (Travis) Williams, Coach (Will) Muschamp and Coach (Gus) Malzahn. - Joel A. Erickson, AL.com
11/03/14 - Mississippi fans shifted from euphoric to concerned to stunned, dejected silence. The seventh-ranked Rebels watched their playoff hopes fade with two late fumbles near No. 4 Auburn's goal line and also lost star receiver Laquon Treadwell to a season-ending left leg injury in their 35-31 loss to No. 4 Auburn on Saturday night. "It's just a really, really sickening way to lose," Rebels coach Hugh Freeze said. Cassanova McKinzy recovered Treadwell's fumble in the end zone with 90 seconds in what amounted to the first College Football Playoff knockout game. That roller-coaster play proved to be the decisive blow. "This was a playoff game," said Auburn linebacker Kris Frost, who forced the last fumble. "But from here on in, every game is a playoff game. They just get bigger and bigger."
The Tigers (7-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference, No. 3 CFP) got a reprieve after Treadwell lost the ball at the end of a tackle-breaking catch-and-run to the end zone. It was ruled a touchdown, but the replay official determined he lost the ball before crossing the goal line. Ole Miss spokesman Kyle Campbell said Treadwell had surgery late Saturday night after breaking his fibula and dislocating his ankle. The fumble deflated the Ole Miss crowd enjoying team's best start since 1990. The Rebels (7-2, 4-2, No. 4 CFP) have lost two straight. - AP Sports
08/13/14 - Other Auburn prospects worth watching: OLB Kris Frost, RS Junior...Frost signed with Auburn as a highly touted prep but injuries and position switches have limited his production, thus far. Frost's athleticism helped him rack up 59 tackles in mostly rotational duty (one start) at middle linebacker a year ago but he never looked comfortable in this role. Moved outside in defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson's 4-2-5 scheme this season, Frost's speed and agility could help him enjoy a breakout campaign. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

07/22/12 - 2012 ALL-BREAKTHROUGH TEAM, DEFENSE: Linebacker - Kris Frost, Auburn...Initially, there was some minor debate last summer over whether Frost would be allowed to ply his blue-chip talents at wide receiver, as he seemed to prefer, or whether he would be funneled directly to a more natural position at linebacker or safety. The answer, as it turned out, was none of the above: A lingering shoulder injury kept him watching from the bench as Auburn sunk to the nether regions of the SEC rankings on both sides of the ball. That left no time for experimentation this spring, where the absence of returning starter Jonathan Evans allowed a healthy Frost to move to the top of the rotation at strongside linebacker. Once his understanding of the defense catches up with his athleticism, the competition will be moot. - Matt Hinton, CBSSports.com
