LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska's roster officially lists Randy Gregory as a defensive end. It might be better just to call him a playmaker.
Every week the coach of the Cornhuskers' opponent tells the media it will be crucial to keep track of Gregory. That's been no small task against a player projected to be a first-round draft pick and whose game has been compared to that of last year's No. 1 overall choice, Jadeveon Clowney.
The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Gregory has been a down lineman at left and right end, he's blitzed as a linebacker, he's lined up as a stand-up rush end on both sides, he's dropped into pass coverage.
