Chicago Bears: David Montgomery is Leading Rusher Among Rookies
Montgomery was actually Chicago’s top draft pick this year, even if they didn’t get him until the 3rd round. With Jordan Howard being traded to the Eagles, the opportunity is there for Montgomery to become the starter.
We still haven’t seen enough from Mitchell Trubisky to know that he can survive without a good running game, so Montgomery should have no problem getting carries. He was also a vastly underrated running back while at Iowa State. If he stays healthy, he’s someone who can have a big rookie season for the Bears.
