Roy Helu, Jr. enjoyed a banner year in which he became the first Cornhusker to have back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons since Calvin Jones in 1992-1993.
He gave every team a blueprint for defeating the Missouri Tigers after rushing for a single-game school-record 307 yards.
Helu, Jr. isn’t necessarily a back that can take a pounding during the course of a game, but with proper blocking, that isn’t even an issue.
He showed off his astonishing speed, quickness and vision as he turned corners with sharp cuts, often resulting in long touchdown runs.
Helu, Jr. is currently projected as a second-day draft pick by CBSSports.com.
If he shows that he can remain durable throughout postseason workouts, he may very well slip into the first few rounds.
Don't let the offseason get you down.
