Texas A&M football had a few juniors declare for the 2019 NFL Draft, and we assessed whether or not these Aggies made the right decision.
Jimbo Fisher just finished his first full season as the head coach of Texas A&M football, and it went about as well as anyone could have reasonably expected. There were highs and lows, but they finished the season strong with four straight wins, including one over Top 10 finisher LSU and a dominant showing in the 2018 Gator Bowl.
Given the Aggies went 0-6 against LSU under Kevin Sumlin and consistently struggled late in conference play, fans couldn’t have asked for much more. Texas A&M had the fourth hardest schedule in the country. They were the only team to play both Clemson and Alabama, who wiped the floor with their matchup in the semi finals and will meet in the Championship game for the third time in four years.
The Aggies were underdogs in all four of their losses. They absolutely should have beat Auburn, but it’s not a crime to lose a SEC game on the road.
Finishing 9-4 in the best conference in college football means you have a ton of talent. The Aggies had a few players with decisions to make this offseason. Juniors Trayveon Williams, Jace Sternberger, Erik McCoy, and Tyrel Dodson all ended up declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft this week.
It’s a big blow to the Aggies’ prospects for the 2019 season but they had to figure they were going to lose at least a couple of them.
The question is, did they make the right decision? Lets assess.
