Way to early 2015 draft crush ... Ty Montgomery

I realize it's only been a few weeks since the 2014 draft. I understand that voluntary work outs have only just started, and that there is a lot of time between now and the actual start of the 2014 season. I even know how much things can change in a year, and that prospect rankings for the 2015 draft are completely meaningless right now. For the purposes of this post, none of that concerns me. Finding the next great Steelers WR does.

I've never checked out draft prospects this far in advance. I was reading up on some post draft news, and by accident got turned on to Montgomery. Ty Montgomery is a 6'2" 215 lb WR from Stanford. In 2013, he caught 61 passes for 958 yards, and 10 TD's. He also rushed for 159 yards, and 2 TD's. As a kick returner, Montgomery returned 36 kicks, for 1091 yards, 2 TD's, with an average return of 30.3 yards. Play maker.

The highlight of Montgomery's 2013 season, was against Cal.

This game was a great victory for the Cardinal while making history at the same time. Wide receiver, Ty Montgomery, scored five touchdowns, Tying former Stanford running back Darrin Nelson in 1981. Probably one of the most impressive parts of this accomplishment was not that he scored all 5 touchdowns in one half, but that his first four touches on the ball converted to four touchdowns. Montgomery finished out the day with 5 catches and 2 rushes combining for 191 yards and 5 touchdowns – all within the first half.

Watch for yourself: Ty Montgomery vs Cal

I didn't become a Ty Montgomery fan because he scored 5 TD's in one half of football. I'm a fan, because he displays an impressive skill set for the WR position. Montgomery is a dynamic receiver, with size, speed, physicality, and the athleticism to make plays in space. He reminds me of Odell Beckham Jr in a bigger body. If Montgomery builds on his 2013 season, I think he will be a payer that is very high on Kevin Colbert radar. He's definitely a player I will be paying attention to during the 2014 college football season.

You should never from an opinion about a player based on a highlight film, but feel free to do it anyhow!
