The rest are depth guys. The two Juniors are expected to be top 5 picks, so I can't blame them for going, but I sure wish they had stayed. The A&M recruiting class this year is the best in a long time, so I'm not too worried about it. I think 5 of the recruits are Juco transfers, which will help fill the holes. They have a great blocking TE recruit coming in that is in the size of Gronkowski, so I think he will help keep the pocket clean and slow down edge rushers.
There are 3 big body WRs recruits too, and I expect at least one of them to be in the starting rotation. Ricky Seals-Jones is ranked as the #8 WR in the country on ESPN, so I hope he works out well. Seems like a good kid too.
