"[Jones, Bergman and Mead] come in with some prior learning and some prior experiences in a position because they've been a good player for a long time as a kid, but they're just traits when they get here that can be applied to any area," Montgomery told media on Thursday.
"So if I talk Lachie specifically, I've got no doubt that with some experience, some education and some exposure, I think Lachie Jones could make it in any area.
"I've got a keen eye on him for the midfield. I think he'll get his first start as a defender just because that's probably a bit fairer on him but like I said about those other young guys; why put a ceiling on these guys who have got exceptional talent?"
Taking into account Montgomery's words, the club looks to be searching through its list for the next wave of household-name Power midfielders.
"Apart from those obvious guys that everyone loves to talk about, me included, in Xavier (Duursma), Connor (Rozee) and 'Buttsy' (Zak Butters), there's some young talent that hasn't had the looks that perhaps they've deserved," Montgomery added.
"It's really exciting with the stocks. We've got to make sure they're ready. We don't want to displace any of the older players who have got all the runs on the board just for the sake of it but we think there is some merit in improving and in growing that group and making sure we can spread some load."
Port Adelaide are set to clash with Fremantle next month before playing against Adelaide at Richmond Oval for their AAMI Community Series match in early March.
The Power will then turn their attention to Round 1, where they will look to open their account for 2022 against Brisbane on Saturday, March 19 at the Gabba.
