While there isn't too much optimism about Texas A&M's fate in their first year under a new coach and in a new conference, if the pre-season All-SEC teams are any indication, the Aggies aren't coming into the SEC with that much of a talent differential.
Six Texas A&M players made one of the top three teams, with most of that talent on the offensive side of the ball.
WR Ryan Swope and OT Luke Joeckel made the first-team; RB Christine Michael and OT Jake Matthews made the third team. RS Dustin Harris is representing the special teams while first-team OLB Sean Porter was the only defensive player who made the cut.
The bad news? The SEC West should once again be brutal this year, as LSU and Alabama tied for the most selections with 11 and Arkansas is right behind them at 10.
