The NFL Scouting Combine will have a non-new date next week in Indianpolis, and Nebraska goes on to have the most selected players in the NFL Draft in several years. The fictitious NFL Drafts began offering diving bids in the later rounds, and one features several Husker’s selection, despite an interesting omission or two.

Estimated by PFN’s Senior Director, Cam Mellor, here is where every Husker was previously selected, along with an explanation of fit.

Cam Jurgens, No. 95 overall (third round) for the Bengals

Mellor Jurgens got off the board first to a team poorly looking to improve on their offensive style. It’ll give Nebraska fans another connection to rooting in Cincinnati. If Jurgens reaches 95th overall, it will be Husker’s first pick since Maliek Collins went 67th overall to the Dallas Cowboys in the 2016 NFL Draft.

“The trench repair continues for Cincinnati as they hold first in the center,” Mellor wrote. “Cameron Jurgens is a physically strong player who tracks him down in the running game very well. Improving passes will be key, but he has a future start written all over it.”

Cam Taylor Brett, No. 148 overall (5th round) for the Bears

Cam Taylor Brett is the former Husker’s next off the board, go-to for the Chicago Bears. Taylor Brett played through a broken tooth and a quadruple injury at Senior Ball and earned respect for his strength on the edge.

“In need of some high school help, the Bears are back in the draft again,” Mellor wrote. “After picking Thomas Graham Jr. in the sixth round a year ago, they snatched Cam Taylor Brett in the fifth here. Taylor Brett is great at covering and has a knack for finding football under throws.”

Jojo Doman, No. 162 overall (5th round) against the Eagles

JoJo Domann’s unique off the board in the fifth round. Doman is interesting to NFL programming because of his nose on football and his ability to cover a variety of offensive players.

“Slightly small in size and with a unique structure to the role, Jojo Doman is essentially a linebacker who plays as a linebacker,” Mellor wrote. “The Eagles can roll it out in sub-packs and in clear passes to gain an advantage because it fills a need regardless.”

A number of Husker NFL hopefuls were left out of this phantom draft, including Austin Allen, linebackers Ben Steel and Damion Daniels, and wide receiver Samori Toure, among others.

Jurgens, Allen, Domann and Taylor-Britt will be among the Huskers participating in the NFl Combine, which begins March 1. February.
