Pittsburgh will give Mond one season to sit behind Ben Roethlisberger to learn and adapt to the NFL. The Steelers are full of talent at the wide receiver position and will give Kellen Mond something he didn't have at Texas A&M, a defense. Mike Tomlin is one of the best coaches in the NFL and could land Roethlisberger's replacement in Kellen Mond.

This is potentially the final season when Russell Wilson will wear a Seattle Seahawks uniform. They'll need to find a replacement once he's gone. Kellen Mond could benefit a lot from sitting behind Russell Wilson for an entire season and learning the trade.

Pete Carroll is a great decision maker when it comes to the NFL Draft. If Kellen Mond is sitting there at number 56, it will not surprise anyone if they go with Mond in the second-round. With a year behind Russell Wilson getting used to the NFL, Kellen Mond will be ready to take over the Seahawks in his second year in the game.
