Sam Montgomery

School: LSU
Position: DE
Bio: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons as well as being named to several all-America teams after his sophomore campaign of 2011. Junior totals from last year included 37 tackles/13 tackles for loss/8 sacks after 49/13.5/9 the prior year.
Positive: Explosive pass-rushing defensive end with a one-dimensional game. Good athlete who plays with excellent balance and body control. Gets leverage on opponents, keeps his feet moving on contact, and works his hands throughout the play. Displays the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack, rarely knocked off his feet, and fast off the edge. Explosive, easily changes direction, and shows the ability to pursue plays from the back side.
Negative: Does not display an explosive first step off the snap and gets out positioned from the action by blockers. Slow to react. Occasionally gets caught pinning his ears back and rushing up the field regardless of the play. Made comments during the combine where he admitted taking plays off last season.
Analysis: Montgomery was a solid player in the LSU formation but lacks the great athleticism and upside for the next level. He's an undersized pass-rushing defensive end who will struggle if move to outside linebacker. Montgomery has the ability to contribute if his priorities are in order and he's focused on football.
