Summer Football Photos: Linemen

Another in a series of photo pages on Auburn's summer football workouts.

Senior center Ben Nowland calls out a play for the Tigers to run at a voluntary workout for offensive linemen on the Auburn campus. Nowland is scheduled to have his head shaved on Thursday so his hair can be made into a wig for a children's cancer patient program.

Ryan Broome will enter two-a-days as the No. 1 tight tackle. The redshirt sophomore will face competition from Rich Trucks and Taylor Bourgeois and possibly several highly regarded signees.

Junior defensive tackle DeMarco McNeil makes a point to his teammates as they prepare to start a drill. McNeil, who missed spring practice while recovering from knee surgery, says he is making a strong comeback and is running full speed.

Redshirt sophomore Bret Eddins runs through a drill at the indoor football facility. The defensive end will battle Jay Ratliff for a starting job this season.

Incoming freshman defensive lineman T.J. Jackson runs a drill as DeMarco McNeil watches in the background. Jackson, from Opelika High, is expected to make a serious run at playing time this fall.
