We’re into the heart of bowl season, with many games beginning to feature marquee matchups. This means that there’s a lot of potential NFL prospects to take a look at in these games. Here’s a preview of the December 30th slate which features some potential first rounders.
Iowa State vs Memphis
The Liberty Bowl looks to be one of the most underrated bowl games of the season, and I’m pretty excited for it. It has the second highest over under of any bowl game and boasts plenty of offensive skill talent.
Iowa State has two intriguing prospects in running back David Montgomery and wide receiver Allen Lazard. Montgomery has been a favorite of Pro Football Focus all season and set their record for missed tackles forced in a season with 104. Typically you tend to think of smaller, lighter players as the ones who are the most agile but that’s not the case with Montgomery. He’s a physical back at 5’11”, 219 pounds, and was also eighth in the nation with 828 yards after contact. He’s also a more than capable receiver out of the backfield, catching 35 passes this season. I currently have Montgomery as my overall RB6 and the RB1 for the class of 2019.
Lazard is the highest ranked recruit to ever attend Iowa State, and he’s certainly lived up to the billing for them. He’s 6’5”, 222 pounds and moves tremendously well for a player of his size. Lazard has had a dominator rating of at least .31 for each of the last three seasons, and should go down as one of the best receivers in Iowa State history. I like Lazard a lot and currently have him as my overall devy WR21 and WR12 for this class.
