The senior defensive lineman announced Friday morning that he plans to return in 2021 and play a sixth year for the Huskers.
The Titans finished with only 19 sacks this season — only the Bengals and Jaguars had fewer. Basham is a strong, athletic, productive pass rusher who can disrupt an offense. He had 11 sacks and 18 tackles for loss as a first-team All-ACC selection in 2019 and opened 2020 with a sack in each of his first five games. Top needs: OT, WR, Edge
Injuries and age are starting to erode what was once the Cowboys greatest strength, it's offensive line. Slater handled Chase Young as a junior while playing left tackle and didn't allow a single sack the entire season. He's versatile and talented enough to play all five offensive line positions. Slater opted out of this season due to COVID. Top needs: Edge, DB, OL

Khalil Davis is making a sizable impression in Indianapolis. And he isn't the only former Husker turning in a strong showing.
The 49ers will likely trade this pick to the highest bidder, considering they won't be on the clock again until the fifth round. If they stand pat, the Jim Thorpe Award winner (nation's top defensive back) is a steal here despite his sub-par (by his standards), injury-prone season. His first two seasons in Baton Rouge, Delpit had 134 tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, six interceptions, five sacks and 17 passes defensed. He's both a dangerous center fielder and capable blitzer. Top needs: OL, DB, WR

New head coach Ron Rivera would be giddy to land the best player/pass rusher in this draft class (Young had 16.5 sacks this season and 30.5 sacks in three years at Columbus). The Redskins will add him to a young, talented defensive line. Top needs: OL, CB, LB

Nebraska will see its share of elite players in 2019.
Nebraska outside linebackers coach Jovan Dewitt says he hears from NFL teams every day inquiring about Husker senior outside linebacker Alex Davis because of his impressive size and athleticism. Playing in the same system in back-to-back seasons for the first time at NU, Davis may be on the verge of a breakout season.
Those who didn't get a chance to watch Garrett Nelson play out west during the regular season saw in the Class B state championship game at Memorial Stadium what the Scottsbluff native can bring to the table.
