Nall Comments on OL Development

Auburn's offensive line coach discusses his rebuilt group as the Tigers head into the season opener.

Auburn, Ala.--Auburn offensive coordinator Al Borges says he has seen signs of improvement on the offensive front in recent practices and position coach Hugh Nall agrees.

"I think they have worked hard and the attitude is good," Nall says. "We will just have to see what happens when the lights go on."

The lights will go on Saturday night as the Tigers take on Kansas State of the Big 12. Kickoff set is set for 6:45 p.m. with TV coverage on ESPN.

"I will just go with the starters for a while and see how that goes," Nall says. "I have got guys I will be ready to put in at different spots, depending on what happens."

Hugh Nall talks to Leon Hart (72) and King Dunlap (left).

Nall says that tackle/guard Antwoin Daniels, tackle Andrew McCain, Leon Hart and Byron Isom are players not listed as starters who could see action vs. Kansas State.

The offensive line coach says he hopes to redshirt all of the true freshmen with the exception of starting right tackle Lee Ziemba.

Commenting on how the group has progressed in the past two weeks, Nall says, "I think they really have. I have seen a little togetherness, I have seen them hanging a little bit and can kind of tell they are starting to act like they have each other's back at some of the positions that line up next to each other. That is what you want to start seeing. When that radiates throughout the five, that is what it is all about. We are certainly not there yet, but I am seeing improvement."
