2020 NFL mock draft: Raiders land elite talent in first round
The Raiders have their starting quarterback with Derek Carr under center, but with Gruden’s wondering mind to always look at passing talent, drafting a backup is very much in the cards. He’s already had four different backups on the team since the start of training camp, so who’s to say he doesn’t take a look at another backup through the draft.
Kellen Mond is a strong armed passer that isn’t afraid to take chances downfield. His film has occasional big plays that truly are amazing to how he pulled it off, but that also hurts him from time to time. He’s a big kid with a lean body type, which provides him with an above average to move out of the pocket. He possesses many traits that look appealing, although, he still has many things to redefine in order to take his game to the next level.
Mond bursted into action last season when he posted a touchdown to interception ratio of 24:9. He’s followed his breakthrough year with a similar 2019 campaign throwing for 2,214 yards, 17 touchdowns and six interceptions.
