The Texas A&M Football team had as much security as anybody at the quarterback position over the last four years. After taking over the starting spot his freshman year, Kellen Mond didn’t look back. He would establish himself as one of the best Aggie quarterbacks of all time.
In his four years in College Station, he accumulated nearly 10,000 yards through the air. He would also throw for 71 touchdowns and just 27 interceptions, increasing his touchdown to interception ratio in each of his seasons with the Aggies.
All of his success as the starting quarterback has translated to something bigger than college football: A chance to be taken in the 2021 NFL Draft. Mond isn’t thought of as one of the top prospects in the draft, but he could be a sneaky first-round talent.

While he still likely won’t be taken in the first round, there will be a handful of teams fighting over him early on. Jimbo Fisher recently stated that at least ten teams have spoken with Mond about joining their franchise, so the interest is definitely there.
It’s just a matter of what goes down in the NFL Draft. That said, the Aggies’ former quarterback has a high draft-day ceiling and a low draft-day floor. Let’s look into potential scenarios for Kellen Mond in the 2021 NFL Draft.
