Texas A&M had one of the most explosive offenses in college football last season. With three key components of that offensive attack taken in the first round of the NFL Draft, however, several young players will need to step up for the Aggies. Here are the 5 players with the biggest shoes to fill for Texas A&M in 2014.

Noil was one of the top prospects in the country and will be a true freshman this fall. With Ryan Swope no longer playing football in College Station, Noil is primed to take Swope's role running quick routes over the middle, and he has the kind of game-breaking speed to make a big impact right away.

Ogbuehi will take over at left tackle for the departed Jake Matthews. The redshirt senior will anchor an offensive line that will have to adjust to blocking for someone other than Johnny Manziel. Ogbuehi is very talented himself, projected to be one of the top picks in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Seals-Jones is another highly rated receiver prospect for the Aggies. Unlike Noil, however, he's a big, physical wideout like Texas A&M standout Mike Evans. If Seals-Jones can turn into the big play threat that Evans was, it will go a long way to helping the Aggies regain their explosive form on offense.

Williams will be the Aggies' lead back with Ben Malena now graduated. The junior running back has scored 11 rushing touchdowns over the past two seasons and averaged 7.0 yards per carry in 2013. If he can continue to pick up big chunks on the ground in 2014, that will help take pressure off the team's new quarterback.

Hill is the projected successor to Johnny Manziel at quarterback. The junior's only game experience has come finishing up games in garbage time, but he will be fully exposed to SEC defenses this season. If Hill struggles as the team's signal-caller, top recruit Kyle Allen could take over running the offense.
