Wrong section next time post in NFL section. As far as Lloyd he has been debated here quite offen. Texans will bring in a vet WR or two before training camp and see who sticks. Lloyd may be out of HOU price range,

I think you're right but you're wrong. I think Montgomery replaces Barwin.

Default Re: 3rd round Sam Montgomery DE/OLB

One of the main problems Montgomery is gonna have as a Texan is finding another jersey number. JJ MEGAWATT isn't coming off of that #99!

Other than that I think it could end up being a great pick but as always we'll all have to wait a while to see.

Nah. I think Herring is throwing us a red herring.

He says they're going to put Montgomery at OLB and see what happens, but I think he belongs as a bookend to JJ Watt. Antonio Smith disappeared in December, he was part of the problem with the death spiral we had across the board. A lot of fans will argue it, because of his popularity and persona, but he has to play a bigger GAME CHANGING ROLE than he has. He's getting tackles, he's getting pressures, but every year that ticks off is a year closer to his retirement. That's why Montgomery makes sense.

So, sure, Montgomery starts out at OLB...but he will be the successor to the Antonio Smith throne. I don't know what savings we could get from cutting Smith now, or cutting him next season, but if that frees up cap space...the Texans have no problem moving onward from Antonio Smith, and Montgomery--to me, from what I see--is a DL guy, not an OLB. Yes, we've used a bigger guy (Barwin) as an OLB, but I think Antonio's age, cap situation, and lack of consistency has urged the Texans to draft his successor. They cut Eric Winston, they can cut Antonio Smith too if they want to.

To not make waves with a veteran like Antonio Smith, who runs his mouth like crazy, you will say things such as "Montgomery will be an OLB," when you know full well that those plans are just that: Plans.

The more a coach talks about how he's going to use the new rookie, the more I tend to slough it off as coach speak. Wade said he was going to get Mercilus on the field in unique ways, and I don't think they did it to the extent they should have. Hopefully the lackluster 2012 performance will spur Wade and Herring And Joseph to let Montgomery and Swearinger see the field as much as possible. If they get hurt, they get hurt...you draft more next year. If they don't pan out, you want to know NOW...so that you can draft it again the next year.

I like the picks of Hopkins and Montgomery and Swearinger, but I am iffy on whether this team can utilize them like top draft picks should be utilized. Look, you drafted them in the highest tier of the draft, so USE THEM! Please.

This is a great pick! Mongo is first round talent. Yea he admitted taking off plays and games, but he is very honest and kinda a different personality. You can't blame him taking off games against towson and Idaho, he had a bad knee injury and why get hurt in a meaningless game.

In big games he showed up big time! 2 sacks against bama one in OT that sealed te game in 2011

2 sacks against south Carolina this year

Sack this year against bama

Sack in the sec champion game against Georgia

In the peach bowl this year, he crawled on the ground to sack taj Boyd. On a 3rd down that shouldve won the game if Eric Reid wouldn't have taken another bad angle on the 4th down.

Needless to say he is very emotional and determined when he is playing.

Hes a very high character guy, he is big into sonic the hedgehog because that was his brothers favorite game that passed away

OK, but I'm still trying to figure out what this guy did or even said that's so controversial ? He's a bit of a joker with an off-of-the-wall sense of humor, but beyond that what's the problem ?

His physical makeup reminds me of Mario. Seems to have more fire based on the videos I've seen though.

I think the biggest difference between now & 2006, is that we are positioned to do something special... win a championship.

Ballers want to be part of that. A big part. If he's a baller, we'll find out. If not... we'll find that out as well.

What I like about this draft, so far, is that we don't need Montgomery to be a baller. We need either Montgomery, Mercilus, Trevardo, Brahman, or Brooks to be a baller. & they'll all get their chance.

Definitely seeing us sign a vet but he's too pricey.

This worries me when one of your coaches goes out of his way to put you on blast to the NFL. Hopefully he matures.

Default Re: LSU coach comments on Sam....

Well, Montgomery is OUR guy now. So I'm going to wait and see, but I have a feeling this will be nothing in the grand scheme of things.

Mario Williams and David Carr were workout and training camp warriors, and when it came to Sundays they were not exactly all that dominating of their opponents.

I have seen Montgomery's highlights, and he has a high motor. If THAT is taking plays off, then I'll take his brand of effort.

He already has.

He missed a workout. The strength coach put that up. And then he didn't miss any workouts from then on.

I've read stuff on this kid both good and bad, so for the time being I'm just going to be watchful of him. My misgivings about him don't seem to go away though. Maybe the other players and our coaches can turn him away from the Dark Side.
