JoJo Domann and Cam Taylor playing multiple positions

While hearing that Robinson was impressing defenders with his speed was certainly something worth hearing about it, another interesting takeaway from the first couple of practices is the fact that JoJo Domann is taking all of his snaps right now at outside linebacker.

It’s not a huge surprise to see the 6-foot-1, 225-pounder see some time on the edge, especially after he flashed some skills as a pass rusher last season, such as when he forced a fumble with a strip sack of Dwayne Haskins.

However, it was unclear if he would be moved to outside linebacker full time or if he would challenge for a starting safety job. For now, it seems like he will be an edge rusher, which is a spot that needs more depth.

One guy that could start at safety is sophomore Cam Taylor, who registered nine tackles as a freshman. The three-star that signed with Nebraska as an athlete played safety last season and is now getting work at both corner and safety.

He is one of a few guys Frost said could play both positions and it’s possible a guy like Taylor could move inside and play the nickel role, where he could cover wide receivers while also offering run support.
