3. Donovan Wilson can ball

Fortunately, Fisher’s bonehead play call at the end of the game didn’t cost A&M its seventh victory over the Razorbacks in seven tries since joining the SEC. Senior safety Donovan Wilson beautifully read Ty Storey‘s eyes and intercepted a pass down the sideline that sealed the game.

This wasn’t the only time Wilson stepped up, either. He was a monster all game and earned the highest grade from the scouting website Pro Football Focus.

When Wilson is avoiding ejections due to targeting penalties, which has now happened twice in five games, he is proving how valuable he is to the Aggie defense. He has to be better about these ejections. There is no way A&M will survive with a true freshman and a true sophomore starting in the back of the defense with the likes of Kentucky, South Carolina, Auburn, and LSU still on the schedule.

The senior is playing his way into the NFL like Justin Evans and Armani Watts before him.
