Chicago Bears: 5 draft targets whose stock rose at Senior Bowl
By Joseph Herff
Chicago Bears draft stock: Kellen Mond | Quarterback | Texas A&M
This quarterback draft class is very top-heavy, but after the top six, there is a fight for the next best quarterback. Kellen Mond may have risen his draft stock to the seventh-ranked quarterback after his performance in the Senior Bowl.
Mond won the MVP honors of the Senior Bowl completing 13 of his 25 pass attempts for 173 yards and two touchdowns. Although that completion percentage isn’t great, keep in mind that he started playing with these players for only a week in preparation for this game. He looked extremely impressive in this game.
Mond has all the intangibles that are desirable in a quarterback these days. He has the ideal size, arm strength, and athleticism to be a great NFL quarterback. His decision-making and accuracy are questionable, but that is why he is a great late-round pick at quarterback.
With only Nick Foles returning the Bears should take a late-round dart throw at quarterback unless they trade for someone or draft someone early. Mond is the perfect quarterback to develop behind a starter if the Bears bring in a new bridge quarterback.
