Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory joins a list of other Big Ten players on the Nagurski Watch List.

LINCOLN, Neb. - After proving to be one of the Big Ten conference's best pass rushers off the edge in year one, Nebraska junior defensive end Randy Gregory has the nation watching him in year two.

On Thursday, Gregory appeared on another watch list, this time for the Nagurski Trophy.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy is presented by the Football Writers Association of America and is given to the nation’s top defensive player. Five finalists for the award will be named on Nov. 20, and the winner will be announced at a banquet in Charlotte on Dec. 8. Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh won the award in 2009.

Gregory is one of 10 Big Ten defenders on the watch list, including fellow defensive ends Joey Bosa (Ohio State), Shilique Calhoun (Michigan State) and Frank Clark (Michigan).
