The Pittsburgh Steelers apparently liked what they saw from Texas A&M this past season, as they used both of their fourth round picks in the 2021 NFL Draft on Aggies, selecting OT Dan Moore 128th overall and LB Buddy Johnson 140th overall. They become the third and fourth Aggies drafted this weekend, joining QB Kellen Mond and DT Bobby Brown.

Dan Moore played left tackle on an offensive line that was the strength of the 2020 team, creating open rushing lanes and allowing the fewest sacks in the SEC. Johnson, meanwhile, anchored an A&M defense that finished the season as the best unit in the SEC, leading the team in tackles by a wide margin.
According to Spotrac.com, Moore should be in line for a signing bonus just under $700,000 and a total contract worth $4.1 million. Johnson should receive a signing bonus just under $500,000 and a total contract worth of more than $3.9 million.
