He may never start for us but use the very last pick we have on him to remind the world. Like his father, he isn't matching up to the measurable qualities like arm strength. Walsh would have done it. It is our duty.
I am from Montana and saw him play during practice and scrimmage games while he was with the Montana Grizzlys. I can tell you that Nate Montana is HORRIBLE! I do not want him on this team. He is not 1/50th as good as his dad. Plus he has off field issues. Dui, drinking/partying. IMHO I wouldn't pick him up even if we got a $million dollar CAP credit. There are reasons why he was on 3 different college teams in 3 years.
Dad might have been able to bail him out of a few alcohol-related incidents and "helped" him become the starter at a few small schools, but as with Coach Lad, I don't think the Montana name will carry much weight with the 49ers unless he's actually good. Fret not, for if/when their NFL dreams are dashed, Nate and Nick will lead very productive lives as trust-fund progeny.
