Strengths 

Mond is a good athlete at the quarterback position. He is a dual threat quarterback, who can inflict damage in the zone read game. He is also capable of picking up chunk yardage, when the play breaks down. He has good accuracy outside the pocket and on the run. However, he is a willing pocket passer. He will stand in the pocket and deliver strikes. He flashed good instinct and poise under pressure. He thrives off play action passes that only require him to read half the field. He has a strong arm and the unique ability to change arm angles to pass the ball around and over defenders. He was super productive as a 3 year starter at Texas A&M and showed a lot of toughness and leadership.

Weaknessess

Mond is inconsistent with his accuracy. He has a tendency to overthrow his receivers on deeper routes. He underthrows intermediate routes. He too often tries to aim the ball, which causes short arm throws instead of just trusting his arm. He holds on to the ball too long in the pocket, causing sacks and errant passes. His decision making is questionable at times. He too often throws into double coverage or tries to force the issue. He has a tendency to lock eyes with his first read. He also appears to be timid of throwing the deep ball and instead settles for underneath route concepts. He needs to work on his footwork in the pocket. When his platform is unbalanced, it causes wild throws.

Big Picture

Mond has the athletic tools to be a legit dual threat quarterback. He can make throws on the run and outside of the pocket. He is at his best, when he only has to make a few reads. He thrived in play action and RPO situations in college. Mond has a snappy throwing motion, that allows for him to change arm angles and deliver heaters...something that can not be taught. However, Mond is inconsistent as a passer. His deep ball tends to be overthrown and flat. He has a tendency to short arm intermediate and short passes. His decision making at times is concerning as well as his tendency to lock eyes with his first read. Surprisingly enough, Mond thrives under pressure. He shows grit and toughness in the pocket. He flashed the ability to stand in the pocket and deliver strikes with pressure bearing down on him. Mond is an intriguing, but raw prospect. He will need time to develop into a starter at the next level. He has the uncoachable tangibles that productive quarterbacks in the NFL have. It will just take the right system and coaching staff to iron out his field vision and decision making...look out this kid has the potential to be a stud.

Mond has the makings of being a good quarterback at the next level due to his raw arm talent. He has a fast twitch like release. His mechanics are good, but they disappear at times when he tries to aim the ball rather than just sling it. He has solid short accuracy, due to the velocity he generates on the football. His intermediate accuracy is decent, but has a tendency to under throw intermediate routes. He struggles pushing the ball deep. He consistently over throws his targets, which has caused him to be timid on going for the home run hitting type throws. He showed signs of touch, but again his ball placement is erratic and concerning at times. He appears to have good arm strength. For the most part, he is good at throwing on platform. However, he does need to work getting his feet set under pressure when possible.
