The Texas A&M football team has a chance to have more players taken in the 2022 NFL Draft than any other school in the country. It probably won’t happen, but the possibility exists that double-digit Aggies will hear their name called this summer.

More realistically, eight players have a true chance to be drafted. And according to CBS Sports, these eight players will, in fact, be selected.

CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson put together an extremely comprehensive seven-round mock draft — something that you don’t see every day. In this one, eight Aggies were taken. Here was every Texas A&M football player selected in CBS Sports Mock Draft.

Eight Texas A&M football players were taken in CBS Sports’ Mock Draft — will this translate to real life?

Before I get too far into his, it’s important to note the redundancy of late-round NFL mock drafts, as they almost never come true. Still, it’s fun to look at and can give fans an idea of when their favorite players will be selected.

So without further ado, here are the early-round selections, according to CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson.

  • Round 1, Pick 17 (Los Angeles Chargers): Kenyon Green, OL
  • Round 3, Pick 4 (Houston Texans): Isaiah Spiller, RB
  • Round 3, Pick 9 (Indianapolis Colts): DeMarvin Leal, DL
  • Round 4, Pick 4 (Baltimore Ravens): Aaron Hansford, LB

The most notable member of this group is Kenyon Green, who is projected by most to be selected in the first round. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. What should come as a surprise is DeMarvin Leal’s drastic drop to the third round, likely due to his poor testing numbers. The drop isn’t surprising — it’s the extremity of the drop that’s surprising.

But A&M has some positive surprises in this mock draft, too.

  • Round 4, Pick 27 (LA Chargers): Jayden Peevy, DL
  • Round 4, Pick 32 (Baltimore Ravens): Micheal Clemons, DL
  • Round 7, Pick 5 (Tennessee Titans): Jalen Wydermyer, TE
  • Round 7, Pick 25 (Indianapolis Colts): Leon O’Neal Jr., S

Another Aggie falls due to poor testing numbers. This time, it’s Jalen Wydermyer, who was (at one point) considered a potential first-round pick. Unfortunately, his 5.03 40-yard dash time may doom him this year.

Thankfully, there are some positives in this group. Look at Jayden Peevy and Micheal Clemons, two older guys who sneak into the fourth round to strong football teams.

Overall, this mock draft puts A&M’s combine and pro day struggles on full display. That said, these players have been effective before, so they could end up being some of the biggest steals of the NFL Draft.
