Texas A&M's Kellen Mond Is Rising Up Draft Boards By Doing Things His Way

Leading up to the most consequential performance of his life, Kellen Mond wanted to write the script alone.

He knew what the scouts coming to see him wanted from a quarterback. He knew what kind of questions they had about him as a person and a player. He knew what kind of throws created explosive plays at the next level.

Gone were throws out of the shotgun, since people would wonder if he could operate under center.
