LINCOLN — Stanley Jean-Baptiste is 6-foot-3, 220 pounds and talks in a low, almost furtive drawl. Josh Mitchell is 5-11, 160 and one of the team's hubs of energy.
Both are fitting like a glove as two of the Huskers' top corners. Both are trying to stave off competitors vying for their spots. And Jean-Baptiste, a converted wide receiver who didn't fully pick up the position until spring camp of 2012, is keeping a top corner job right now with several good plays.
