NFL Draft Preview: Auburn

Posted: Updated:

Tomorrow starts the NFL Draft, but it's not likely you will hear the name of an Auburn Tiger being called out on Thursday. Auburn has had a dry spell over the past two seasons in NFL talent, and this season the Tigers might have two or three players drafted.

Defensive end Corey Lemonier will be first former Auburn player chosen. "I think he's a guy that's going to have to play outside linebacker" said Jason Caldwell from "I think you will see a team jump up in the 2nd round and try to grab him because of that speed".  

Jason Caldwell also broke down the rest of the Auburn hopefuls.  

  • Onterio McCalebb – "Because of his speed he'll get a shot". "He'll go somewhere in the later rounds".
  • Philip Lutzenkirchen – "I think it will be close with him". "I think he'll make a roster and play for a while"
  • Emory Blake – "He's another guy that when he gets his chance with a team, and I think he will have the opportunity". "I think he will have a chance to make a team".
