ALABAMA A&M LB MONTAY ROVER
Exclusive one-on-one with Montay Rover.
Montay Rover began his collegiate career at Eastern Arizona Community College and moved on to Scottsdale Community College in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was here he played a second year of junior college football as a linebacker, graduating with an Associate’s in General Studies. From Scottsdale Community College Montay Rover continued on to play college football at Alabama A&M University (AAMU) in Huntsville, Alabama where he remains today. Initially the Alabama A&M University defensive coordinator tried Montay as a defensive tackle. The coordinator liked the way he got off the ball and his quickness on the line, so he remained as defensive tackle throughout his first year at AAMU. During his second year at AAMU Montay Rover was moved to a linebacker position where he proved equally successful. As of today Montay hopes his long journey through football continues on to the professional level as he continues to train for his chance in the National Football League. In 2012 Rover finished second on the team with 56 tackles and added five tackles for loss.
In Their Own Words
What might NFL scouts miss about one of your better qualities?
"I would really have to say my size gets really under looked. I guess they didn't think I was as strong as I was until they pot me on the line and they say I was holding my own. Taking on two guards. It would probably be my strength."
Do you like to the pattern you game of any players in the National Football League?
" James Harrison. That's how I like to play the game. It's about intimidation."
What is the aspect of your game NFL scouts will walk away mightily pleased about?
"I feel like I'm quick off the ball. I've just got a 'get off' thats so crazy. That why I kept going back to d-line because my coach liked the way I came of the ball."
College2Pro Draft Analysis
Physical and makes big hits. Good hustler and competitor. Adequate speed and strength. Tough. Quick off the ball. Is a pass rusher or pass rush linebacker whom may be limited in pass coverage and not beefy enough to be a down defensive end. Doesn't fit every system, but worth a workout, and if he does well, should be in an NFL training camp.
