Nick Brahms

With the majority of preseason preparations completed, it looks like the defense will go into opening night as the strength of Coach Bryan Harsin’s second Auburn team. There is also promise of success in the kicking game while the bigger questions are on the offensive side of the football.

The team’s veteran offensive line is likely to open the season without one of its most experienced players, center Nick Brahms, who is dealing with another knee issue, something that he has had to cope with going all of the way back to high school. Little-used Tate Johnson may take the field as the starter when Mercer comes to Jordan-Hare Stadium.
