This is not a serious sign. Half of recruiting is the school's record on getting kids to the NFL. Discouraging scouts from evaluating players runs absolutely contrary to the interest of all parties.

It's obviously a motivational tool. For one thing the list of names is printed on a separate sheet of paper. I'm guessing that sign gets alot of use every year and after your name is printed on that paper once you make the effort to keep it off. I think people are making too big of a deal about this and his combine interview. The guy obviously wants to play football and as far as positive environments for defensive players go. Houston has to be ranked right up there near the top.

I'm glad he did it... otherwise, some other team would be talking about their plans for Sam Montgomery. Instead, we got him & we got him cheap.

Let the speculation begin on Montgomery.

Texans also placed Sam Montgomery on non-football injury list

Typical reason for that is if a player gets hurt outside of playing football

Weird. Sam just posted on his twitter like 12 hours ago that he found himself working out extra. Can't really work out if you're hurt...

Hmm. Early indications are that this isn't someone we can bet on to be of much help, at least not immediately.

I've been backing the pick of Sam but its unacceptable to report to camp out of shape. He really needs to start figuring out what it means to be a Pro ASAP.

Default Re: 3rd round Sam Montgomery DE/OLB

Surprised??

From a Combine interview:

Quote:
“You know, some weeks when we didn’t have to play the harder teams, there were some times when effort was not needed,” he said.

“But when we had the big boys coming in — the Bamas or the South Carolinas — I grabbed close to those guys and went all-out.”

Montgomery had been showing up in the late first round of some mock drafts, but his stock could fall some after coaches find out he admitted to being kind of lazy on certain Saturdays.

Quote:
Sam Montgomery, Spencer Ware, Other LSU Football Players Called Out by Athletic Department to NFL Scouts for Laziness

Someone in the LSU athletic department has a cross to bare with ten LSU football players. There was a note left outside of the LSU athletic department offices that read: “Attention NFL Scouts: ‘The Following athletes miss workouts and always have an excuse. These men lack the self discipline and the motivation to take care of their responsibilities. I will not answer questions regarding their performance numbers or character as they care only about themselves.” The names listed were redshirt freshman offensive tackle Jonah Austin, sophomore guard La’el Collins, junior wide receiver James Wright, junior running back Spencer Ware, sophomore defensive tackle Anthony Johnson, sophomore safety Micah Eugene, freshman cornerback Dwayne Thomas, junior cornerback Tharold Simon, freshman linebacker Kwon Alexander and junior defensive end Sam Montgomery. Only Wright, Ware, Simon and Montgomery are NFL draft eligible.
The above wasn't strictly for "motivation"..........it was for laziness.

I've met the guy and also have friends in the LSU football program, and they have assured me he does not have a work ethic issue. Rookies show up out of shape to camp all the time because they are not used to NFL standards. It's not like he sat on the couch eating cheetos all summer. Calm down people.

What? He couldn't FIND the Cheetos?

Rookies may come to rookie orientation, minicamps and OTAs out of shape. But by the time TC comes around, they know exactly what is expected of them.

Maybe if Montgomery hasn't been able to understand NFL standards by now, he should have stayed at LSU and taken a couple more English courses.

It's going to be a long, hot August for Mr Montgomery. Plenty of time to shred it all away & build it back up with better nutrition, become the weight coach pet, haul the pads & equipment back/forth from lockers to field & back again. In fact I think we can safely say "it will not be a problem for him to reach playing weight condition" coming into camp with a bullseye on his back.
