Yes I understand the point. In fact, there's no such column in Agile boards as the UI is different from Issue Navigator. The only way to filter assignees is to use Quick Filters as I suggested. And in Work mode, you can make use of another feature called Swimlanes to flexibly group the issues. In my opinion, Quick Filters is not optimal but quite convenient as you can easily switch among different filters.
All the best,
May I know the reason why you need such a big column in Agile boards? Is it because you'd like to view the assignee of all the issues like in Issue Navigator page where you may find how many issues a particular assignee is currently working on?
If that's the case, I think you can make use of Quick Filters. As you can notice, we have a default quick filter like Only My Issues. You can configure the board to add similar filters for various assignees and then you'll be able to filter which one is working on which issues.
Hope this is what you're looking for.
