Rising draft stock? Kellen Mond turns big 2nd half into Senior Bowl MVP honor
With two touchdown passes, and a 2-point run, former Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond took home the MVP honor at the Senior Bowl on Saturday in Mobile, Alabama.
“It’s a huge sign of everything that I’ve worked for,” Mond said in a post-game interview with the NFL Network. “Obviously, I’ve definitely had some ups and downs throughout my career, but to finally come out here on a huge stage and perform the way I wanted to, and execute, it was definitely huge.”
Mond was 13-for-25 passing for 173 yards and two touchdowns. He also had two carries for 11 yards.
Mond said he tried to evaluate “all aspects of growth” this past offseason to improve off his junior season.
“It’s been a huge blessing, and I’ve had a lot of great people around me,” he said.
Mond said he showed NFL scouts his ability to compete, and overcome a slow start.
“The ability to bounce back and still show poise and I had a bunch of great throws,” he said. “So I’m super blessed and fortunate and a lot of great people around me and definitely going to celebrate with my family.”
