To make the College Football Playoff, Texas A&M
will probably need to go -- at worst -- 3-1 against the following four opponents: South Carolina
. That’s a big ask for a team that will have a first-year starter at quarterback (sophomore Kenny Hill
or freshman Kyle Allen
) and a defense that was one of the SEC’s worst in 2013. So, why do the Aggies have a chance? Because they’ve got a deep backfield running behind another likely top-10 NFL draft pick at left tackle in Cedric Ogbuehi
. They have two potential matchup nightmares in tight end Cam Clear, who can scoot despite a weight that hovers around 275, and redshirt freshman Ricky Seals-Jones
, a 6’5”, 240-pounder who arrived as a receiver but will likely get the Jimmy Graham treatment as a flexed-out tight end.
