6-1, 210 • Sophomore • wide receiver
In a crowded group of receivers trying to earn playing time, Warner has a niche. Offensive coordinator Troy Walters last fall compared the son of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner to like “another coach on the field ... you just feel comfortable with him.” He knows the offense, he blocks consistently, and he doesn’t drop passes. The 20-year-old wideout caught 17 balls for 95 yards in nine games last year. While other Husker receivers perhaps possess more physical upside, his reliability grade is among the best on the team.
