Sam Montgomery Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'5 - 260 lbs.|
|Draft Prediction:||First Round|
2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU
The 6'5", 260 lb. junior plays with good pad level and drives into blockers to collapse the pocket. He plays in the backfield with a high motor and can clog running lanes. His active hands can push around opponents and put himself into position to make a play on the ball. Projects best as a 4-3 DE, assuming he continues to add bulk.
Not a true speed pass rusher as he relies more on strength to bully his way to the quarterback. Great body control off the edge and can turn a blocker around. Montgomery can reset his hips well to maintain leverage and drive with his lower body.
After the season is over, scouts will want to see his explosion off the line and short area quickness. There are very few concerns about his run support, only questions whether he has a well-rounded game that translates to the next level. The 3-4 teams are also going to evaluate whether he can play OLB in their systems.
Montgomery has a great motor and really appears to love the game. His commitment to the game should carry him to having a good career. He projects as a late-first to second round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.
