T-No. 3: Texas A&M football RB Isaiah Spiller must be hearing good things about his placement in the 2022 NFL Draft

I didn’t have an overwhelming third thought when hearing this news, so I’m splitting this slide into two separate implications. Sorry, but also — deal with it.

The first of those two is that Isaiah Spiller must have heard extremely friendly feedback from NFL scouts or those who are doing research for him. The Aggie runningback technically regressed from a season ago statistically, so this was a very reasonable worry to have. Spiller’s yards per game and total touchdowns decreased from year to year.

Spiller dropped a bit after being Mel Kiper’s preseason No. 1 runningback for the 2022 NFL Draft, but he still stands in the top three.

T-No. 3: Texas A&M football fans will see a handful of new faces in the backfield

The Texas A&M football team’s backfield only featured two runningbacks for the bulk of the 2021 season. We saw a lot of Isaiah Spiller and Devon Achane, but beyond that, Aggie backs were used sparingly.

With Spiller gone, 1,000 yards of production will disappear for this football team.

Expect to get a larger dose of young guys who haven’t had much of an opportunity yet in a crowded runningback room. Soon-to-be sophomores Amari Daniels and LJ Johnson Jr. will look to capitalize on this opportunity, while incoming freshman Le’Veon Moss will try to make his mark early in College Station.
