Ty Montgomery is bulking up for the upcoming season

  • The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has reported that Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery has bulked up to 220 pounds. Montgomery was asked to trim weight when he was playing wide receiver.
  • In 2016 playing both running back and wide receiver Montgomery earned a 74.3 overall grade. As a running back exclusively this would have earned him the 18th highest grade out of 62 eligible.
  • His 2016 highlight as a runner came in Week 15, where he earned the second highest grade among running backs for the week at 83.6. During that game, he forced seven missed tackles on just 16 carries and racked up 160 yards after contact.
  • From Week 7 through the postseason, when he was exclusively playing running back, Montgomery was PFF’s most elusive back producing an elusive rating of 97.6. He forced 30 total missed tackles on 141 touches while churning out 4.59 yards after contact per attempt.

    I have no doubts that Montgomery can make the transition to RB, I just doubt that he can be a true workhorse. But I can see him doing very well in a 3rd down back role.

    Montgomery is 6′ tall at or over 220# runs 4.51 40 and 1.51 ten yard.
    Look at the top 10 backs in the NFL last year. He is bigger then most, same size as a cpl and close to the rest.
    Have you saw any of the OTA pictures of Montgomery?
    He has rebuild his body for playing RB.
    Then look at how many carries any of the backs the Packers have bass the last 5 or 6 years have actually averaged per game.
    It’s not twentyfive or thirty carries, it’s more like 10 to 18.
    And another thing to look at he is not going to get caught from behind like Lacy did.
