The Texas A&M Football team is in a unique place as they approach the 2021 season. The team has stayed relatively intact but loses some key pieces.
After a 4th-ranked finish in 2020 though, confidence will be high in College Station leading up to the coming season. Pair that with the fact that this offseason will be, at the very least, slightly more normal than last year’s and you’ve got a team that could be dangerous.
But like many SEC teams, the Aggies will have some areas to work on before the start of the season. They’ll be missing their quarterback from last year, some offensive linemen, and a key linebacker.
These positions are all replaceable, but there could be some clear holes in the roster leading up to the first game of the season. Thankfully, strong recruiting can give Aggie fans confidence that their team will find a way to make these replacements.
The Texas A&M Football team may have some surprising changes positionally
But position groups can be a tricky thing — players don’t always progress exactly how you’d want them to, leading to more confusion. Hopefully, the Maroon and White game will bring more clarity. With relatively normal spring football this year, Jimbo Fisher will have more time to fill gaps left by seniors headed off to the NFL.
The 2021 team will be a mixed bag, with both familiar players leading the charge and new faces getting acquainted with their larger roles on the Texas A&M Football team.
But all of this begs the question: which position groups will be the best on this team?
