Mini-Camp Battles

In the sixth round of the 2005 draft the Packers choose rookie Mike Montgomery, a defensive linemen, who stands at 6-5 and weighs 273 pounds. Montgomery has a very good motor and would quite possibly be the starter at left end when the season begins.

Montgomery has a good amount of potential to become a great outside pass rusher since he is not too consistent at getting low when he plays inside the line. The job at LE is not wide open for the taking. Aaron Kampman is penciled as the starter for now. Even if Montgomery does not earn a starting role, expect there to be a good mix of both Kampman and Montgomery by mid-season.
