The Bears are watching Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond.
And he’s flirting back.
“I definitely see a connection [with the Bears],” he said last week after his on-campus pro day. “I definitely don’t want to say any names — but you know you know I’m definitely excited, especially them being able to watch me in person and watch me spin and spin the ball in person.”
The Bears sent quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo to College Station, Texas to see Mond — and to Palo Alto, California, to watch Stanford’s Davis Mills.
It’s a reminder that the list of quarterbacks in this year’s draft doesn’t stop after the top five five.
