Summary

As a rookie in 2019, David Montgomery arrived on an open depth chart in terms of carries for a starter workload. However, Montgomery's lack of overall burst and speed would prove limiting as well as one of the weaker run-blocking offensive lines in the NFL. Montgomery collected a hearty 267 touches and saw the fourth-most carries inside the five-yard-line among running backs, but converted only five of those attempts into scores, easily the fewest of the top-volume goal line backs in the NFL. Montgomery also was squeezed in the passing game by Tarik Cohen by a dominant 104-to-34 target advantage. To unlock significant upside, Montgomery will need to reverse the course either at the goal line or in the passing game in 2020. (April 28)
