QB Kellen Mond

Texas A&M | Senior | Round 3, Pick 2

Mond was the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback recruit in the country in 2017. He played with his Texas A&M teammate, receiver Jhamon Ausbon, at IMG Academy in Florida, where he transferred for his senior season. In his true freshman year, he started eight of 11 games played (117 of 227, 51.5 completion percentage, 1,375 yards, eight touchdowns, six interceptions; 89 carries, 340 yards, 3.8 yards per carry, three touchdowns), replacing injured QB1 Nick Starkel. Mond earned the first of two Team Offensive MVP awards in 2018 and was also named the team's Most Improved Player after starting all 13 games (238 of 415, 57.3 completion percentage, 3,107 yards, 24 touchdowns, nine interceptions; 149 rushes, 544 yards, 3.7 yards per carry, seven touchdowns). He was part of a historic regular season finale that season, as A&M beat LSU 74-72 in seven overtimes. Mond again started all 13 games as a junior, completing 61.6 percent of his throws (258 of 419) for 2,897 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also scored eight touchdowns on the ground (126 carries, 500 yards, 4.0 yards per carry) and won the Texas Bowl MVP Award (95 passing yards, one touchdown; 119 rushing yards, one touchdown). Mond became A&M's all-time leader in most career passing categories and tied Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel with 93 total touchdowns after leading the team to a 9-1 finish as a 10-game starter in 2020 (188 of 297, 63.3 completion percentage, 2,282 yards, 19 touchdowns, three interceptions; 74 carries, 294 yards, 4.0 yards per carry, four touchdowns). He accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl and was named MVP of the game. -- by Chad Reuter
