Draft Profile: Iowa State RB David Montgomery – Phong Ta

by Phong Ta

David Montgomery

5’11, 216 lbs, Junior

2018 stats(12 Gms):

257 carries, 1216 rushing yards, 13 rush TDs, 22 receptions, 157 receiving yards

Strengths:

Balance: Due to low-set hips and a low center of gravity, Montgomery has superb balance that allows him to remain upright even after first contact.

Durability: Did not miss a game throughout college career despite heavy workload(250+ carries last 2 seasons). The type of runner that will wear a defense down if given enough touches throughout the course of a game.

Receiving Ability: Has shown soft hands throughout his collegiate career. Was schemed open via motion in the passing game to get him plays in space.

Weaknesses:

Athleticism: Lacks above average burst through the hole and long speed, two traits that will likely limit his big play potential.

Vision: Can sometimes get jittery when the play goes awry and his first read isn’t there and try to bounce it outside, rather than simply taking what’s given.

Summary:

Montgomery has the tools needed to excel as a gap/power runner in the NFL. Relative lack of burst may limit his upside in a zone scheme. His solid receiving ability will make him a respected threat on all 3 downs, although he seems best suited to early down work as a tough, rugged downhill runner.
