The Texas A&M Football team will have one of the top offenses in the nation in 2013. Whether or not the Aggies will compete for a Southeastern Conference or national championship will depend on the play of their defense.
The Aggies lost six starters from the 2012 defense but should be a deeper unit overall in 2013. The Aggies will be solid on defense as long as a few of the incoming freshmen are ready to contribute from the opening game.
The 2013 defense will be a younger unit overall but should be more flexible as a unit than the 2012 defense. Mark Snyder will have more pieces to plug into his multiple schemes than he did in 2012 when he basically went with the same 11 starters for the entire season.
The Aggies return All-Conference caliber players at every level of the defense. This is a look at the top five players on the 2013 Aggie defense.
