Terron Armstead, a 306-pound tackle, runs a jaw-dropping 40 | ProFootballTalk

I know the 40 yard dash is incredibly overrated amongst analysts and the like, but I haven't heard anything about this guy until now. Potential later round pick? What do you guys think? I mean, it is crazy that a 300 pound offensive lineman ran practically the same 40 as our own Mark Ingram. We do have an uncanny ability to turn later round offensive linemen into Pro Bowlers. Is he just a Combine work out warrior?

Re: Terron Armstead

Straight-line speed in shorts and a T-shirt from a track start is highly over-rated.

BTW: Ingram and Ivory both ran a low of 4.47 at their pro-days.

Re: Terron Armstead

Armstead ran his 40-yard dash in an unofficial time of 4.65 seconds, which is stunningly fast for a 306-pound offensive tackle

yep he has been thrown around in the big board section more than once. there are some really interesting OT in this year draft in the middle rounds that are worth the pick using the "UPSIDE" factor. he is one of them

Lane Johnson Oklahoma
6-6 303
Bench 28
arm 35.28

Terron Armstead Arkansas-Pinebluff
6-5 306
Bench 31
arm 34.08

Luke Marquardt Azusa Pacific
6-8 315
Bench 31
arm 34.48

David Quessenberry San Jose State
6-5 302
Bench 25
arm 34.38

Re: Terron Armstead

I was just meaning Ingram's 4.68 at the combine. But like I said, 40 times are greatly overrated by analysts. We're gonna lose Bushrod and Charles Brown isn't gonna amount to anything... Hell, even Strief is inconsistent at best. Just thought this guy might be an interesting prospect.

Agreed, I'm sure some eyebrows were raised and a few interview lists were adjusted.

Re: Terron Armstead

He could be a monster in the screen game blocking if that track speed translated into game speed.

That's what I was thinking... Imagine a screen pass to Pierre with Grubbs pulling outside to help block the DE and this cat Armstead making blocks at the second level! I know, I'm getting sucked into pre-draft hype... But damn it, I'm just excited about the offseason. I don't even know if he's capable of playing LT so I'm going to shut up LOL.

Re: Terron Armstead

the thing about him is he needs work but the athletic ability is there.

Armstead is a freakish all-around athlete who was also an outstanding shot putter in college, but the question, of course, is whether he can translate that athleticism to playing at the NFL level. And on that score, the early indications are good: Although he didn’t play against high-quality competition at Arkansas Pine-Bluff, he was a good college player who was so impressive at the East-West Shrine Game that he got a late invitation to the Senior Bowl.
