The Huskers’ defense will need to be solid. Cam Taylor-Britt is a key part of that.
Unfortunately for the Huskers, Nebraska’s defense has been up and down throughout Frost’s time in Lincoln, much like Nebraska’s offense. It’s never a good thing if both your offense and defense are lacking in consistency.
Luckily for Frost and the Huskers, they’ve got an experienced defensive back returning for this season. Cam Taylor-Britt has been a bright spot for the Nebraska football team and he might be exactly what Nebraska needs this season.
The Huskers had a decent pass defense in 2020, giving up 217 yards per game while allowing opponents to complete 63.1 percent of their passes and throw for 1.3 touchdowns per game. That’s not bad at all.
It’s not the greatest ever, but it does show that the Huskers are able to slow opponents down from time to time.
That said, with a guy like Taylor-Britt returning and potentially improving this coming season, that decent pass defense could become one that is certainly one to be concerned about in 2021. But, Taylor-Britt, and others, would need to improve as well.
In total, Taylor-Britt has played in 28 games throughout his career and he’s tallied 89 tackles, seven of which were for a loss. Over the past two seasons, Taylor-Britt has snagged a four interceptions, including one which he returned for a touchdown.
He’s got the ability to be really good and he’s certainly the sort of defensive back that you can build a secondary around.
