Draft Diamonds: Kellen Mond

Kellen Mond is the most slept on QB in this draft class. Mond, a 4-year starter at Texas A&M, has had projections ranging from Day 2 to day 3; but I’m telling you right now, he is the future of the NFL.

Mond took the world by storm when he won the starting job his freshman year. He was able to start each season after that with massive expectations. In 2019, His yards dropped significantly and people started to doubt as A&M finished outside of the top 25. His 2020 was the crowning year for Mond he threw for over 2,000 yards, 19 TDs and only 3 INTs.

Positives

+ Good Size

+ Strong Runner

+ Decent arm strength

+ Works well through the moderate range of yards

Negatives

– Bad pocket awareness

– Questionable throws

– Needs consistant big game ability

When I look at Mond I see a wealth of potential. I wouldn’t say he’s a day 1 starter, but that’s not a knock against him. He needs a lot more time to develop.

Best fits

•Patriots

•Bears

•Steelers

The biggest need for anyone thinking of drafting Mond is getting a veteran to groom him and help him develop. There is no doubt in my mind the Kellen Mond can and will be a starter in the NFL, just not right away. A team that trades for Stafford could also benefit from drafting Mond to become a project. The future is bright for this young QB.

Sam Howell Has Never Had Steak and Texas Will Have Their Revenge

Three most American things in reverse order, Steak, Football, and Hummers. I’m not sure if Sam Howell has ever driven a Hummer or even if he’s seen one, but I know one thing for sure. He’s never tasted steak or had a burger.

In the frenzy of media interviews before the Orange Bowl, Sam was asked to say a random fact about himself. He chose to reveal that he only eats chicken and has never tasted steak.

Dude, you’re about to face the best team in Texas in Texas A&M (yes that felt weird to say) and you’re going to reveal that you’ve never graced your tastebuds with the most glorious gift from the food gods, beef? They’re going to eat you medium rare with a baked potato.

Hey Howell, is your Chicken Nuggies enough to be a champion? No. Side note. Any adult who says “Chicken Nuggies or Chicken Tendies” is a fucking toddler who shouldn’t be allowed to join society until they learn how to speak like an adult. Go back to your crib and watch Frozen.

Don’t take my triggered chicken take wrong, I’ll indulge in some CHICKEN NUGGETS (certified adult), but you can’t give A&M an inch in this game you just gave them a whole mile.
