Iowa State has been blessed with consistency at the running back position for the past three seasons. Ever since David Montgomery arrived in 2016, the running back position has been one of the Cyclones' biggest strengths. Despite three different coaches at the position group in four years, Montgomery kept the starting mantle and grew into one of the best players in Iowa State's football history.

Fall camp is in full swing with the start of the college football season three weekends away. The Cyclones had their first full week of fall camp, and from it came plenty of storylines that could have an impact on the team's ceiling. From a newcomer making a case for playing time at safety to the battle for the final starting position at linebacker, these are some of the standout moments from the week that was in Bergstrom.

Iowa State football has⁠—on paper⁠—one of the best defenses in the Big 12 lined up for the 2019 season. Eight of last year’s 11 regular starters are returning, with the defensive line of JaQuan Bailey, Jamahl Johnson, Enyi Uwazurike and Ray Lima intact.
