Nebraska coach Mike Riley has always wanted to have 10 offensive linemen all capable of playing in a game. He never has, but said the Huskers are getting closer to a complete two-deep up front.

"I would say we're on our way to having more depth on the offensive line of guys that can play in the game," Riley said. "My goal has always been 10, but I've never been there in my life, so we're pushing that. We're looking for a real good two-deep that are all capable of going in and playing, and we're getting closer."

Riley spoke more about what it will take to protect the quarterback, from technique to scheme. He also mentioned his thoughts on what he's seen from the defense and an update on developing depth at wide receiver.
