Preview 2019: Texas A&M. 5 Things You Need To Know, Season Prediction

3. TOP TEXAS A&M PLAYERS

Best Texas A&M Offensive Player

QB Kellen Mond, Jr. 
After being part of a rotation as a freshman, Mond stepped up into the starting role as a sophomore, completing 57% of his throws for 3,107 yards and 24 touchdowns – but six came in the seven-overtime game against LSU – with nine picks, and he ran for 474 yards and seven scores.

The 6-2, 217-pounder isn’t huge, but he bulked up a wee bit. The arm is good enough, and he’s got the recruiting corps around him to make the stats shine. Considering Jimbo Fisher quarterbacks have a terrific track record, get ready for Mond to become a bigger national name.

4. RB Jashaun Corbin, Soph.
5. OT Dan Moore, Sr.

Best Texas A&M Defensive Player

P Braden Mann, Sr. 
Okay, so it’s not quite right to put a punter among the top defensive players, but coming off one of the greatest seasons of all-time, he’s a D’s best friend.

A true weapon, the Ray Guy winner blasted away on kickoffs and averaged 51 yards per kick with 19 put inside the 20. How good was he? The No. 2 punter in America averaged 48.3 yards per kick, and only four averaged more than 46. Again, though, as historic as Mann might be, he’s a punter.

In terms of the best defensive player, it’s a fluid situation considering the stars should be coming from the recruiting class in fall camp. Until then …
