Nebraska Football 2011: Ranking the Top 10 Cornhuskers

With the most disappointing 10 win season in Nebraska history in the books, we now look forward to Nebraska's first season in the Big Ten.

Packed with quality opponents such as Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Iowa, and so on, the Huskers will need all the help they can get. Here are the ten (actually eleven) Husker players I think will have the most impact on the 2011 Nebraska football squad.

In these rankings, I took into account each player's individual ability, position, importance to the team, and level of leadership they will need to show in 2011. Those attributes make up each player's potential level of impact on the team.

Based on the current states of the offense and the defense, this list leans toward the defensive side of the ball. The Blackshirts may be forced to carry the team yet again in '11.

I welcome comments, constructive criticism and differing opinions.

On with the rankings.
