LSU defensive linemen bet $5,000 on NFL Draft's No. 1 pick
Former LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery said at the NFL Combine that he went pro to help support his family. He may also be doing it help pay off his future bets. Montgomery and fellow LSU end Barkevious Mingo have a $5,000 bet to see who gets taken first in the 2013 NFL Draft. For the Tigers duo, it's just the latest bet, Montgomery said at the combine on Saturday. "We had three bets going on. We had one for the highest (amount) of sacks for $1,000. I won that," Montgomery said. "We had one for $500 for the most sacks in the last game. I won that. Now we're fighting (to see) who goes highest in the draft. "That amount of money is pretty big, so I have to come through with this one."
