Texas A&M football is right around the corner, and we are getting closer to figuring out this depth chart. We have a pretty good idea of what we can expect, even at the quarterback spot, but things are still shaping out through camp battles and scrimmages.

Jimbo Fisher has kept his cards close to him for the most part in terms of naming starters, but based off what we have heard so far, everyone is healthy, and the quarterback battle is still unresolved. With the second scrimmage behind us, we should be expecting an announcement by late next week.

Texas A&M football has talent littered throughout the roster, which should stack up well against the SEC.

Despite these questions we may have about the roster, we know the players involved. I will be giving my grades for each position, which will be based on the starter(s), bench, and the young talent at the position. Since this is based around the 2022 season, the starters will be graded the heaviest and the young talent the least heavy.

Scouting Report. C-. 9. player. Pick Analysis. Grade. Tight Ends. 873

Starter: D-

Bench: C-

Young talent: A+

The tight end position is still being figured out during camp, but I’m not the most enthused about what resides at the position for 2022. The starter could very well be anyone, and I mean anyone, and that doesn’t sit well with me.

For this exercise, no matter what, the starter will more than likely be below-average in terms of SEC competition. Whether it is Max Wright, Jake Johnson, Donovan Green, or Blake Smith, each have their flaws.

It seems as if the coaching staff is leaning towards experience in the starting position. If that’s the case, it will be Wright or Smith. Each make a below-average starter or an average to below-average backup.

For the underclassmen, they are oozing with untapped potential. Johnson could be an elite receiving threat with time and Green is already showing flashes of good all-around tight end play. Landing two top-5 tight end recruits in the same class does that for your squad.
