Redshirt or No Redshirt Part 3

The last round of players in the 2016 class for Nebraska. Will they redshirt or will they play this fall?

The four-star product has the size to play safety and the speed to play corner – where he will get his first shot, despite probably grading out higher as a safety. He also can play in the NICKEL and would probably be an asset on special teams. They didn’t waste Eric Lee and Avery Anderson last year, but something tells me he will play right away.

WILL PLAY

 

The late Nebraska offeree is going to be adjusting to a new position, which makes us believe he will need a year at least. With four tight ends not on a redshirt year, Engelhaupt can take a year to get bigger. But he will have to hurry. They will need him in 2017. 

REDSHIRT

 

The linebacker depth was in shambles last season with injuries piling up. A major credit goes to linebacker coach Trent Bray to piece it all together. The blessing in disguise is entering 2016, Nebraska has quite a bit of experience at the position. Nearly the entire projected two-deep has at least one start to their name – with Mohamed Barry also coming off redshirt. Simmons will be close, but ultimately he gets another year.

Similar to Collin Miller, we think Stille is headed for a redshirt year despite Nebraska’s need at defensive end. Stille already has solid size, but will add to his frame.

Raridon’s experience at the Army All-American week will benefit the senior as he redshirts his first year in Lincoln. At Valley high school in Iowa, Raridon was able to toss guys around. He won’t be able to do that in the Big Ten. He’s also on the light side at the moment. Time to hit the training table. 

REDSHIRT

He’s going to play inside and at this point there are too many underclassmen ahead of him. Better to save the incoming signee. We have mentioned it with the other offensive lineman – it’s hard to play in year one in the Big Ten in the trenches.
