The Texas A&M Football team returns a lot of production on the defensive side of the ball. This is good news, as the Aggies’ defense was their best in recent memory and among the top units in the nation.

That said, even on a unit that has minimal changes, there are a couple of players who have departed to the NFL Draft. This will open the door for a couple of position battles to take place.

The offense, on the other hand, will have a lot of moving parts. That said, the spring game is the perfect showcase to see where these positions are at with a few months to go before the beginning of the 2021 football season.

Even though it’s impossible to gauge what the coaches are thinking, this is the best idea we’ll get for a while on where these players are in relation to the guys that they’re competing against.

Texas A&M Football will have a lot of young talent on display

Most importantly, this will be the first glimpse that fans get at young players within certain position battles. While the older guys have already played in multiple spring games, underclassmen could show us that they have game.

Spring games are often where position battles get more interesting from a fan’s perspective. We could go into the late-April spring game expecting a frontrunner at a certain position and leave with an entirely different outlook. That’s the beauty of spring football.

So without further ado, here are three position battles to watching during the Texas A&M spring football game.
