Top-graded Nebraska Football offensive players from loss to Maryland
The Nebraska Football team saw some offensive players stand out on Saturday. It’s interesting that two of the top four graded players by PFF were guys that didn’t have a ton of snaps. They certainly made the most of them.
It’s also interesting that offensive linemen make up half the top graded players on this list.
Luke Lindenmeyer got the most playing time he’s seen all season for the Cornhuskers and he rewarded his coaches with his best performance of the year.
He saw 28 snaps, most of those as a run blocker. He ended up with a grade of 90.8 thanks and will almost certainly get more playing time in the team’s last two games of the regular season.
The offensive lineman has returned from injury and struggled a little bit since being back. However, his performance against Maryland could be a good sign for the stretch run.
Against the Terps, Nouili earned a season-best grade of 79.7 which was highlighted by an 87.3 pass block grade.
It’s likely that Cornhuskers fans thought Bonner would figure into the offense more than he has after his Spring Game performance, but he had a big impact on Saturday. In fact, his carry for a touchdown was the Huskers’ only TD of the day.
Bonner finished with a total 77.5 grade on Saturday.
The second Nebraska Football offensive lineman on this list, Benhart has been playing pretty well in the second half of the season, Michigan State notwithstanding.
On Saturday he earned a 67.9 grade thanks in large part to his pass blocking.
