Looking back at all the pre-draft threads, there was little to no talk about this kid here because we all thought he'd be gone. Kinda crazy that the Bears got arguably the best back in the draft in the 3rd round.

Yeah I had him as the 3rd best top of the second. I think most has him similarly graded.

I had him going in the top of the 2nd. After Jacobs and just before Sanders.

I think G08 and I had a mini discussion on him and how I wasn't a fan because of his long speed. After the draft and reading much more about him, I'm pretty excited to see what he can do in the offense.

I was so focused on Miles Sanders that I didn't do enough to look at Montgomery. But after reading about him and watching YouTubes I'm glad he's here.

Run DMC (Davis, Montgomery and Cohen) is going to be fun to watch.

Yeah, I was focused on Sanders as well but when I would mess around with draft sims it was usually Mongomery or Sanders that was available when I would pick so I saw a lot of Montgomery's highlights as well... I thought both would be great backs but once the combine came along I was sold on Sanders.

What I didn't do was watch much if any interviews with the players until we drafted him and when you listen to Montgomery it's really easy to root for him. He just projects confidence and has a calming vibe about him. The fact his dad got him into watching Payton videos is pretty cool as well because you can see a little of Sweetness in his highlight reels. It'll be fun watching him over the next 5+ years!

I wish he would change his number though LOL... Seeing another RB with that number just gives me flashbacks to Ben$on. Hopefully, he can do so well I forget about who wore that number before him. ;)
”Damn -- Khalil Mack had another strip sack?” Gruden asked rhetorically, shaking his head at the Oakland Raiders assistant coaches in his midst. “Are you ... kidding me?”

I don't think anyone in the history of the Bears that has worn #32 has really amounted to anything - so here's hoping to Montgomery changing that trend.
