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

5-11, 190 • Senior • wide receiver
Woodyard has been sold as the fastest guy on the team. But that hasn’t translated into production just yet. The junior college transfer appeared in eight games last season and caught just one pass for 10 yards. Not exactly what Nebraska was looking for after Woodyard caught 36 passes for 522 yards and six touchdowns at Arizona Western Community College. But there’s plenty of opportunity for Woodyard to make an imprint in his senior year. Nebraska’s receiving corps is unproven, and dying for second and third options behind JD Spielman. Woodyard still presents an opportunity to take the top off a defense, but only if he can find his way onto the field.
