Projecting Texas A&M football's depth chart: Tight End

TE1: Donovan Green
TE2: Theo Mehlin Ohrstrom
TE3: Garrett Miller OR Tre Watson

Green's absence due to injury last season is something that I think ended up affecting the 2023 Texas A&M football team much more profoundly than most people expected at the time. We knew he was a stud, but I think losing that receiving threat and speed at TE really pulled down the ceiling of the Aggie offense. Jake Johnson is a great player, and was more highly-rated than Dono, but I think Green has shown more so far in his collegiate career.

Ohrstrom is maybe the most intriguing player on a team that is chock full of them. His measurables are monstrous, but he hasn't seen the field a lot over his first two years, likely due to inexperience. Coming from Sweden, he didn't have a lot of game experience when he ended up in College Station, but that speed combined with that frame doesn't lie. If he puts it all together, he could be a Brock Bowers-esque weapon for the Aggies.

Like with Smith above, this list should not be read like Watson or Miller are of a consummately lower talent level than the average TE on a Power 5 squad. Rather, this has a lot to do with just how good the guys above them are. Green, though still recovering from his own injury, will immediately be a big time contributor, and Ohrstrom's potential is captivating.

Miller will likely see the field as a blocker more often than not, but he brings receiving skills of his own. Watson is a talented pass catcher, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him break into the rotation at some point.
