Thoughts on Ty Montgomery

Ty Montgomery

WR/KR

Stanford

Senior

6’2 215

Big strong receiver, ability to make defenders miss after the catch, great top end speed and explosion, turns short catches into big games, used on jet and fly sweeps to get in space, a playmaker with the ball in his hands, struggles to get open, many catches came on smoke screens or hitches against soft coverage, not a guy who can consistently get separation, needs to improve his footwork getting into and out of the breaks in his routes, can struggle to make catches in traffic, moved inside and out, came into the backfield and put in motion often, not a great blocker due to a lack of effort and poor anticipation, does not track the ball in the air aggressively, noticeably lacks polish as a receiver, electric returner, finds the hole and gets through the hole quickly, reminiscent of Golden Tate in his YAC ability, extremely quick but also has the strength to power through smaller defenders and is electric in the open field, shows some recognition of openings in zone coverage but needs to continue to improve in this aspect, takes time to get open, showed good chemistry with Hogan breaking off routes and coming back to the ball, occasionally looks like a running back playing receiver which can be a good and a bad thing, needs to keep balance throughout his breaks.

NFL Comparison: Somewhere between Golden Tate and Jonathan Baldwin

Outlook: Very naturally talented player who needs a ton of development as a receiver, can be used as a chess piece and a return man immediately, won’t contribute as a true outside receiver for multiple years.

Draft Projection: Mid-First Round – Early Second Round

Top 4 QB Prospect Comparison

There are 9 areas I like to look at while breaking down a Quarterback, Accuracy, Vision/Ability to read the defense, Arm Strength, Poise, Pocket Presence, Athleticism, Throwing Mechanics, Anticipation, and Size.  I will be comparing each Quarterback in these areas.

The four consensus best Quarterbacks are as follows, Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel, and Derek Carr.

Each area a Quarterback is the best he is awarded 4 points, 3 for second, 2 for third, and 1 for fourth.

 

1.  Accuracy

1. Bridgewater

2. Manziel

3. Carr

4. Bortles

 

2.  Vision

1. Bridgewater

2. Carr

3. Manziel

4. Bortles

 

3. Arm Strength

Overall:

2. Blake Bortles                 22

3. Derek Carr                      21

4. Johnny Manziel           20

 

Keep in mind that this is not a real formula, more of a fun experiment, but this came very close to how I really have the Quarterbacks ranked.
