The Texas A&M football team had a disappointing 8-4 season — it was the third time in Jimbo Fisher’s four years that the Aggie head coach had failed to reach nine wins. In 2022, double-digit wins will be goal number one for this team.
But regardless of the outcome in 2021, one thing was undeniable — Texas A&M had one of the most talented rosters in the country. This was evident in a matchup against Alabama that saw the Aggies take home a win. Most teams are severely overmatched against the Tide.
Because of this, up to nine Texas A&M football players are being projected in mock drafts to be selected in the 2022 NFL Draft. For the sake of this article, I’ll be looking at the placement of major Aggie NFL Draft prospects in mock drafts from the NFL, CBS Sports, and Sports Illustrated.
Where Texas A&M football’s main draft prospects are landing in major mock drafts
Kenyon Green: 23rd, 17th, 25th
In nearly every mock draft you’ll find, Kenyon Green is a first-round draft pick and the highest Texas A&M football player taken in 2022. Without any major injury history, Green’s combined talent and potential will almost definitely make him one of the first offensive linemen selected.
DeMarvin Leal: 76th, 73rd, 52nd
DeMarvin Leal is a first-round talent — I’ll die on that hill. The Aggie defensive lineman has always been an extremely talented player and his numbers speak for themselves. If he drops to third-round territory, he could end up being the biggest steal in the draft.
Isaiah Spiller: 103rd, 68th, 80th
Isaiah Spiller was as consistent as anybody in college football over the past few seasons. While the Aggie runningback didn’t have any jaw-dropping statistical seasons, he was reliable. Spiller accumulated at least six touchdowns and 900 yards in each of his three seasons in Aggieland.
