As Texas A&M approaches their inaugural season with their new conference, the SEC, many fans have started attempting to form reasonable expectations for the upcoming year. With a new coach, a new QB and a whole new outlook on the sport itself, formulating "logical conjectures" on 2012's promise is much harder than it may seem at first thought.
Losing some superstar seniors in QB Ryan Tannehill, WR Jeff Fuller and K Randy Bullock last season, many believe recovering and rebuilding should be the main objective for new head coach Kevin Sumlin. I'm here to say otherwise.
The Aggies have one of the most loaded squads in the nation with some NFL-caliber talent lined up across the board. While I don't expect A&M to truly compete in the SEC West with Alabama or LSU, I do understand that the Aggies have the capacity to play with the best of them, whether it be with their own conference or another.
While I acknowledge that my presumptions and "expectations" may be a bit high, especially considering Texas A&M's new division, I have come to realize that without lofty goals comes complacency and lack of motivation. We, as fans, must expect the best from our players to get the best out of them.
Here are 10 Aggie starters who have more than enough talent and potential to reach the pros, playing their days out here with A&M in hopes of becoming college football's next big thing.
