Sports Illustrated released their 2017 All-America Team on Wednesday, and two Texas A&M Aggies made the cut. Junior Christian Kirk was named the first-team return man, and Senior Armani Watts was named the second-team safety.
Its fitting these two Aggies would be paired together on this list. They’re the leaders of their respective offensive and defensive units, they’re roommates, both were brought to SEC Media Days, and both have been projected as first-round picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. These two guys staying healthy and productive in 2017 could lead the way for a successful season for A&M.
SEC first-teamers include Derrius Guice (RB), LSU, Calvin Ridley (WR), Alabama, Arden Key (LB), LSU, and Minkah Fitzpatrick (DB), Alabama.
