And here's what Herring said:

Quote:
(on if he envisions Montgomery lining up over the tight end initially) Thats a great question. What wed like to do is wed like to start him out on the tight end as a SAM position. First, we have to find out can he drop and how adequate he can be. If he can make the transition and drop to the point where first and second down, hes not hurting the football team and hes okay or at least adequate in his job. The other things that he brings to the table could make him an outstanding player and a potential star for us someday. Thats what we see, starting him out at SAM. Weve got to find out. Then, if he cant, we always have the easy transition to move him over to the weak side and say you rush 95 percent of the time, which we know he can do off the edge as he did as a d-end in college. We try the most difficult task first. We throw him in the fire and see if it works. At the least, we see him as having sub-rush value which right now, with Connor Barwin moving on and having Brooks Reed and (Whitney) Mercilus, the only other outside backer we have on campus is Bryan Braman. This guy, Bryan has talent, speed and ability, but this guy right now possesses a very raw power in speed to power rush that could help us as far as depth and pass rush as the year goes on. So he does fill a void.
Looks like OLB to me.
