One of the safest runners in this draft with a desirable combination of size, vision, toughness and creativity. He runs with impressive calm and instincts in the midst of interior mayhem, weaving and battering his way through traffic. Smart teams will recognize his ability to create yardage for himself with his eyes, footwork, contact balance and power. Should alleviate concerns about his lack of explosiveness. Montgomery has a pro-ready game and Day 2 (Rounds 2-3) value as a good NFL starter.

I don’t love him, but he’s a decent value in R3.

Mark Helfrich apparently loved him when he was announcing and covering Iowa State games.

The Iowa State head coach said Montgomery was the teams best WR from the slot.

He was low 4.5 at pro day, and many backs run 4.6

This is going to be a woohoo pick for us!

This dude is a Spry J. Howard who has really good receiving skills.

Now... Who wants to start the Monty vs Singletary thread?

Not me. 40 is overrated and I bet with pads on he is faster than a lot of the 4.5 guys

He ran a 4.58 at his Pro Day. He doesn't have long speed but he's a good one wab, I promise.

I don’t dislike the guy. He’s a more nimble Jordan Howard that can catch. Similar to Mike Davis.

I think I was just hoping for more of a home run hitter.

Maybe not a whole thread, but Singletary was my #2 back.

FWIW, the Bears have one of those on Tarik Cohen.

Montgomery should be a millionaire's Mike Davis.

He is a hammer like Howard that can catch the ball fluidly and be a threat on that part of the offense as well

Chicago Bears (via trade): RB David Montgomery, Iowa St. – GM Ryan Pace has never met an aggressive trade up he hasn’t liked. When he has conviction on a prospect, Pace does not wait – and Montgomery is worth vaulting up for. He was a top-50 player for us and should be a featured back, even in an offense with Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis. Montgomery has great elusiveness and balance and will be a fan favorite for his on- and off-field presence. A mature person and a very productive player. Grade: A-

As an ISU alum, was hoping they'd go for him! Pretty cool to be able to root for him in the pro's too

I talked to David and covered him many times when I worked as a sports journalist. This is a guy you want in your team's locker room.

I like it. Seems like he is a good fit for our offense
