Positives:

  • Explosiveness: Very explosive running style. Utilizes jump-cuts and is a threat to go from point A to point B if he puts his mind to it.
  • Route running: Fantastic route running ability. Great potential as a receiving back.
  • Lateral ability: Montgomery has great cutting ability. His explosiveness gives him to ability to put his foot in the turf and change direction. He creates for himself really well, and was able to make plays behind Iowa State’s below average line.
  • Strength: Possesses great strength, can grind through the trenches. Breaks arm tackles very well.

Negatives:

  • Lack of speed: Lacks long speed despite explosiveness.
  • Balance: Doesn’t possess consistency as far as balance goes. Can be chopped down at the legs very easily.

Summary:

Montgomery does not have a lot of weaknesses to his game. He is capable of shouldering the load of an offense. David Montgomery is one of the prospects of this draft that will be drafted to be the RB1 of an offense. He has a high floor and his versatility in the receiving game and goal line can provide a high ceiling as well.
