Junior Running Back David Montgomery runs a pass at the Alamo Bowl game on Dec. 28. The Cyclones fell to the Cougars 28-26.

Former Cyclone star running back David Montgomery will get his chance in the NFL after being selected by the Chicago Bears in the third round.

Montgomery is the first running back from Iowa State to be picked in the NFL Draft since Troy Davis was drafted in the third round by the New Orleans Saints in 1997. 

In three years with the Cyclones, Montgomery ran for 2,925 yards on 624 carries, averaging 4.7 yards per attempt and scoring 26 rushing touchdowns. Montgomery broke 1,000 yards on the ground in each of his final two seasons with Iowa State.
