The Texas A&M football team enters the 2013 season with expectations as high as they have been since 1995. The Aggies have a few holes to fill on defense and at receiver but enter fall practice with the requisite talent in place to compete for a national title.
There were five Texas A&M players selected in the 2013 NFL draft, and the Ags are going to need some of the incoming freshmen to step in immediately and plug the holes left by those departures.
Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff brought in a top-10-ranked recruiting class in 2013, according to 247Sports. They will need some of those young players to play immediately on the defensive line and at wide receiver. The Ags will also need the freshmen to add depth at linebacker and in the secondary.
The success of the 2013 season will rely heavily on how these newcomers perform.
This is a position-by-position breakdown of how the Aggie football team looks as it enters fall practice.
