College Football News Preview 2020: Top Nebraska Cornhuskers Players
Best Nebraska Cornhuskers Offensive Player
QB Adrian Martinez, Jr.
He came in with Scott Frost. He was going to take what happened under Frost at UCF to another level. He was going to blossom in his sophomore year and finally get the O going.
Instead, he got banged up, he was inconsistent, and he ended up completing just 59% of his passes for 1,956 yards and ten touchdowns with nine picks, to go along with 626 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.
Even so, the 6-2, 225-pounder still has all the talent to become special. He’s got the mobility, the leadership, and the experience now to make the program all his. With all the potential receiver talent around him, this should be when things really take off … at least, that’s what Husker fans are hoping for.

3. OT Brenden Jaimes, Sr.
4. WR Wan’Dale Robinson, Soph.
5. WR Omar Manning, Jr.
Best Nebraska Cornhuskers Defensive Player
LB JoJo Domann, Sr.
Let’s just call this a projection in a fluid situation for the honor of being Nebraska’s best defensive player.
The 6-1, 235-pound Domann is a former safety who bulked up, turned into an outside linebacker, and now has the experience and upside to be a bigger statistical star after coming up with 52 tackles with 2.5 sacks and nine tackles for loss. He’s decent in pass coverage, too, breaking up nine passes. Well past the torn ACL that cost him the 2017 season, this is when the senior should explode.

3. S Cam Taylor-Britt, Jr.
4. LB Will Honas, Sr.
5. S Marquel Dismuke, Sr.
