Texas A&M Football: Breakdown the Aggies' Wide Receiver Situation

The Texas A&M Aggies, led by new head coach, Kevin Sumlin, has been hard at work sorting out the new wide receiver rotation.

The new head coach brings a new system which will air the ball out even more than 2011, when the Aggies ranked No. 16 in the nation in total passing yards. Sumlin's former team, the Houston Cougars, lead the nation in passing yards last season.

Texas A&M will have to keep the athletic SEC defenses honest with a balanced attack, but the run game will often occur out of a spread set, making the receivers a top priority during the offseason.

Jeff Fuller, the all-time leader in touchdown receptions at A&M, departed for the NFL after an impressive senior season, but was not picked in the 2012 NFL draft. 

Ryan Swope didn't make the same mistake and bought into Sumlin's new system along with teammate Uzoma Nwachukwu.

But the Aggies will need some new faces to step up and fill the remaining spots in the rotation. Especially if A&M has any hopes of competing in the brutal SEC West.

Here are the leading candidates to fill the need.
