Montgomery was on a list put up by LSU coaches saying that the listed players regularly miss workouts, always have an excuse, and only care about themselves.
He missed 1 workout. ONE.

On top of that he is a 4-3 END, NOT A STRONGSIDE LINEBACKER. He will not be able to hold up in coverage. Tom Brady and his tight ends would exploit him to no end.
He won't be asked to hold up in coverage. You think you know how to use Montgomery better than Wade and Herring do? Really? His job is to jam the hell out of the TE, to read run or pass and then stuff the run or get after the QB. He might be asked to play some zone but coverage is not his purpose.

Here is a scouting report from nfl.com so you can see what Hughes brings to the table. He would not have been a reach in the 3rd round IMO. Montori Hughes and is more talented than Jones and Hughes has the potential to command a double team, something that any team needs.

Montori Hughes started off at the University of Tennessee and was suspended multiple times and ultimately dismissed.

And something from your own link:
Quote:
He needed a prep school detour for academic issues, which dogged him during his time in Tennessee as well before his dismissal from that program. Teams will need to see him prove his work ethic...
Montori Hughes is a lazier and much less athletic version of Travis Johnson. He's got danger flags all over him.

Sam Montgomery is a high motor player. The games he "took off" were games where LSU won by more than 30 points. He played his best in the higher pressure games.
