The Texas A&M football team will be deeper than it was in 2013, but it still has some areas of questionable depth. The Aggies return 12 starters from the 2013 squad, so they will be breaking in 10 new starters when they open the season against South Carolina.
The Aggies defense was going to be rewarded for taking its lumps in 2013 while playing so many freshmen. That plan was foiled when two of the starters from 2013 in Darian Claiborn and Isaiah Golden were dismissed from the team. The expected starter at strong-side defensive end, Gavin Stansbury, decided to transfer.
This is a look at who the starters will be against South Carolina on August 28 with the information that is available right now.
