Projecting Texas A&M football's depth chart: Running Back

RB1: Le'Veon Moss
RB2 Amari Daniels OR Rueben Owens
RB3: EJ Smith

There's again some situational contingency with this prediction. EJ Smith brings an extremely high level of ability as a pass-catcher out of the backfield, something that neither of the other three guys quite have, so his value is higher in those scenarios. Similarly, Amari may work well as a change-up depending on the type of defense the Aggies are facing.

Overall, however, this is how I see this shaking out. Moss seems to be the most talented guy to me, though the potential of Owens is really intriguing. If he begins to run through contact a bit better, he could end up as the best of them all. At this moment, though, it's hard to have him above Moss.

Similarly, it was tough to have him definitively ahead of Amari Daniels. Daniels hasn't been the most consistent guy in the world, but he was the most explosive back for the Aggies in the previous season.

Smith, when it comes to pure talent, is at the bottom here. That's more of a testament to the quality of the room that Trooper Taylor has to work with here, though, and less to do with Smith's absolute value at the position.

As I'm saying, it could well come to pass that Owens supplants Moss before the beginning of the season. I wouldn't be surprised to see it. For now, though, I have Le'Veon in the pole position here.
