No penalties and keep his head in the game and he will do fine.
I wonder will they switch the better players to his side to create a possible mismatch. What's Terrons weaknesses and strengths?

No one knows his weaknesses or strengths except our coaches, so its a gamble for Carolina.

Analysis

Strengths

Armstead is a fantastic athlete for the position. He is light on his feet in pass protection, and nimble when on the move. Agile, moves well in space, shows the quickness to get to the second level and cut off linebackers. Has been asked to pull all the way across the line and has shown effectiveness in doing so. Bends and redirects well. Extends his arms to keep pass rushers at bay. Not overwhelmed by defensive twists and stunts. Does a good job of selling play fakes, draws, and screens. Weaknesses

Needs to improve lower body strength. Can get bull rushed back. Faced sub-par competition. Needs to speed up hands, and be more consistent with his aiming point. Gets to the second level quickly, but will struggle to locate his target, gets lost in space. Will lunge at defenders with his head down in the run game. NFL Comparison

Duane Brown Bottom Line

Armstead has been a fast riser in the postseason process. He's got an intriguing athletic skill set. Despite facing sub-par competition in season, he's shown the ability to be a good pass protector, and contribute as a run blocker. He can likely stay outside, although some teams might see him as a guard. He could find himself as a Day 2 pick before all is said and done.

One thing I learned from drinking. You should always go Christmas caroling with a group. Oh, and always in mid-December.

Well he should have been going against our 1's in practice so he should be OK.

I understand the move. But, Brown is less of the problem and more of a message to the whole team.

It wouldn't surprise me to see Eric on special teams on Sunday. This guy was actually pretty decent during his short stint in Dallas but yes he could be there for depth.

But I gotta think Payton would never make this move unless he thought the young man was ready.

With 2 game starts in 6 years, and the way his carer has played out.. Ill bet he gets a lot of Special Teams play, and picks up a snap or two

Re: Terron Armstead To Start at LT

Hey I don't think they would put him out there if not ready. I am sure he has been getting reps against Gallette and Jordan, two pretty good pass rushers. He would have to be performing pretty well against them for Payton to put him in.

It's not like a lot of years where you don't have a decent defense to rate out and grade out offensive players. This is the first year in awhile where our scheme and talent would allow you to know if a new offensive lineman can tow the rope.
