Was asked about Armanti in his presser today and said he has seen great improvement in Armanti from the tape he had on him last year to the tapes they have on him this year and just seeing him in practice. Also, said something about wanting to see him develop more as a WR, but they like what he's doing...

Overall, sounded optimistic about Armanti and what he's doing right now. He said he really liked what he's doing in the PR game but then what was awkward is he brought up Brandon Hogan in this response without being prompted...

He said something along the lines of "and the thing is, when Brandon Hogan gets back, we could put him in there at punt returner. He has a history of returning punts and we feel he could be really good at it, so that would give us two different types of returners there. We could switch them out and alternate them and give each of them chances. We really like what both of them could do."

That isn't verbatim, but along those lines. Sounded really positive about Armanti but then it sounded like Hogan was being viewed as a potential successor at PR.

He also said Hogan will start practicing a week from now and they'll have 3 weeks to make a decision on him.

Hogan just needs to keep eating his vitamins and saying his prayers.

Hogan was a WR, before he converted to CB.

wouldn't it be great if Hogan turned out to be our number 2 corner, so we could draft a DT or LB

whenever he gets some blocking i think he'll start breaking out

as for WR, Rivera said the opportunities aren't there since they aren't running 4 WR sets. I'd like to see them try some of the wildcat with him along with DWill. Or maybe run a reverse with him sometime. give him a chance out there

You guys know I could care less about the Appalachian State Mountaineers, but to say he hasn't done well on punt returns this year would be, well, a fallacy.

Our return protection this season has been far from great, and Armanti has done a nice job each and every time he gets a shot of making something out of nothing. More importantly, he hasn't made any bone headed decisions. He knows when to let it go int the endzone, he knows when to fair catch, and he knows when to return. Just to top if off, he hasn't muffed any either.

I'd like to see Armanti start getting more involved in the offense. We've been running some Wildcat, I'd like to use his experience as a QB in that package to provide another threat. Even if we only throw it with him once, I'd like to make them respect that possibility.

If Hogan turns out to be that good, it would just be a bonus as I think Munny and Butler are doing great right now and each have a bright future with us.

I'm excited about what Hogan can bring to our team though.

Yeah, I posted in the thread about him that we should design plays to get the ball in his hands, whether it be the wildcat with Cam and line him up in the backfield with him, a reverse/pass option, or a WR screen for him.
