The Texas A&M Football team is a program that almost always sends a handful of players to the NFL. The trend would continue this year. After the Aggies’ best season in nearly a century, they gained some extra attention in this year’s draft.

The Aggies’ finished 9-1 in a shortened season, capped off by an Orange Bowl victory over a top-15 North Carolina team. They wouldn’t have a chance to play in the SEC Championship Game but will look to make a push in that direction in 2021.

But their strong season was good enough to keep the program well represented in the NFL draft, allowing teams a chance to pick up some elite college football players.

Where was each Texas A&M Football player taken in the draft?

The Aggies had four players drafted, each in the fourth round or earlier in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The team saw both offensive and defensive players drafted, with the most common position group being the offensive line. The Aggies’ offensive line was among the best in the country last season, with one player being drafted and three more being picked up by teams after the draft.

This year, Kellen Mond was the first player to be drafted. He would be taken early in the third round before a trio of Aggies were taken in the fourth round, two to the same team.

He would be followed up by Bobby Brown III, Dan Moore Jr., and Buddy Johnson, all of whom went in the fourth round.

But were these good picks? Today, I’ll grade each Aggie’s selection into the league.
