Christine Michael On Doak Walker Watch List

With Ryan Tannehill and Jeff Fuller now in the NFL, Texas A&M will need a strong ground game to stay competitive in their first season in the SEC.

The good thing is they have one of the most highly regarded RB's in college football, as senior RB Christine Michael made the Doak Walker Award Watch List for the 2012 season. The 5'11 215 Michael rushed for 899 yards and 8 TD's on 149 carries in 2011, giving himself an impresive 6.03 yards per carry average.

The Aggies will be moving from Mike Sherman's more traditional pro-style offense to Kevin Sumlin's spread, which will change the way Michael gets his yards.

But while the spread is traditionally seen as a pass-heavy attack, it also opens up a lot of running lanes for speedy RB's like Michael. Texas A&M's offensive line, meanwhile, is one of their strongest units, which could mean a big statistical season for their star RB.
