We don’t talk enough about what the loss of Deontai Williams did to the defensive back room. 

One ripple: Nebraska has, at safety this season, relied on guys like Eric Lee Jr. (a converted corner), Eli Sullivan (a walk-on), Cam Taylor-Britt (a converted quarterback who learned corner his first season then safety his next) and now its best cover-corner in Dicaprio Bootle. All the while, Marquel Dismuke is the other safety trying to settle in as a first-time regular starter. Lots of moving pieces.
