The Texas A&M Football team loses a handful of talent on the offensive end but brings back almost all of their production defensively from a year ago. The only key losses on that side of the ball are Bobby Brown III and Buddy Johnson, both of whom are leaving for the NFL Draft.
As a result, this team will likely see more production from upperclassman than they have in the past few years. Even though the offensive line and quarterback will be young, a bulk of this team will have a lot of experience.
But which upperclassmen will stand out in 2021?
Texas A&M Football’s Jalen Wydermyer will represent offensive upperclassmen
I’m not really even sure if he’s technically considered an upperclassman due to the NCAA granting all players an extra year of eligibility, but this is as close as the Aggies are going to get on the offensive end.
Jalen Wydermyer has been an extremely reliable tight end for the Texas A&M Football team. He’s a strong blocker and an even better receiver. In 2020, he was the team’s second-leading receiver and was tied for most touchdown receptions on the team.
His numbers improved from year to year, even with fewer games played, so expect a huge jump forward for Wydermyer in his first season as an upperclassman on this Aggies team.
He’ll likely be one of the new quarterback’s favorite options during spring ball. If he can continue to improve at the same rate, he could even become a highly-touted NFL Draft prospect.
