Texas A&M has been lucky enough to have more than a handful of successful quarterbacks come through their football program over the years. To name a few in recent years, College Station has been home to Johnny Manziel, Ryan Tannehill, and Trevor Knight.
There’s no shortage of football talent in the state of Texas, and as a result, the Aggies have had and always will have one of the best quarterbacks in the country. The past four years were no exception to this, as Aggies fans had the opportunity to watch their quarterback grow into an NFL prospect.
Kellen Mond had a shaky start to his A&M career but would ground himself by his sophomore season. In just a few years, he went from a guy who could barely throw more touchdowns than interceptions to one of the top NFL Draft prospects at the quarterback position.
Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond drastically improved each season
During his freshman season, nobody had an excess of confidence in the young player. He wasn’t necessarily bad. Rather, he seemed limited in his position. That said, he would continue to grow despite early criticisms. He became a more accurate passer, a smarter scrambler, and an extremely risk-free quarterback.
That’s the beauty of Mond as a passer — he took a significant step forward in each season as the leader of the Aggies’ offense. He started his time in College Station as a young, serviceable quarterback and finished as one of the best in A&M History.
But where does he rank all-time for the Aggies?
