Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

A dual-threat quarterback in high school, the two-star recruit from Cincinnati went to Iowa State and led the Cyclones in rushing (563 yards) as part of a committee as a true freshman. He then assumed lead-dog duties in 2017 and 2018, collecting 2,362 yards and 24 touchdowns on 515 carries (4.6 average) over that span. He also caught 71 passes for 582 yards over three seasons, including 36 grabs for 296 yards in 2017.

ANALYSISMontgomery's numbers aren't eye-popping, but he has the size, vision, toughness and physicality to be a sustaining NFL back. He creates yards through bodies and tight spaces with excellent power, and his ability to sniff out lanes and set up linebackers is equally impressive. Though not explosive, he runs with great rhythm and fluidity, setting up moves back-to-back and quickly transitioning from power to agility and back to power.

Montgomery carried a heavy workload in college and lacks great speed (4.63-second 40-yard dash) or explosion, lowering his ceiling. He doesn't have the short-area burst and elusiveness to make multiple defenders miss, and his body could take significant punishment because he relies so much on power and physicality. Many will view him as a power back as part of a committee.
