A new conference?  No problem for Nebraska who should win the Big Ten and return to a BCS bowl game in January.  Despite no definite first round picks at this point, in our opinion this is a good class of senior NFL prospects coming from NU.

2nd Jared Crick DT 94 5Sr Explosive, competitive defensive tackle that plays with good mechanics, quickness and intensity. Not overpowering and does not make enough plays on the ball. Potential three technique lineman.
2nd Alfonzo Dennard CB 15 4Sr Strong, feisty bump and run cover corner with a developing game. Only occasionally challenged by opponents and usually up to the task. Needs to polish his game yet has starting ability at the next level.
2-3 Lavonte David ILB 94 4Sr Junior college transfer that came made a major impact on the Nebraska defense upon arrival. Tough, hard-working and instinctive. Lacks great measurables and even a bit small yet a very good football player.
3rd Marcel Jones G 78 5Sr A lineman we were high on off the 2009 film, Jones struggled with injury last season yet at the top of his game is a big, athletic and dominant lineman with NFL potential.
5th Cameron Meredith DE 34 4Jr Semi-athletic defensive end that breaks down well, plays with good pad level and works hard to get to the action. Lacks classic size and does not show a great closing burst to the ball. Possesses good size as well as growth potential and someone to keep an eye on.
6th P.J. Smith S 13 3Jr Nice sized safety that’s tough against the run and displays the ability to cover the pass. Has an upside.
6-7 Jeremiah Sirles T 71 3So Young developing lineman with a lot of upside. Used on the left side and has a skill, size and body type better suited to be a strong side tackle.
7th Mike Caputo C 58 5Sr Quick, explosive center with good footwork and ability in space. Also effective blocking in motion. Possesses limited size and growth potential which will limit him but a solid zone blocking prospect.
7-FA Brandon Kinnie WR 84 4Sr Big receiver that uses his size as an advantage. Not a natural pass catcher yet offers the quarterback and imposing target.
FA Jermarcus Hardrick T 50 4Sr Large, dominant offensive lineman that was rotated in the lineup last year. Moves well for a big blocker and has a lot of upside yet needs to polish his game.
FA Austin Cassidy S 8 4Sr Tough hard-working safety with limited speed, athleticism and upside potential.
