The Texas A&M Football team generally has a few players taken in each NFL Draft. Last year, the team only saw two players go, one of whom was former TAMU punter Braden Mann to the New York Jets in the 6th round.
This year may be another quiet year at the top of the draft for the school in College Station, but there are a handful of players who are projected to be taken in the later rounds of the NFL Draft.
After a season that saw the Aggies finish 4th in the AP Poll and the Coaches Poll, Texas A&M has some underrated prospects entering the draft.
Here are the 3 Aggies most likely to be taken in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Texas A&M Football Prospect: Dan Moore Jr., OT
Dan Moore Jr. was only a 3-star recruit coming out of high school. That said, he stepped onto campus and made a pretty early impact, appearing in nine games as a freshman and getting a start against the Florida Gators.
Over the next three years, he would develop into one of the best offensive linemen in the conference. He was part of an offensive line that was considered for a handful of national awards in 2020-21.
He was also part of a Senior Bowl offensive line that helped Kellen Mond earn the game MVP.
NFL Draft scouts love his ability to stay disciplined, keeping his eyes active, and always finding a guy to block. He has the size to play at the next level at over 6’5″. Negatives seem to follow the trend that he’s not particularly quick, rather, he finds success by playing smart.
He is no stranger to being underrated before jumping to the next level, so his projection may be more of a positive than we think.
Draft Projection: Round 3-6
