Jerry Montgomery | DT | Iowa | Big Ten Conference
Height Weight 40 Grade
6'2½ 300 5.21 3.29
Fourth-year player that started more than 30 games since he was a redshirt sophomore. Totaled 26/5.5/2 last year after 48/11/2 as a junior and 47/4/1 during his sophomore campaign.

Wide bodied lineman that could fit as a quick-tackle in a four-three scheme. Plays with forward lean, stays low to the ground and gets leverage on opponents. Quick off the snap, moves well laterally and gets to the flanks making plays against the ballcarrier. Uses his hands to keep opponents off him, holds his ground and causes disruptions in the offensive backfield when focused. Good athlete for his size and can play off the line of scrimmage in pass coverage. Not strong, handled at the point of attack and does not always work to finish the play. Very disappointing senior campaign and much more was expected of him. Went from a potential middle round choice to a non-entity. Free Agent.
