Chicago Bears ‘in love’ with rookie RB David Montgomery

David Montgomery

The Chicago Bears made a somewhat surprising decision to trade Jordan Howard over the offseason, but they appear to be in a good place without him.

The Bears drafted former Iowa State running back David Montgomery in the third round, trading up to select him No. 73 overall. They praised him during minicamp and are apparently even more excited than that.

Yahoo NFL reporter Terez A. Paylor spent some time at Bears training camp and shared notes about his observations via Twitter Tuesday. One such note was that the Bears are “in love” with Montgomery.

Montgomery sounds like he will have a big role in the Bears’ offense this year and be a threat along with Tarik Cohen. Mike Davis, whom the team signed from Seattle, may be behind Montgomery when it comes to playing time.

In three seasons at Iowa State, Montgomery scored 26 touchdowns and piled up 3,507 yards from scrimmage. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry and 8.2 yards per reception during his college career.
