Montgomery is a beast, but is he versatile enough to play SOLB? He'd be great if we didn't have Ware but I don't think he's cable of playing the run as well as we would need him too. Sacks aren't everything. Not that I don't like Montgomery, guess I'm just objecting the position taken.
And Holmes probably isn't strong enough to start in the NFL right now. Put him in front of a 330 lb beast and he's gonna get thrown around. See the Utah game this year for evidence.
