Bodda Getta Daily Brew 4/24: Big Dog, Auburn + the NFL Draft

Nehemia Pritchett is featured in "The Next Pick" series as the NFL Draft approaches

Good Morning, Auburn Family. Hopefully, you’ve been following “The Next Pick” series on, in which Auburn alums are given an analysis and grade as they approach the NFL draft later in the week.

Next up is Nehemiah Pritchett, who turned some heads at the NFL Combine this year when he recorded a 4.36 in the 40-yard dash—the fifth-fastest time among cornerbacks and the eighth-fastest time among all players at the event. 

"They will be getting a dog, for sure," Pritchett said. "I had a lot of coaches here at Auburn, so I think I can adapt to any type of coaching and any type of team."

📈 Head here to find out Pritchett’s draft analysis and grade. 🏈
