AU's Marks, Powers await draft word

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Sen'Derrick Marks isn't obsessing over where he'll land in the NFL draft.

The laid-back former Auburn defensive tackle figures to be the first of his college teammates selected in this weekend's draft.

Marks said whatever happens, he'll just go with it. Marks and cornerback Jerraud Powers both opted to skip their senior seasons to enter the draft.

Guard Tyronne Green is also among a number of draft hopefuls from Auburn.

Marks is projected as a potential second-round pick in mock drafts and will be Auburn's best chance for a draft choice on the first day, when the first two rounds are held.

He has held private workouts for New England, Kansas City, Indianapolis and Atlanta and also visited with Tennessee.
