Ourlads' Profile:

2013 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about SAM MONTGOMERY: LSU, 6032 262 4.81. Junior entry. Two-and-a-half year starter with long arms and solid production with 8 sacks and 13 tackles for loss in 2012. The past two years he collected 17 sacks and 26 tackles for loss. Plays in a 3-man rotation with Barkevious Mingo and Lavar Edwards. Plays low and with leverage. Walks a tackle back to the quarterback. Contains the edge of the defense. Rushes the passer with good hand and foot coordination. A good effort player who hustles and runs to the ball, taking the proper pursuit angles. Excellent lateral quickness. Relentless competitor who causes hurries and pressure even when he doesn’t get a sack. He finishes the play. Struggled to separate from Luke Joeckel. He must win on the first move or he gets tied up on the blocker. Needs to combine two moves to rush top level blockers effectively. Allergic to the weight room, proven again by a pulled pectoral muscle and didn’t lift at the Combine. Talent and on the field production is there, but the ability to prepare as a pro is questionable. Inconsistencies must be cleaned up. 2012 stats: 37 T, 13 TFL, 8 sacks, 2 BB, 2 FF, 1 FR. Edge speed:left 2.12, right 2.09. OSR:16/ 23. Medical exclusion at Combine during drills - left pectoral injury. Second/third round. (A-33 7/8, H-9 1/4, BP-22, 10-1.65).
