Martellus Bennett
The sophomore tight end is poised to have breakthrough season, and there are no two ways about it. Since Bennett moved to football in the spring, following A&M basketball's run to the second round of the NCAA tournament, he has been a man amongst boys on the practice fields and is showing no signs of letting up as the season nears. Bennett is poised to have big, big season and will be one of the main targets in A&M's offense.
Stephen McGee
All eyes are focused on McGee as he takes the quarterback reigns from the departed Reggie McNeal. McGee showed signs last season against Oklahoma and Texas that he can run the offense, but during the off-season he has shown that he can air it out and is the leader that the entire rallies around. Make no mistake about it, this is McGee's team, and they will go as far as he leads them.
Pierre Brown
Brown has made strides to the point that it can be argued that he is the main receiver in a receiving corps that boosts Chad Schroeder, L'Tydrick Riley, Earvin Taylor and Kerry Franks. Brown will line up in the slot and can be lethal across the middle as well as deep.
