It looks like the Pittsburgh Steelers are doing their homework and making their rounds at many of the College's Pro Days this offseason. So far they have been seen at Florida State, Auburn, Penn State, Alabama, Michigan, Georgia, and Clemson's Pro Day. Now you can add Texas A&M to the list. There has been much speculation in the offseason if the Steelers will be looking at quarterbacks and today we finally got our answer.
The Steelers are in attendance at Texas A&M's Pro Day to watch quarterback Kellen Mond according to Jim Nagy on Twitter. Mond is an athletic quarterback who is very patient in the pocket. He has a next-level arm and loves to fire the ball through tight windows. He throws the ball with a lot of speed and never seems to lose speed when throwing the ball. Pro Football Network feels Kellen Mond could be a second-day pick in the 2021 NFL draft.
Here are the Best Fits for QB Kellen Mond according to Pro Football Network:
"Whatever the case, Mond has some appeal as a backup or developmental starter in the middle rounds, and with his modest improvement in 2020, there’s a chance a team could take him on Day 2. Teams like the Colts, Steelers, and Bears stand out as potential fits."
"Mond is by no means a Day 1 starter, but in a situation that affords him time and support, he could eventually start to trend upwards."
"Mond’s stagnation as a prospect over the last two years gives onlookers pause. But the Texas A&M quarterback’s tape is dotted with high-quality throws layered between less inspiring moments. There’s enough upside there to warrant consideration as a future starter, and while Round 1 isn’t a possibility anymore, he should have a chance to work into a role in the NFL."
