Pejorative Miscreant

Terron Armstead - Offensive Lineman

22 posts in this topic

I think he's more likely to go in the second. Nevertheless, he has a lot of talent. Has really good feet and athletic ability but must get stronger at the point of attack.

Although highly unlikely, I wouldn't be completely shocked if someone took a chance on him late in the 1st.

Other than Fisher Johnson & Joekel, there should definitely be at least 1 or more OTs taken in the 1st. Looking at Watson, Fluker, & Armstead, I see 2 of them going in the first from my perspective.

I agree and based on everything I've seen I'd expect it to be Watson and Fluker but Armstead is right there as well. Definitely rooting for the kid. Kinda have a soft spot for small school kids, especially HBCUs.

Terren Jones from Alabama State is another one to watch from the same conference. Big kid, almost 6-8, 340-pounds. Could be a mid-late round sleeper candidate at RT or also move inside to OG. He actually made 1st team All-SWAC over Armstead, who was a 2nd team selection.

Yeah I've been on Jones for a while as well. I follow HBCU football almost as closely as major college football and many had Jones as the top prospect coming out of the HBCU ranks this year until Armstead's meteoric rise.

He has pretty good feet for such a big kid. Could be quite a gem in the 4-5 round.

I'm really high on Brandon Williams, DT from Missouri Southern St. and B.W. Webb, DB from William & Mary, is a solid player as well. Robert Alford SE Louisiana is good too and brings return ability.

Some HBCU guys:

Keith Pough, LB, Howard

Kejuan Riley, S, Alabama State

Derrick Washington, RB, Tuskegee (transfer from Missouri, was a finalist for the Harlon Hill in his lone season at TU (DII version of the Heisman))

Chris Slaughter, WR, Fort Valley State ( transfer from Auburn, dominated at FVSU last two years, 6-3, 180)

Xavier Boyce, WR, Norfolk State (transfer from VA Tech, 6-4, 220)

Daronte McNeil, RB, Elizabeth City State (Transfer from ECU, rushed for 4300+ yards and 50 TDs the last 3 seasons)

David Carter, RB, Morehouse (only played 8 games this year but still rushed for 800+ yards and 13 TDs; had 1400+ yards and 19 TDs as a JR)

All these guys probably won't get drafted but may get a shot at being UDFAs. There are others as well but these were just off the top of my head.

ive heard reports from kirwan that he could have gone to a big name college, but he promised his team mates he would stay. pat kirwan also said that hes very smart when it comes to football and compared himself to joe staley....

He won't come in and be Matt Kalil as he still has a lot of things to work on. In fact, I'd probably start him out at RT for the first year or so to let him get use to the speed of the game, similar to how the Cowboys did with Tyron Smith.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
