These two successful Texas A&M football players should have been ranked higher

Too Low: (28) Luke Joeckel, OT

If offensive tackle was a “sexier” position, Luke Joeckel would be a lock for the top spot on this list. The former Aggie offensive tackle was the best offensive lineman in college football for a two-year stretch.

Here are some of his accomplishments via Nick Villano.

"He won the Outland Trophy, was a unanimous All-American and proved himself enough to be the second pick in the NFL Draft. He was also there for Johnny Manziel’s best season."

Being the second overall pick in the NFL Draft should tell you enough about his success at the college level. You will not find a more accomplished lineman in SEC history than Joeckel, who was extremely underrated.

Disgustingly Low: (15) Johnny Manziel, QB

I have no words. How do you rationalize putting Johnny Manziel, a player who earned the nickname “Johnny Football” and became the first freshman to ever win the Heisman Trophy, at the 15th spot on this list?

Too low doesn’t even begin to cover it.

15th on an all-time list among all college football conferences might be right. When it comes to SEC players only since the year 2000, Manziel has to be considered a top-five player. The former Aggie passer put up 7,820 yards, 93 total touchdowns, and 22 interceptions in his two seasons with the Aggies.

Next. Every former Aggie selected in the USFL Draft. dark

College football would not be the same had Johnny Manziel not had a successful career in College Station. He is the most iconic college football player to ever play the game. To put him this low is simply disrespectful.
