At this stage of the first round, you might as well take some shots, right?

There have been some rumors that six quarterbacks could go in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, and one of those six could be either Davis Mills of Stanford or Kellen Mond of Texas A&M.

Although Mills might have the more traditionally desired style of playing the position compared to the dual-threat Mond, who knows what direction the Saints would want to go if they were interested in a quarterback prospect here?

Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill are vastly different styles of player, and Sean Payton has been known for making his system friendly to whatever quarterback is running it.

If the Saints decided to bring in a quarterback, they have a lot of talent to surround him with at the skill positions and on the offensive line.

Why Mond over Mills?

Mond has a ton of experience against SEC competition while Mills has played a small handful of games by comparison. Mond has more electric arm talent and athleticism and if he reaches his ceiling, I think that’s a better scenario for a team like the Saints.

The Saints could, of course, go with a different position here, but there is a chance they could be the team to take a sixth signal-caller off the board after Drew Brees’ retirement.
