NFL Draft '07: Scouting Texas A&M

After a difficult campaign in '05 the Aggies hope to rebound. The program has had just a single player drafted earlier than the fifth round since 2004. There is a slight chance that will change next April.

After missing almost the entire season in ‘05 with a broken leg, receiver Earvin Taylor makes his return to the field. A reliable pass catcher with good size, Taylor is effective in the red zone and on third down. He has first day potential if he returns prior playing form. Senior running back Courtney Lewis is a good combination of size and speed with an element of elusiveness in his ball carrying. Lewis has excellent first step quickness and can run to daylight in the open field. Not a sturdy back, Lewis does not show an aggressive style in his running which will push him down draft boards. Keep an eye on sophomore tackle Yemi Babalola, a prospect who could go high in the NFL draft down the road.

Another highly rated underclassmen with a bright future at the next level is defensive tackle Red Bryant. Explosive on the inside, Bryant immediately gets off the snap with a quick first step and pushes the pocket up the field. He splits double team blocks and has terrific size. Bryant needs to develop a complete game yet looks like an outstanding NFL prospect. Linebacker Justin Warren is a hard-working defender on the inside who remains disciplined with assignments. Possessing only average playing speed, Warren struggles to stay with opponents in coverage.
