Texas A&M's quarterback competition is down to either two or four guys, depending on how you look at it.
Having given up Ryan Tannehill to whatever the NFL Draft may make of him, Texas A&M is in the market for a new starting quarterback as they prepare to enter the SEC. As spring ball winds down, the Aggies still don't have a starter, making them one of darn near half the teams in the conference without a specific direction at the position.

Only Showers has any game experience, having lofted a handful of tosses last year. He's also got the dual threat thing going for him, which is always nice. Some observers have felt he's been the best in A&M's spring efforts thus far, with Manziel showing up in second.
