Can the offensive line actually improve?
As Nebraska football fans can attest to, the offensive line was a huge issue last season. It struggled against the run and was one of the worst in the Big Ten in terms of allowing sacks.
The Huskers lost a couple of players due to injury that will be coming back this season and Rhule was also able to add former Arizona State offensive lineman Ben Scott.
Scott is expected to start at center for the Huskers after starting for over two years with the Sun Devils, which was a key development.
The center position is among the most important on the offensive line and while Nebraska could use another tackle or so in the transfer portal this spring, things should be better. Rhule decided to keep offensive line coach Donovan Raiola and we’ll see if that move is about more than trying to land five-star QB Dylan Raiola.
But with essentially three starting players added or returning from injury, Nebraska should be better up front on the offensive line.
