RB REX BURKHEAD JUNIOR
Bo Pelini says this physical 5' 11", 210--pound runner—who rushed for 951 yards and seven TDs last year while sharing time with departed senior Roy Helu Jr.—could be "as good a running back as there is in the Big Ten."
DT JARED CRICK SENIOR
A two-time All--Big 12 honoree and a second-team AP All-America last year, Crick surprised some NFL scouts by returning for his senior season. His 19 career sacks rank seventh in school history, and he could make a run at Trev Alberts's school record (29½).
CB ALFONZO DENNARD SENIOR
Overshadowed the past two seasons by NFL first-round draft pick Prince Amukamara, Dennard still earned second-team All--Big 12 honors in 2010 after snatching four interceptions. As Amukamara did, Dennard will likely contend for this season's Thorpe Award.
