Texas A&M beat writer Sean Lester believes freshman WR Speedy Noil was the Aggies' most impressive player during spring activities.

After enrolling early at Texas A&M, Noil "proved he was much more of a college football threat in-waiting than a soon-to-be high school graduate," Lester writes. "The Aggies will be looking for a go-to slot receiver and Noil might be the answer." Texas A&M might need a spark on offense this season, and Noil appears to be an early option.

Texas A&M true freshman Kyler Murray said he feels no pressure from being compared to former Aggies star Johnny Manziel.

"If anything, it's all cool. Johnny is Johnny and he does his thing. We do play similar and I can't deny that," Murray said. "But pressure? No, there's none of that going to A&M. Johnny left some big shoes to fill and they're going to miss him for sure and what he brought to the table." The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder is a five-star recruit currently attending Elite 11 at Nike's headquarters. Murray has lightning fast feet and a whip for an arm, which is why he's been drawing "The Next Johnny Football" label since he was winning two state championships in high school.

ESPN's KC Joyner believes Texas A&M won't miss Johnny Manziel.

His reasoning is four-fold: 1.) Only three SEC QBs who started 10 games last season are returning, putting the Aggies on an even playing field as they try to break in true freshman Kyle Allen or sophomore Kenny Hill; 2.) The running game will be better behind a great offensive line; 3.) A steadier ground game will lead to a more consistent offense, which should make up for the expected loss of big plays; 4.) Manziel went 2-5 against Alabama, Florida, Auburn and LSU, a record his successor could easily beat. "A brutal 2014 schedule that includes away games against South Carolina, and at Alabama and Auburn, as well as home contests against Missouri and LSU may make a repeat or improvement upon last year's 9-4 record difficult," Joyner concluded, hedging a bit.

Texas A&M true freshman Kyler Murray is drawing comparisons to former Aggies star Johnny Manziel, according to NFL.com.

Murray is an undersized, magician signal-caller with lightning-fast feet learning under Kevin Sumlin -- sound like anyone you know? The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder is actually far more heralded than Manziel coming out of high school, as he's a five-star recruit who won a pair of state championships. Murray will attend Elite 11 at Nike's headquarters between July 5-10.

Texas A&M's QB competition will come down to sophomore Kenny Hill and freshman Kyle Allen.

The Dallas Morning News projects Allen will win the competition, as he was the top quarterback recruit in the country last year and is a pro-style quarterback with athleticism. Despite his lack of experience with the offense, Allen could still be a favorite of Kevin Sumlin's from a sheer talent perspective.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah ranks Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi as the top senior at his position.

Iowa's Brandon Scherff ranks No. 2, with LSU's La'El Collins and FSU's Cameron Erving rounding out the top four. Ogbuehi has long been a section favorite, as he possesses legitimate top 15 talent. The Aggie is making the transition from right tackle to left tackle this offseason.

NFL.com expects true freshman Kyle Allen to beat out sophomore Kenny Hill for the right to replace Johnny Manziel as Texas A&M's starting QB.

Matt Joeckel conceded his stake in the competition before it even got heated up by transferring to TCU, a decision that turned the contest into a two-man race. Hill, a dual-threat option, had a publicized off-the-field incident involving alcohol over the winter, which didn't help his cause. The five-star recruit Allen enrolled early and "looked very good during practices," according to the website. Concluded staff writer Bryan Fischer: "Sumlin isn't afraid to make a bold move and Allen seems like a perfect fit for his offense."

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks believes Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi is a "franchise player at the next level," and ranks Ogbuehi as his No.1 rated tackle.

"More importantly, Ogbuehi is a standout performer with the size, athleticism and skill to be a franchise player at the next level. If he continues to put dominant performances on tape in 2014, it is quite possible Ogbuehi will extend the Aggies' streak of first-round offensive tackles to three," Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound senior has the size and athleticism to go along with his long arms and quick feet. With the versatility to play both right tackle and left tackle, it should add value to his draft stock moving forward. The Aggies prospect has a good shot to be a top-10 talent in next year's draft.

Texas A&M redshirt freshman WR Ricky Seals-Jones could lead the Aggies in receiving over holdover Malcome Kennedy and heralded recruit Speedy Noil, according to NFL.com.

The 6-foot-5, 225-pound Seals-Jones was a hotshot freshman wide receiver with a world of hype last summer, but he injured his knee in September, was slapped with a medical redshirt, and then was arrested in May on a charge of disorderly conduct. Those factors conspired to steal from RSJ the Mike Evans comparisons, but he hasn't lost any of his ability. Though Seals-Jones won't have Johnny Manziel throwing to him, he's a high-upside fantasy sleeper who will be an asset in SEC-only leagues.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi as his No. 1 senior tackle.

"Following the same path as recent No. 6 overall pick Jake Matthews, Ogbuehi spent his junior season at right tackle and will come back as a senior and play on the left side. The highly athletic tackle was No. 2 on my first 2015 Big Board," Kiper wrote. Ogbuehi's decision to stay in school could make him a wealthy man, if all goes well this season. Last season he received a first-round grade from the NFL draft advisory board, and it's possible he could be a top-10 selection in the 2015 draft. The last two Aggies to play the position went in the top 10, which is somewhere Ogbuehi hopes to be selected.
Jun 13 - 6:42 PM

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes that senior T Cedric Ogbuehi has a "very high ceiling."

"A&M OT Cedric Ogbuehi has outstanding foot quickness, bends easy and recovers smoothly. Needs to get a little stronger but very high ceiling," Jeremiah Tweeted. The Aggies prospect will shift from right tackle to left tackle this year to replace Jake Matthews. There is a good chance if Ogbuehi continues to improve and avoids injury, he could go in the top half of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Jun 8 - 7:43 AM

NFL scouts disagreed with the NFL scouting service ranking of OT Brandon Scherff as the best senior prospect; draft insider Tony Pauline says the group calls Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "much better."

Ogbuehi and Scherff are about to embark upon an eight-month competition to determine which tackle will go first in the 2015 draft. Scherff is more of a finished product and sure thing, which might be why the NFL scouting service prefers him, while Ogbuehi's prognosis has a lot of projection in it. Blessed with superb length and athleticism, Ogbuehi is shifting from right tackle to left this year.

Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin dismissed LB Darian Claiborne and DL Isaiah Golden.

The pair had been in limbo since they were arrested for separate violations in February. Both were arrested again and charged with aggravated robbery Tuesday, sealing their fates. It's unfortunate news for the Aggies, who were counting on both sophomores as defensive stalwarts in 2014. "These two individuals have failed to meet the high expectations and standards that we have for our football players and as representatives of this university," Sumlin said in a statement. "These two players have exhibited a pattern of behavior that we will not tolerate at Texas A&M."

Five star QB recruit Kyler Murray, a member of the 2015 class, committed to Texas A&M.

Murray will obviously not be in College Station until next season, but multiple scouting services ranked him as the top recruit at his position. The "dual-threat" quarterback chose the Aggies over Auburn and Oregon. Texas A&M's recruiting has definitely taken a step forward since Kevin Sumlin arrived. We know the head coach just signed a new deal, but the NFL has already started calling for his services.

Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin believes the Aggies rivalry with Texas will happen "eventually."

"Eventually I think it will happen," Sumlin said about scheduling future games with Texas. Charlie Strong already officially endorsed the rivalry's renewal in March, so perhaps fans can begin to get cautiously optimistic about the continuation of a Thanksgiving tradition. The teams have played 118 times over 117 years.
