The Bad


We have not seen Mond process a full field in his time at Texas A&M, at least not on a consistent basis. It takes him a little bit longer to get through his progressions, which allows the pocket to collapse. While he is poised against the rush, there are still times where the collapsed pocket will challenge Mond and force some bad throws.

His decision-making, in general, is questionable, but that’s something that you have to hope will change with better coaching and sitting behind a veteran NFL starting quarterback. Kirk Cousins may not be the perfect quarterback, but he has done a great job of limiting his mistakes and not making back-breaking errors.


To say Mond was not an accurate passer in college is an understatement. He only completed 59 percent of his attempts over four seasons with the Aggies and never completed more than 63.3 percent of his throws in a single season. He did improve his completion percentage every year, which is promising, but that number is remarkably low.

Interceptions were not too common for Mond, throwing just 27 in four seasons, but there were some erratic throws for sure. He loves to take risky shots down the field that is not going to work in the NFL. That’s one thing I would love to see him clean up.
