Depth chart breakdown

 
 

1. Seventeen players on the two-deep depth chart are first-year athletes with Texas A&M; of the 17, four transferred last spring from junior college while 13 are true freshman enrollees from the 2013 recruiting class.
2. While no true freshmen took over starting positions on the depth chart, one junior college transfer – Tommy Sanders – maintained his slot at outside linebacker after earning the position last spring.
3. Sophomore tailback Brandon Williams – who sat out last season due to his transfer from Oklahoma – plugged in as one of the second-team running backs despite missing a heavy majority of fall camp with a foot injury. Nicknamed “Slim” by his teammates, Williams stands out as one of the quickest players on the team, logging a 4.4 second 40-yard dash time last spring.
4. Junior free safety Clay Honeycutt launched himself into the starting position after his strong performance during fall camp, surpassing junior Floyd Raven Sr., who has been stand-in starter at safety since the spring. Raven is suspended for the opener against Rice.
5. Notable Absences: Junior wide receiver Malcome Kennedy, who has evolved into Johnny Manziel’s “bail-out” option during fall camp, and true freshman and 6-5 230-pound Ricky Seals-Jones. The depth chart included a tight end, meaning the fourth receiver spot was left out.
