LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska edge rusher Garrett Nelson is declaring for the NFL draft instead of returning for a fifth season with the Cornhuskers under new coach Matt Rhule. Nelson made the announcement on Twitter. He’s the most productive defensive player on the 2022 team to leave since Rhule was named coach a month ago. Nelson finished the season with 65 tackles. He also had 5 1/2 sacks and nine tackles for loss. He was voted to The Associated Press All-Big Ten second team.
