The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska players you need to know heading into the 2019 season.

6-6, 310 • Senior • offensive lineman
Gaylord is an offensive tackle in waiting. The senior has been poised to make a move into the starting five on the offensive front for some time now, but he will again be the backup for both Brenden Jaimes and Matt Farniok. Both young tackles are solidified in their starting spots. But Nebraska has struggled to keep linemen healthy the past few years, and if one goes down, Gaylord could take over on either side if needed.
