Nugget on Armstead
Love the pick. Rare breed. Those who wanted defense can relax. Plenty of talent available


. 04/21/13 - ROB RANG'S 2013 NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH: Terron Armstead, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, 6-5, 306, 4.65 ... The dazzling straight-line speed Armstead demonstrated at the combine caught the public by surprise but not scouts who saw him dominate competition at the East-West Shrine Game and impress as a late injury replacement at the Senior Bowl, as well. Unlike many small school prospects who simply latch on with whatever program will give them an opportunity, Armstead was recruited by a number of big schools, opting to play with Golden Lions because they were the only team willing to let him compete in track, as well as football. Highly intelligent, a remarkable athlete and having demonstrated the ability to raise his level of play against elite competition, Armstead could earn a shockingly high draft selection.

I can't believe he fell... but I'm thrilled that he did!

Re: Nugget on Armstead
There's one of our future OT's. I am still concerned about LT this year though.

Re: Nugget on Armstead
The game tape during the Nfl draft presentation on this guy was crazy he pulled a Michael Oher blind side kick out block taking a de to the cheerleaders lol , all of his clips weren't of him barely holding up but of him destroying the defender ... This years jimmy graham , start em now !

Re: Nugget on Armstead
I know Mayock really liked him. He went as far to say that he has the potential to be one of the best tackles in this draft. That says a lot considering how many have gone in the first few rounds. This is a really good pick.

Re: Nugget on Armstead
This sounds like a very good pick. Pretty awesome speed and physique, if he can't start on the OL, then he might be a nice blocking specialist going into the game as tackle-eligible like Strief used to. Could be asset on those outside sweeps and little screen passes to Sproles. Nice!

Re: Nugget on Armstead
And also not to mention a guy with this size/height/speed combo could come in handy on special teams.

Re: Nugget on Armstead
now i can understand the pick and risks involved him. he was not my first pick a OT but it still made sense. the upside is there and we have a good track record with developing OL players like him

SP needs whoever is doing the personnel choices on offense to make the defense picks as well. cause right now i am @#$#$#@ with our DC.
