LINCOLN — Nebraska assistant coach Rick Kaczenski said the Husker staff didn't call Brodrick Nickens over to the defensive line just because he was a 6-foot-5, 310-pounder who looked the part.
It wasn't necessarily because they saw something in his footwork or technique or motor that led them to believe he would be a good fit at defensive tackle, either.
