I wish this question specified early, late or not at all concerning the draft. I think he will be taken 5 round or later. Of course if he blows up during the combine then that changes everything. I just don't think as it stands now that he has enough on 2015 film to justify an early pick.

Low 4th or 5th round pick, but probably has the size and strength for the pro game now. If he'd have put in another year he could have been far more prized. Still I like his shot. GBR.

I think he is more ready than Collins for the pro game. Collins needed another year in the weight room. Valentine will be a plugger in the nfl. 3-4 nose or runs stuffing 4-3 dtackle. Collins has Pro Bowl potential, but is not ready.

Not sure he'll be happy with where he's picked but I think someone will see his potential and give him a shot.

He has shown a force to reckon with.

He'll play in the NFL, but he doesn't have the numbers to warrant being drafted.

I dont think so. I think another year with the Huskers would have prepaired him alot better for the NFL.

HE NEEDED TO STAY IN SCHOOL ANOTHER YEAR AND SHOW SOMETHING.

He didn't have a productive year he was hurt most of the time and when he was in he didn't have that much of an impact when he was one on one and he can't split the double team very well

First game is always vanilla on offense. They will try to establish the run with basic run formations.

Slightly more runs than passes... if we are smart. Or it's going to be a long year.

Oline should dominate a transfer portal depleted Northwestern front and get the practice running the ball that is needed to win in the BIG.

They will play to win. The way to win is to grind Northwestern down.

I feel we should get a somewhat comfortable lead and start grinding out 1st downs via the run game. But if Oline under-performs and forgets to show up? All bets are off.

Show off our running back talent, as they won't stop us by the end of the game.

It will likely be balanced, but slightly more runs. Whipple likes running.

Whips will probably stick to a 54/46 ratio. I know they will be seeking as much balance as possible. An early lead would help balance things back to near 50/50. Early on as they go on attack, I think it may start out close to 60/40.

It'll be pretty close to a 50/50 split, but I'll give the slight edge to the run game. From what I've read our run blocking is better than our pass blocking right now. Much like the TO days I can envision a run heavy 1st & 2nd down to avoid 3rd and longs.

There will be swing passes and screens that will act as substitutes for runs, loosen up the D and spread the defense.

I struggled with this decision. We have talent, but that hasn't been our problem recently. Execution, special teams and the O-line have been our Achille's heal (in that order). If we can improve in 2 of these areas, it should be enough to get us 7 wins.

I think our offense will score a lot more points than last year and the defense will shut more teams down on 3rd downs.

I think we may have to win one of the last four tough games to be bowl eligible.

Tough teams on the schedule, and Scott has not proven his coaching abilities as of yet.
