2020 Early Heisman Early Odds: Best Value Candidate No. 7
QB Kellen Mond, Texas A&M 50/1
You want to do this? You want your Think Outside The Box candidate to get behind?
How about a veteran quarterback on a team that has a ton of pressure on its shoulders to produce – not to mention its head coach that needs to step it up – with an offense that might just start to open it up a bit.
Mond will have the receivers to work with, he’ll have the talent around him to thrive, and he’ll have plenty of big-game moments to shine.
Remember, we’re talking about a 50/1 guy here.
Mond might have had an underwhelming season, but he picked it up in the bowl win over Oklahoma State with 117 rushing yards and a score to carry the team to the win.
He has a more-than-manageable first half slate to work with, and then come his moments with a trip to Auburn, a date at Alabama, and LSU over the second half of the season.
If LSU could turn the corner last year, can A&M be that team? Again, at 50/1, it’s the shot for the stars.
