Hartselle Tigers (15-0) 5-A State Champ
I think if you're the type that favors speed and athleticism over consistency and ability to get the job done on a down-to-down basis, you're not going to be particularly fond of Montgomery. Naturally, you're going to be drawn more towards kids like Mingo or Dion Jordan. What I like about Montgomery is that when physical, NFL style games along the line of scrimmage break out in the SEC, Montgomery is the guy that's able to handle it. He's the one making plays in these type of games for LSU's defensive line. LSU was in a battle with Auburn in a game where Auburn played over their head, and the game was going to be won or lost at the line of scrimmage... LSU won by 2... Montgomery caused that safety at the point of attack. Against an offensive line like Alabama, Montgomery was the only guy who could hang in there physically and make plays with a key sack and TFL while some of his raw teammates are invisible. Again, I think it goes back to analyzing guys who are able to accumulate "college sacks" versus guys who can physically stand up in trench warfare.
