Texas A&M Post Spring Depth Chart: Reloading at Cornerback

The Aggies will once again be very strong at the cornerback position in 2022

Texas A&M had one of the top defenses in the entire country in 2021, thanks in large part to a secondary that was full of NFL talent. 

That secondary, which ranked 14th in the country against the pass, was strengthened by its young talent on the boundaries at cornerback and will see both Jaylon Jones and Tyreek Chappell return in 2022. 

The Aggies also brought in a host of young talent from the 2022 recruiting class at cornerback, with five signees heading to College Station, three of which participated in the spring

So who will see the field for the Aggies next fall?

Stick with as we break down the Aggies post spring football depth chart outlook.

Oct 16, 2021; Columbia, Missouri, USA; Missouri Tigers wide receiver Tauskie Dove (86) is tackled by Texas A&M Aggies defensive back Tyreek Chappell (7) during the first half at Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium.

Nickel 1 Deuce Harmon

Harmon was behind O’Neal on the depth chart last season at safety. But Harmon (5-foot-10, 200 pounds) is three inches shorter than O’Neal, and that makes him a better fit at the nickel position, assuming the Aggies flip Johnson out of this role. Harmon played in all 12 games and finished with 19 tackles.

The Nick Saban vs. Jimbo Fisher saga is just getting started, but people are already beginning to take sides

He also had an interception and 1.5 tackles for loss. He has the tools and the opportunity to make a big jump in 2022, whether it’s replacing O’Neal at safety or Johnson at nickel.

Nickel 2 Josh Moten

Moten has redshirted in 2020 and missed all of 2021 with an injury. Durkin’s arrival makes it unclear where Moten might fit into the scheme. 

Previously, he had been viewed as a nickel. He will certainly be given the chance to compete for something in the spring. It could be safety. It could be at nickel.
