The Texas A&M football team will begin spring practice on Saturday, March 2. There is a small group of Aggie players who will need to seize the opportunity available this spring to grab a starting position.
The team lost 12 starters from the 2012 squad that went 11-2, and it will begin the process of finding replacements for those players in two weeks. The practices during the spring will go a long way towards determining what kind of team the Ags are going to field in 2013.
The Aggies have major question marks at wide receiver, defensive line, linebacker and in the secondary. If they can adequately answer those questions, then they should be able to compete for a national title in 2013.
If not, then they will be another in a long line of teams that entered the season ranked in the top five who failed to live up to expectations. The Aggie coaches and players will attempt to answer those questions during spring practice.
This is a look at five players that Aggie fans should keep an eye on during the spring practices.
