The Texas A&M football team is participating in the second half of spring practices, and players are continuing to fight for starting spots at multiple positions. Spring practice is a time for coaches to experiment with different players in different roles.
With the addition of Terry Joseph to the coaching staff, the members of the Aggies' secondary have a new lease on life and began the spring with a clean slate. There has been a lot of competition in the secondary as some of the younger players have seized this opportunity to try to impress their new coach.
The Aggies lost six starters on offense and two on defense from the 2013 squad. Some of the positions like left tackle have a clear-cut starter who has stepped in. Other positions will not be decided until well into fall practice in August.
Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff have recruited well and have re-stocked the roster with plenty of talent and depth. Now that talent has to compete to earn playing time in a process that can only improve the quality of the team.
This is a look at the position battles currently going on during the spring.
