Terron Armstead will likely be the Saints left tackle this season

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; A chip block here and there from our TE's and RB's will make whoever plays on the edge look better. Just expect slower route development....and more pics......

Truth is, its just pure speculation at the moment, we will have a better idea on how he will look when preseason comes around, if he will start or not will depend on what he can do when it matters - gameday!

Um...that wasn't even an article. I could write something like that!

Martez Wilson will start at OLB because he's really good.

Lot of that going around. Wonder if they're making more than we are...

Its most likelythat he'll play back-up for a season. He's awfully raw. This isn't like Evans playing guard from day one, or Nicks starting by week 8.

We'll bring him along slowly like we did with Stinchcomb, Strief, Bushrod and Brown.
This would be conventional wisdom, but unfortunately there is nothing conventional about the Saints' left tackle situation this year. If Armstead outperforms the others (which shouldn't be hard) then I expect he'll get the job. I just don't see anybody on the roster who the team would really want him to sit behind and learn from.

It could be sloppy at first, but I think he'll develop pretty quickly.

I'd feel better if Kromer were still around.

Re: Terron Armstead will likely be the Saints left tackle this season

Here's why Payton doesn't like Charles Brown - he's in the training room waaaaaay too much; and that affects the chemistry, and yes, rhythm of an offensive line...

And as good as Brees has been, it all starts up front with the great offensive line play we've enjoyed since Payton took over...

Armstead will be the starting left tackle unless he can't read the playbook...

Look forward to seeing Armstead run downfield plowing the lanes for PT on Screens and on Ingram for Stretch Plays; maybe see a decapitation when Sproiles is 12 yards downfield and reverses field for additional gain...

Perhaps. He's certainly the most athletic lineman we've drafted in a very long time. He's more raw than the average rookie LT. Thats probably why he was still there in the 3rd.

So unless he develops his game at blazing speed he'll need some time. Of course, judging from what we saw at the combine blazing speed is no problem for Terron.
