Expectations high for rookie Montgomery

montgomery_050619 analyst Chad Reuter is predicting that Bears third-round pick David Montgomery will be one of two running backs selected to the NFL All-Rookie Team in 2019.

The other 10 starters on Reuter's All-Rookie offense were chosen in the first two rounds of the draft. The Bears traded up 14 spots to pick Montgomery at No. 73. Montgomery was the fourth running back taken in the draft, following Josh Jacobs at No. 24 by the Raiders, Miles Sanders at No. 53 by the Eagles and Darrell Henderson at No. 70 by the Rams.

Reuter predicts that Jacobs, who was chosen by the Raiders with a pick they acquired from the Bears in the Khalil Mack trade, will join Montgomery on the All-Rookie Team. Other projected selections include Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel, Patriots receiver N'Keal Harry and Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson.
