Default Re: 2013 NFL Draft Discussion

LSU DE Sam Montgomery said some really, really stupid things at the combine today, he said at LSU he took entire games off, and he said he would bet hundreds of dollars with teammate Barkevious Mingo.

Also, apparently Les Miles and the LSU coaching staff have been completely trashing Montgomery to NFL teams and telling them to stay away from him

Quote:
Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o wasn’t the only high-profile college star creating as many questions as he answered Saturday.

LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery detailed hundreds of dollars worth of bets with teammate Barkevious Mingo while they were in college, and a $5,000 bet on which one is drafted higher (which he’s almost certainly going to lose).

But the thing NFL teams will want to know about was his admission that he took plays and games off while at LSU.

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

“Of course, this is a new league, the NFL and there are no small teams, small divisions, it is all Alabamas and LSUs every week. It’s definitely something I have to get adjusted to, but I’m sure with the right coaching I will be fine.”

Asked if NFL teams might be concerned about his ability to flip the switch from not trying all the time, Montgomery said he has matured in the months since he left LSU.

“When you are a young, you do things as a boy, but when you grow, you do things as a man,” he said. “From a maturing standpoint, and from everything going into this league that I have learned so far, I was a boy in college, and now that I am going

into the league, I’ve become a man.”

Montgomery said he and Mingo (who many expect to be a top-10 pick, while Montgomery is projected as a late-first) had a $500 bet on who had more sacks in the final game, $1,000 on season sacks along with the big wager on draft status.

“Here’s the thing: Hard work, and betting like that, pushes greatness,” Montgomery said. “That’s actually motivating me and Mingo. It’s not about the money, it’s about pushing us, at the combine and the drills in between. That’s what is pushing us to be the best.

“It’s always been competitive for me and Mingo and it makes us better in the end. He’s a fast defensive end, I’m more physical. We have to switch over in those realms, so putting big stakes on it makes us more dominant players in the end.”

Setting aside the friendly bets, teams are going to wonder what they have to do to motivate Montgomery once they’re the ones paying him.

If anyone saw the comebine today, Jonathan Cooper the guard looked like the best short to mid area athlete (foot quickness, fluidity, acceleration/burst from a 10 yard area) that I've ever seen from an OL'men since I've been watching it.

He's an special prospect, IMO.

It's true for like 95% of guys. Montgomery's just the only one dumb enough to admit it.

I was just jumping on to ask did you see them dudes burn the track today.

Fast ass WRs in this class.

Geno Smith ran a good time but I look at that OT time and his? I chuckle.

Gena is in between Cam & Kaps speed, which is more than I was expecting.

The way he ran and the way he's throwing the ball during these drills can do nothing but help his cause to go top 10.

Auburn RB Onterio McCalebb just ran an "unofficial" 4.21 forty yard dash.

If it holds up as the official time, then his 4.21 would be the new fastest 40 in combine history.

Doesn't "unofficial" just mean he did it on the side with people hand timing with stop watches?

I dont think an unofficial time can turn into an official time...its just supposedly what he did while warming up right?

I know it's not the fastest times of the day, but Knile Davis ran a 4.30 and 4.31 40, which is pretty damn impressive for a 230 pound back.

Bold statement:

Kenny Vaccaro deserves to be a top 5 pick in the draft.

Mark Barron went 7th last year and I firmly believe Vaccaro is a superior prospect.

Luke Joeckel's combine was so bad he probably won't be a top-5 pick now

Lane Johnson, tackle from OU, OWNED the combine

Luke Joeckle did nothing to make one say he "probably won't be a top-5 pick now"

27 reps on the bench
Showed great feet and movement skills in drills

40 yard dash times mean almost nothing for left tackles.
