MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have drafted Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond, with their first of four third-round picks. He's a potential successor to Kirk Cousins. Mond was the No. 66 overall pick and the seventh quarterback off the board. Five went in the first 15 selections. Mond was a four-year starter for the Aggies. He has the ability to be the type of dual-threat player that’s the trend at his position in the NFL. He is the highest-drafted quarterback by the Vikings since Christian Ponder was their first-round pick in 2011.
