Every year, programs must replace key players.

This is a team-by-team look at 13 SEC programs (Chip Towers and Seth Emerson have UGA covered) and a key player who must be replaced this season.

Who replaces Cedric Ogbuehi? Like defensive linemen at Missouri, the Aggies have produced outstanding left tackles such as Luke Joeckel, Jake Matthews and Ogbuehi, all first-round picks in the past three years.

Avery Gennesy and Germain Ifedi are competing to replace Ogbuehi this season, but Ifedi (6-5, 325) started at right tackle last year and the Aggies could decide to keep him there.

If the coaching staff does that, expect Gennesy (6-5, 305), who redshirted in 2014, to protect quarterback Kyle Allen (or Kyler Murray) from the left side.

Gennesy, who transferred from East Mississippi Community College, and Ifedi practiced at both positions this spring.

“I think Avery Gennesy and Germain Ifedi are really, really solid tackles for us,” coach Kevin Sumlin told 247Sports.
