Sophomore Anthony West and Nebraska's secondary will have their hands full in trying to slow down San Jose State's wide-open passing attack on Saturday. That's just one of the several match-ups to watch as the Huskers look to improve to 2-0 with a win over the Spartans.
The Good: A long, explosive lineman who displays good flexibility and first-step quickness off the snap. Has impressive power and punch on contact and consistently uses his length to shed blocks and get after the ball. Makes a living in opponent's backfield and plays with great balance and body control for his size. Finds the ball quickly and offers a lot of versatility as a DT in a 4-3 or a DE in a 3-4. The Bad: Lacks ideal girth to play inside at the next level and will struggle holding the point of attack vs. the double team. Occasionally gets a bit high and struggles playing with consistent leverage.
