Depth Chart Overview

The Cornhuskers have a wealth of options at running back in Johnson, Jaquez Yant, Anthony Grant, and Gabe Ervin Jr.

Johnson will likely lead the backfield. Last season, he led Nebraska’s running backs in carries (112), rushing yards (495), and rushing touchdowns (4). Grant, who was the top-ranked JUCO running back, should make a push for snaps.

Regardless, Johnson’s ability as a pass-catcher will keep him heavily involved in the offense. In 2021, he had 16 receptions for 197 yards. He should get the lion’s share of Nebraska’s third-down snaps.
