Default Re: Figuring Out Sonic Sam Montgomery

value pick. in mold of a young Antonio Smith. Needs to work hard & add 10-15 lbs (in due time) kick inside as RDE with his hand in the dirt. Taking one of the LSU DL was a theme of my final mock, in fact I had Texans select Lavar Edwards in 4th. Montgomery is a far better pass rusher & higher graded player 2nd/3rd rd.

after seeing who Texans selected, more than ever to me these guys are all future replacements for current players on this roster, ie. Hopkins for Andre, Swearinger for Reed, Montgomery for Smith & Williams for Barwin. We all know & love the Ninja, who better to teach him the trick of the trade, both on & off field think they fit well together, adding plus value, just like the others

Rookie linebacker eager to fit in on Texans' defense
Montgomery seeking out advice from veterans


Quote:
ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay had him as the 19th and 14th overall selection, respectively. Kiper called him "a proven, high-motor defender with pass-rushing skills."

But as the draft process progressed and teams spent time with him, Montgomery dropped...
Quote:
Now trying to work his way into a big role on the Texans' defense, Montgomery seeks the guidance of the veterans around him, especially one with whom he feels a special kinship. The outside linebacker speaks of his alter ego, Sonic the Hedgehog, so naturally he felt drawn to defensive end Antonio Smith, who calls himself the ninja warrior.

Beyond the goofiness, though, is a tinge of sadness - Sonic the Hedgehog was a game he played with his older brother, who died five years ago - a show of solidarity and an eagerness to improve.
Quote:
...Even though Smith doesn't play his position, Montgomery values his advice.

"He keeps on teaching me everything," Montgomery said. "Being aggressive, doing different things, improving my game from small tech points, encouraging words, coming out here ready to fight and going 110 percent every day. Hand techniques, finishing blocks. Also playing with aggressive and violent hands.

"It's a different type of aggressive in the NFL. It's like an abusive aggressive on the field. He's teaching me what I need in detail and trying to critique my violence to be abusive."

Impressive he is physically able to loosen major body hinges but like Antonio his natural fit is DE. In time. Real enjoyable to follow his development. One of my themes leading up to the draft was for Texans to grab one of those LSU linemen. They were all physically gifted, talented football players any of which could fit in rotation somewhere. I think Texans got this one right.
