Exactly where Domann will line up on the field isn’t always obvious. That’s just fine for Nebraska as long as he’s out there. NU’s most versatile defender has his own position name — Cinco. He can come to the line as an outside linebacker or drop into coverage as a defensive back. With the Huskers starving for a pass rush most of last year, his strip-sack of Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins was perhaps the team’s most memorable defensive play. Multiple ACL surgeries shelved the Colorado Springs product for all of 2017. Injuries limited him to eight games last year, with Domann hearing from coaches that he was one play away from earning a Blackshirt. If he can stay healthy and get after the QB with any consistency, that will be the floor for him this fall.
