Nebraska Build-O-Team

What positions has Nebraska recruited well over the years? What positions need a little more attention in 2016?

For those of you unfamiliar with the Build-O-Team, it is an exercise where someone tries to build a two-deep depth chart from last year's recruiting class and this year’s recruiting class. While a full team may not be constructed from one class, it has been argued that a coach should be able to build a team from two consecutive classes.

The exercise is intended to show what areas are doing well recruiting-wise and what areas could use a little more attention. It is not a depth chart for next year. It is only an exercise to show what recruiting needs may yet exist. No value judgments are made to determine where athletes fit on the depth chart, instead listing them only by incoming class.

The list has been compiled by Big Red Report member NUinNC.
