When the Green Bay Packers drafted Ty Montgomery with their third-round selection in this year’s draft, the pick initially confused fans. The Packers had, again, bypassed another inside linebacker. Instead they drafted a player who played a position that was already a strength for the Packers.

The more fans started to read about and watch film on Montgomery, that feeling started to change from anger and confusion to excitement.

Montgomery brings a dynamic element to a Packers offense that was already one of the best in the league. Adding Montgomery to the Packers offense not only gives Aaron Rodgers another receiving threat, it makes the Packers even more dangerous and difficult for opposing defenses to defend.

Montgomery will be able to help the Packers in various ways. The Packers would like to mold Montgomery into their primary return guy and he will flourish in that role. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t see Montgomery getting snaps with the offense.

Montgomery did miss the Packers OTAs, but he was able to get some practice time in at minicamp. By all accounts, Montgomery was impressive during minicamp and looked ready for training camp. The Packers will have a battle for the fourth wide receiver spot between Montgomery, Jeff Janis, and Jared Abbrederis.

There is no question Montgomery will make the team, but how much playing time he gets will depend on how well he does with the upcoming training camp. How quickly he is able to develop a chemistry with Rodgers and make plays in training camp and preseason will determine how much confidence the Packers have to insert him into the offense right away.
