Ht: 6-5
Wt:
311

5.24

4Sr

Pos: Explosive thumper in the middle, tough to knock off his feet. Explodes off the snap and displays good range on the field. Takes up a lot of room in the middle of the line, keeps his feet moving on contact and is consistently doubled by opponents. Athletic and displays the ability to drop into coverage.

Neg: Must improve his hand technique and become quicker shedding blocks at the point. Not light on his feet. Seemingly tires easily.

Analysis: A solid run defender with the physical skills to develop into a player at the next level, Montgomery must improve the details of his game but offers a degree of upside.
