Concerns

A few things stand out as issues for Ty Montgomery making the transition to the next level. Often times he has concentration issues. This leads to far too many dropped passes. He holds onto mistakes and lets them bother him for the rest of the game. It only leads to his focus being elsewhere. Montgomery is limited in route running. He has to work on his hands and his focus at the next level. His hands are the second largest in this class behind Deandre Smelter. He should be able to pluck the ball out of the air with ease.

Dennis Digs Deeper

Ty Montgomery is built like a running back. At 6 feet and 221 pounds, he is jacked. He moves like a running back with the ball in his hands. He will have the ability to be lined up all over the field. He is guy you will want to get the ball to. Montgomery is a complementary piece at the next level and will be most successful opposite a number one wide receiver.

Kyle’s Instant Analysis

Ty Montgomery is an interesting prospect. He has immense talent with the ball in his hands but seems to have issues getting the ball in said hands. He is a physical freak with the potential to score on any play. Concentration issues may be something that can be fixed as Montgomery makes the transition at the next level. He will need to work on securing the ball before making his move up the field. His athleticism is impressive and he doesn’t need to run before he finishes the catch. He will still be able to shake defenders.
