The Texas A&M Football team has a lot of moving parts but should hold strong confidence in at least one player on their team. That player is Isaiah Spiller, the Aggies’ leading rusher from the past two seasons.

Spiller is returning as the SEC’s second-leading rusher from a season ago, carrying a bulk of the load for this Texas A&M Football team. In 2021, he’s set to receive more rushes than he has in his career, as Kellen Mond departed for the NFL and a new offensive line will likely be more comfortable run-blocking for the first chunk of the year.

Jimbo Fisher likely has endless confidence in his soon-to-be third-year runningback. Fans have confidence in their runningback. Even the media is hopping on the Isaiah Spiller bandwagon, referring to him as a future first-round pick.

One website isn’t — at least not to the same degree.

Texas A&M Football RB Isaiah Spiller was snubbed in Saturday Down South’s 2021 SEC RB rankings

On Wednesday, Saturday Down South’s Adam Spencer put together a list of the SEC’s best runningbacks for the upcoming season. This list included notable names like Isaiah Spiller, Tank Bigsby, Kevin Harris, and others.

As an Aggie fan, you’re always expecting your guy to be on top of any list. That said, Spiller seemed like a pretty confident choice for the top spot, and if not there, the second from the top. He would get neither of those spots.

Saturday Down South ranked Spiller as the third-best runningback in the conference behind Chris Rodriguez Jr. of the Kentucky Wildcats and Tank Bigsby of the Auburn Tigers. These players are both set to be among the best backs in the league, but as of right now, there’s no reason to put them above Spiller. Today, I’ll compare each guy to the Aggies’ RB.
