2019 NFL Draft Prospect: David Montgomery

Following a dominant performance against Washington State in the Alamo Bowl, David Montgomery has officially declared for the 2019 NFL Draft. The 5-foot-11, 213-pound running back leaves Iowa State with the sixth-most yards rushing in school history. In a draft class without a clear-cut RB1, does Montgomery belong in that discussion?


A three-star recruit from Cincinnati, OH, Montgomery received just a handful of offers despite rushing for 6,666 yards and 91 touchdowns as a dual-threat QB/RB. As a true freshman in 2016, he led Iowa State in yards rushing (563), splitting production with RB Mike Warren and QB Joel Lanning. His stats might look unimpressive at first glance, but Montgomery’s 0.41 First-Year Workhorse Score easily surpasses the 0.25 threshold found to be an important factor in predicting future success. He also showed himself to be an adequate receiver with 13 receptions.
