All week HuskersIllustrated.com has provided different breakdowns and analysis of the Nebraska football team heading into fall camp. Today, we've come up with our five players that need to step it up and have a big month of August when camp starts on Monday. Names like junior running back Marlon Lucky highlight today's group of players.
1. Lydon Murtha, OT, 6-7, 305, Jr.
There is no more time for excuses for junior offensive lineman Lydon Murtha. It's now or never for the former Rivals top 100 recruit out of Minneapolis. Offensive line coach Dennis Wagner has moved Murtha from left to right tackle, and Wagner feels like this should be a better fit for him in 2007. The key with Murtha is limiting mental breakdowns. When Murtha is on, he's great and everybody knows he has the potential to be a high round draft pick if he can get things figured out in 2007 and 2008.
2. Zach Potter,DE, 6-7, 280, Jr.
Junior Zach Potter's Husker career has flown by and it's hard to believe he's already in his third season. With that said, 2007 will be a crucial year for Potter to make his impact felt on the field for the departed Adam Carriker. At 6-foot-7, 280 pounds, Potter has the frame NU wants, the biggest question is can he play with a high revved motor like Carriker.
