Neal was the first Alabama player selected in this year’s draft. He was also the second offensive lineman selected and came off the board one pick after the Carolina Panthers took Ikem Ekwonu of NC State.
Neal took to the podium Saturday and discussed getting to meet Saquon Barkley. He also said he’s focused and his only goal is on getting ready to help the team.
