The Nebraska football team has an impressive track record in the NFL Draft, having players selected at the top of the draft in some years, and having a multitude of players drafted throughout the entire draft in others. 

Nebraska’s had at least one player drafted every year since 1963.

However, there are some former Huskers who were overlooked during the draft process and were either taken too low or not drafted at all. Once given the opportunity, these players performed above their draft grade and made an impact for their team. 

The current Nebraska players who have a chance at hearing their name called in the NFL Draft this weekend — Stanley Morgan, Devine Ozigbo, Luke Gifford and Tanner Farmer — fit the bill of players who could outperform where they are taken.

Here are 13 former Huskers who outperformed where they were taken in their respective NFL Drafts. In some cases, these players went undrafted and still made their mark in the league.
