2015 NFL Draft Prospects: Texas A&M

These are the school's prospects for the 2015 NFL Draft

  1. Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 305.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.20.
    Projected Round (2015): 2-3.

    1/17/15: A torn ACL in his bowl game against West Virginia was a huge blow to Ogbuehi's draft stock. He was a mid first-rounder before the injury. Sources say they feel that Ogbuehi's range will now be the middle of the second round to the top portion of the third round. They still view him as a 10-year starter at left tackle in the NFL.

    Ogbuehi has shown that he has athletic potential for the next level, but he needs to improve his strength. Ogbuehi is an extremely fast, agile blocker with great feet who needs to improve strength to sustain blocks. The senior hit a mid-season slump where he allowed six sacks in three games all from a lack of strength.

    Ogbuehi had an easy final game in his bowl matchup against West Virginia. The outing against Alabama was the third-straight game in which Ogbuehi played poorly. He gave up two sacks and multiple other pressures and hits on his quarterback to the Crimson Tide. Versus Ole Miss, Ogbuehi was beaten for one sack and gave up a critical hit on Kenny Hill that helped result in a 75-yard pick six. Against Mississippi State, Ogbuehi had a disappointing game as he allowed three sacks. Two of them were coverage sacks, but on the first of the three, Ogbuehi was beaten by some speed and strength from linebacker Bernardrick McKinney. He allowed a sack against Missouri and LSU, but was very good aside from those plays.

    Ogbuehi had an excellent start to the season against South Carolina. He was rock solid in pass protection and got movement in the ground game. While going against easy opponents, Ogbuehi looked natural with his switch to left tackle.

    8/27/14: Ogbuehi will continue to move along the Texas A&M offensive line. He had a superb 2013 season as a pass-protector. The junior opened holes in the ground game and was a very reliable blocker to negate the speed rushers of the SEC. With Jake Matthews moving on to the NFL, Ogbuehi is expected to move to left tackle as a senior. If Ogbuehi had entered the 2013 NFL Draft, many thought he would be a late first-round pick. If he dominates as a senior, he could go high in the first round.

    Ogbuehi had an excellent 2012 season blocking for Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. With Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews at the tackle positions, Ogbuehi started inside at guard. He excelled in pass and run blocking on the inside. Given his body type some teams may think of him as a candidate to move inside.

    Personal: Recreation, parks and tourism sciences major. Son of Kelly and Chris Ogbuehi.
  2. Deshazor Everett, CB, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2015): 4-6.

    2/7/15: Everett had 73 tackles, an interception and seven passes broken up for 2014. The senior was torched by South Carolina in the season opener and gave up multiple touchdowns downfield throughout the year. He was also lit up by Alabama. Everett may have to move to safety in the NFL, but has the upside of being a nice contributor in run defense.

    8/27/14: Everett is a tough and physical player, but was disappointing as a junior. He needs to improve his coverage skills as a senior in order to rise. Everett was one of the few Aggie defenders to play well against Alabama in 2013, recording nine tackles. Late last year, he was burned in games against LSU and Missouri. Everett had 68 tackles with two interceptions and five passes broken up for the season.

    Everett broke into the starting lineup as a sophomore and turned in a strong season for the Aggies. He was one of the better cover cornerbacks in the SEC. The first-year starter totaled 56 tackles with seven passes broken up and two interceptions in 2012.

    Personal: Majoring in agricultural leadership and development. His guardians are Monica and Joseph Bolden.
  3. Jarvis Harrison, G, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 330.
    Projected 40 Time: 5.36.
    Projected Round (2014): 3-5.

    1/17/15: Harrison played well for the Aggies. He was solid in pass protection and opened up some holes in the ground game. Harrison had some issues against Mississippi State and Alabama.

    8/27/14: Harrison is a 3-year starter at guard and has been a steady performer for the Aggies. He is a reliable pass-blocker who can be effective in the ground game. Harrison had his best season as a junior while playing banged up. In the offseason leading to his senior year, he rehabbed after shoulder surgery and worked on a calf injury from the bowl win over Duke. The injuries have held Harrison back in the lead up to the 2014 season, and he is battling for his starting job according to head coach Kevin Sumlin.

    Personal: Son of Ramona Harrison. Agricultural leadership and development major.
  4. Tre Williams*, RB, Texas A&M
    Height: 5-8. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2015): 6-FA.

    2/14/15: Williams flashed at times in 2014, but the junior still only totaled 81 carries for the year. He ran for 560 yards (6.9 average) and seven touchdowns with 16 receptions for 105 yards and one touchdown. His best game was the bowl win over West Virginia when he did well running (11-86-1) and receiving (2-46-1). Williams posted modest production in 2013 (58-407) and 2012 (65-376).

    Personal: Son of Philip and Donna Williams. Agriculture leadership and development major.
  5. Mike Matthews, C, TA&M
    Height: 0-0. Weight: 0.
    40 Time: .
    Projected Round (2015): 2-4.

    12/6/14: Matthews had an excellent start to the season against South Carolina. He was a good run-blocker and effective in pass protection. The only games that Matthews underwhelmed in were against Mississippi State and Alabama.

    8/27/14: One could easily see this changing and Matthews rising in his round projection. He took over at center in 2013 and had a quality season. His pass protection was put to the test by Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel, yet he performed well. Matthews needs to add more strength for the NFL, which would help improve his effectiveness in the ground game.

    Matthews doesn't look like he has the same natural strength and athleticism of older brother Jake Matthews, the sixth-overall pick by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2014 NFL Draft. However, Matthews could become a solid starter and looks like a nice fit for a zone blocking scheme.

    Personal: Matthews is the son of NFL Hall of Fame offensive linemen Bruce Matthews. Older brother Jake Matthews was Texas A&M's starting left tackle in 2013 after dominating at right tackle for three seasons. Another older brother, Kevin Matthews, was a 2-year starter at center for the Aggies (2008-2009).
  6. Tra Carson, RB, TA&M
    Height: 0-0. Weight: 0.
    40 Time: .
    Projected Round (2015): 6-FA.

    12/20/14: Carson has spent 2014 as part of a running back rotation. He has 99 carries for 448 yards (4.5 average) with five touchdowns. Carson also has eight receptions for 58 yards.

    8/27/14: Even though Carson didn't get a lot of opportunities in 2013, he flashed when the Aggies gave him the chance. Carson averaged 5.3 yards per carry for 329 yards and seven touchdowns in 11 games.

    Carson is a physical, downhill runner. With Johnny Manziel in the NFL, Carson should get more opportunities to run the ball in 2014. He was a backup at Oregon in 2011, but transferred to Texas A&M after the season and sat out 2012.
