Does this mean Reed could end up at ILB?

Mayok said he fell due to his interviews. Some teams took him off the board. But physically, he's a solid 2nd round grade. The team just needs to "keep him on track."

Mayock said teams took him off their draft board because they didn't like his "profile" ... didn't like what the kid was all about, in his words. Any idea what the heck he's talking about?

I'm starting to believe that now. We're not drafting a starter in the 4th, and we don't have the cap space for another FA.

He ran a 4.81 at the combine.

Right? I think our scouts got stuck in that region.

I don't think he moved to ilb. With swearinger our 3rd safety will play more snaps then our 2ilb. And there are still a couple guys available still

A pick very outside the usual strict guidelines we have for draftees

From Walterfootball:
Quote:

Montgomery didn't stand out at either the Combine or his pro day. There are a lot of concerns about his work ethic. Montgomery admitted to taking plays and entire games off. Some teams feel that he is lazy, so he could fall to the third day of the draft.
Definitely don't like to hear that.

Also Montgomery and swearinger played on the same high school team.

"Now that's really interesting pick. He's a guy who on tape is a solid, solid second-round pick. But a lot of teams didn't like his interview process. Teams didn't like his profile as far as who the kid was and what he was all about. They weren't sure he was focused on football, and a lot of teams quite frankly took him off the board. From a football perspective, the Texans just got a steal." -- Mike Mayock
Sounds like a guy with a VY mindset. That usually doesn't end well.

I dont think so - They only had Reed , Mercilus and Braman on the roster at OLB prior to this selection.


Still quite a few ILBers on the board who could start from day one: AJ Klien , Nico Johnson , Kevin Reddick and a couple OLB's who probably translate better to ILB on the pro level - Khaseem Greene , Chase Thomas & Sean Porter.


I like Klien the most as he has the coverage skills to deal with the TE's and RB's leaving Cushing to be that 5th rusher on most occasions.

Like this... RT @BlakeDickey2: DJ Swearinger and Sam Montgomery were on same high school team and are now reunited in NFL.
We drafted his HS team mate in the 2nd round. Motivation?
