The Texas A&M football team has a similarly versatile player in defensive lineman DeMarvin Leal
I could copy and paste the entire slide about Kenyon Green and use it for DeMarvin Leal and it would practically work. These two players could not be more similar on opposite sides of the ball.
While Kenyon Green has been shifted around the offensive line based on circumstances, playing over 80 snaps at four different offensive line positions, Leal does it because he can be dangerous anywhere in the trenches.
Prior to the season, Leal was considered a preseason First-Team All-American by Walter Camp and Athlon Sports. He was hyped up based on a strong first two seasons in College Station, where he recorded 4.5 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss in his freshman and sophomore campaigns.
Many players crumble under lofty expectations — Leal did not.
On the season, the Aggie defensive lineman has already doubled his career sack total, recording 5.5 in Texas A&M’s first seven games of the year. Beyond that, Leal has recorded 8.5 tackles for loss, a new career-high.
Once again, A&M’s defensive line is one of the best in the country. Even though we’ve seen strong years out of guys like Micheal Clemons and Tyree Johnson, DeMarvin Leal will be this team’s pride and joy until he departs to the NFL.
Leal joined Kenyon Green, earning a midseason All-American honor from The Athletic.
