The Minnesota Vikings might not need a quarterback for 2021, but they grabbed one to look down the road with their third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, selecting Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond.
(Follow along with every pick in the FTN Draft Tracker.)
Mond played all four years for the Aggies, totaling 9,661 passing yards and a 71:27 TD:INT ratio. He’ll play behind Kirk Cousins in Minnesota. Cousins is under contract for two more seasons, though there have been rumors about his eventual departure from Minnesota. Mond isn’t likely to see the field much in 2021, but if something happens to Cousins, Mond would have a nice group of weapons to work with in WRs Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen, RB Dalvin Cook and TE Irv Smith. — Daniel Kelley
