The Minnesota Vikings pick Kellen Mond No. 66 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft on Friday night.

The Vikings have Kirk Cousins under contract until 2023. However, if Cousins does not get them over the hump and to an NFC Championship game at a minimum, the veteran signal-caller will be on his way out of Minnesota, which is why the Vikings were wise to add Kellen Mond in the draft.

Whether Mond works or not, the Vikings are being proactive.

A playmaker from the pocket who also beings athleticism, Mond has the skill set to succeed at the pro level as long as he is not thrust into an immediate starting role a la most quarterbacks selected in the top half of the first round.

It will take an injury to Cousins for Mond to see the field in any meaningful playing time in his rookie campaign.

Knowing Cousins’ contract situation — he will be a free agent in 2023 — if you draft Mond, then understand it could be two years before he brings any value to your fantasy football dynasty team.

Still, he has a semblance of a path to fantasy football production if you can afford to wait it out. I would not take Mond anytime before the fourth round of a rookie draft.
