Tuesday was an uneasy day for many football players jostling for a spot on an NFL roster, and that includes several familiar faces.
Broc Bando, Trent Hixson and Travis Vokolek are sixth-year seniors that are defying Father Time in their Husker tenures. They returned to reset Nebraska's losing record and bolster their résumés.
Toure's phone was starting to buzz with undrafted free agent options. Then, with six picks to go, Green Bay called his name.
After he was projected as a mid-round prospect leading up this weekend, JoJo Domann did not hear his name called in the NFL Draft.
Here’s a look at a few of the Huskers’ top draft prospects and where they’re ranked according to various outlets and recent mock drafts.
Nebraska had the Big Ten tight end of the year last season in Austin Allen. But Husker fans may see the position become even more prominent in 2022.
Neither Toure nor Williams received an invitation to the NFL Combine. But they made the most of what could turn out to be a life-changing day.
As the pieces started to shuffle within the program, tight end Travis Vokolek checked in on his position coach's status before making a decision on his future.
Says new Husker assistant Mickey Joseph of wideout Zavier Betts: "Zavier, you know, was an immature kid when I first got here. But now, he's grown up. He's starting to ask questions. He's starting to understand why he's here at Nebraska."
The list, perhaps not surprisingly, tilts toward Erik Chinander’s defense as several positions on offense head into spring ball still in flux.
NU has seen a lot of personnel change, but it’s hardly alone — and all it takes is a look through the 2022 schedule to see why.
Two more Huskers join the group at the NFL Combine, which typically includes around 300 of the top professional prospects in the country.
New Nebraska offensive coordinator Mark Whipple’s recent comments may help "Run The Ball Guy" in the Husker fan base sleep better at night. "The Pittsburgh Steelers is always going to be in my blood," he says.
Austin Allen's big season led to him being named Big Ten TE of the year, and Sean Beckton being named Journal Star's Husker assistant of the year.
Ohio State QB C.J. Stroud, Michigan State RB Kenneth Walker and Michigan DE Aidan Hutchinson earned top league honors.
Those with knowledge of Cam Jurgens' situation say recent projections suggest he could be drafted in the middle rounds — the third, fourth or fifth.
Aurora native Austin Allen becomes Nebraska's first all-conference tight end since Matt Herian in 2003.
There is hardly any time for wound-licking. Scott Frost and the Husker program have a crucial three weeks ahead — here's a closer look.
On NU’s final five offensive possessions — three with the lead, one tied and one trailing — the home team managed just a net of 8 yards on 10 carries.
Time to level up. Parker Gabriel takes a closer look at how the Huskers and Hawkeyes line up: storylines, keys, meaningful stats, predictions.
A certain local columnist is extremely interested in whether Scott Frost can right the Big Red ship, which indicates a belief it still can happen.
The Aurora native is a surefire NFL Draft pick. The only question, essentially, was where NFL personnel thought he fit into the draft picture.
Adrian Martinez’s 2021 season is over. Is his career at Nebraska finished, too? That remains an open question for the immediate future.
The Huskers have a running back position in flux as they prepare for Iowa. Also, where was Jaquez Yant on Saturday; will he play Friday?
After each crushing loss, media wonder if this Nebraska team will fold up its tent. One game remains, and we doubt we'll see any quit now.
