Re: Draft Grade - Round 3/2 Sam Montgomery
i think yall are over complicating montgomery's role on the defense. he's basically replacing barwin. his main role will be to anchor the edge in our base personnel at SOLB and provide a heavier skillset at DE in our nickel packages to help prevent some of the weakness we had last season. he's not going to kick inside and replace smith, he's adding beef outside opposite the more singular pass rushers mercilus and williams while still able to collapse the pocket and get to the quarterback. he'll at most be asked to shadow runningbacks in coverage, but even that's unlikely unless we start losing ILB's again.
