By not picking Alex Okafor, there's a tear in Tim's beer.
With the 95th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, your Houston Texans select Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU. There are some players who scream "Houston Texans," hard workers who #battlefight and all those other words used for gritty 'round these parts. I'm somewhat shocked by this selection because that's not at all Montgomery's profile. From WalterFootball.com:
Not fast or explosive around the edge
Reputation for a poor work ethic
As for strengths, he's kind of a poor man's Datone Jones. Powerful, holds the edge, experienced. Our friends at MileHighReport mentioned some much more unkindly things about him, including betting and taking games off. Yet, MHR paints a positive picture. The NFL.com comps of Andre Carter and Lawrence Jackson fail to create enthusiasm.
Frankly, I was a bit unprepared for Montgomery as he's not at all a classic Texans kind of player. But the pick is done, and now's the time to cheer for him. Meet your newest Texan, Sam Montgomery.
