  Draft Scout by Conference

  07/25/22 - C Trent HixsonrSr/2023, Nebraska

  Well, they've bought in. So said Nebraska offensive line coach Donovan Raiola on Thursday night of the players he inherited and added for his first year at NU. On the Huskers Radio Network, Raiola repeatedly emphasized that Nebraska linemen have embraced "the technique" he brought to the program from stops at the NFL's Bears and Notre Dame. "We've got a great room of great guys who have all bought in to a little different style, and I'm lucky for that," Raiola said on "Sports Nightly." Raiola also has an unsettled depth chart. Starting tackles Teddy Prochazka and Turner Corcoran missed spring camp with injuries and have yet to practice under Raiola's tutelage. Raiola said he hopes Prochazka, recovering from knee surgery, ramps back up to full speed. Corcoran's personality, Raiola said, stands out among teammates. "I love his attitude, his energy he brings to the room every day," Raiola said. "He's really taken on that vocal role with the guys, and he's earned that. He's a good football player, and he'll keep improving."

Nebraska has a second-round NFL draft pick to replace at center, too. There, senior Trent Hixson did an "awesome job" in the spring, Raiola said, of settling into the role vacated by Cam Jurgens. "I didn't realize he was a walk-on," Raiola said of Hixson, who joined the team almost six years ago as a walk-on. "He's really done a great job taking ownership of that role and being more of a voice in that room." - Lincoln Journal Star
