The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska players you need to know heading into the 2018 season.

Khalil Davis

6-2 • 290 • junior • defensive lineman

As part of a defense that needs to put pressure on opposing offenses, Khalil Davis will be pivotal in 2018. Davis had four tackles for loss, two sacks and one forced fumble in 2017. For a defensive line that seemingly has an unlimited amount of lineups, Davis could find himself in more third-down situations than anything, jamming up the middle rather than stunting in for a sack. Regardless, Davis needs to be consistent for the defensive line to be effective in 2018.
