The Texas A&M football team had a handful of players who were given preseason All-American honors before the 2021 season. Specifically, four guys were preseason AP All-Americans were Kenyon Green, Jalen Wydermyer, Isaiah Spiller, and DeMarvin Leal. Only two of these players would earn All-American honors, but all of them had strong seasons and each is projected for the first or second round of the NFL Draft.
Leading up to the 2022 season, however, the Texas A&M football team doesn’t necessarily have the same level of proven talent as they did in 2021.
That said, the Aggies might still have some names tossed around in the preseason All-American media hype. So far, two guys have made the cut.

With the presence of Kenyon Green in College Station over the past three seasons, Texas A&M football fans have been spoiled to an extent. Even throughout a 2021 season where the Aggies struggled mightily with offensive line injuries, there was good play up front.
The 2022 season doesn’t look like it’s going to stop that streak.
Both of these players have similar stories thus far in Aggieland, as each will be a sophomore in 2022. Each of these Aggies was thrust into a starting role earlier than anticipated as a true freshman as a result of injuries. Both were selected to FWAA’s 2021 Freshman All-American team for their efforts.
Foster was a four-star recruit who, if we’re being honest, should have probably received a higher rating. The 6’5″ Taylor High School alum started instantly for the Texas A&M football team, continuing to start through all 12 games.
Fatheree, on the other hand, is much taller at 6’8″ but didn’t walk into a starting role. The Aggie offensive tackle sort of lucked into it, earning early playing time after injuries started to pile up on Texas A&M’s offensive line. Clearly, he did a strong job, retaining the starting job through the entire season.
Both of these players have three more years of eligibility left — if that doesn’t scare opposing SEC teams, I’m not sure what will. They’ll look to put together another strong season for Texas A&M’s offensive line in 2022.
