AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn was dressed in its Saturday best for practice Tuesday.  It was the first day in full pads and full uniforms of fall practice. 

The early work was typical: The quarterbacks basically throwing amongst themselves in the indoor facility. The early work had everybody else in there, too, except for the sturdy offensive linemen, who went out in the rain for a short time. 

Once the media left, the Tigers got down to real business. 

Interested observers
A handful of NFL scouts were in attendance. 

Way up there
Punter Steven Clark launched a bunch of punts that nearly hit the very high ceiling on the indoor facility, including one that somehow made it over inside arch but was short of the roof. Clearance? A foot? Two feet?

Next up: Trip to Jordan-Hare
Auburn is scheduled to practice Wednesday in Jordan-Hare Stadium for the first time in preseason practice. Thursday is two-a-days. Friday is the first off day of the fall. Saturday is a scrimmage back in Jordan-Hare.

But first...
