my buddy actually shot a mallard that looked just like this one a few weeks ago, no white ring on neck, no brown on the chest, and the color on the wings were a dark green/black. It was also way bigger than the other mallards we shot, my guess was just some sort of cross with a farm duck but I could be wrong.

That is a hybrid of some sorts. The body is like mallards that have no ring and no brown breast as mentioned but the wings are not all mallard. Also the feet give away some other species in its lineage. Since it looks like a lot of mallard it may be a second generation Mallard cross. Meaning it is 1/4 something and 3/4 mallard. My guess is wigeon from the wing characteristics.
