Will Any Huskers Go in the 1st?

Earlier today I did a full Husker Draft Preview that goes through and projects where I believe each Husker could end up being drafted.

As for the first round, the only possibility is Cam Jurgens. While I don’t see him being selected tonight, there a shot that he could slip into the back end of the first round. What you need to watch out for is Iowa’s Tyler Linderbaum. If Linderbaum goes in the early twenties then there is a shot a team like the Bengals could take Jurgens at 31.
