    Sleeper first round pick: Terron Armstead

    I see Lane Johnson, Eric Fisher, and Luke Joeckel all being gone before the Steelers pick at 17.

    Does anyone see Terron Armstead as a possible sleeper pick? He is being favorably compared to Duane Brown. He is super athletic and I think is going to be a fantastic LT some day.

    Terron Armstead
    Position: Offensive tackle
    School: Arkansas Pine-Bluff
    Measurements: 6-foot-5, 306 pounds.
    40 time: 4.71 seconds. Vertical: 34.5 inches. Broad jump: 112 inches.225-pound bench press: 31 reps
    Draft projection: Second round

    Lowdown: The breakout star of last month's NFL Scouting Combine, Armstead ran a mind-boggling 4.71-second 40-yard dash, breaking the record for offensive linemen. ... Played in 37 college games, and started all 12 at left tackle as a senior in 2012. ... Put himself on the radar with a solid performance at the East-West Shrine game, which led to an invite to the Senior Bowl. Showed in those games he didn't look out of place playing against a higher level of competition. ... Has the athletic ability to pull when needed, and can get to the second level of the defense. ... Has 34-inch arms, and above-average strength for the position. ... Improved his draft stock as much as any player at the combine. Needs to add strength in his lower body. ... Can struggle against bull rushes. ... Will still have to answer questions about the sub-par competition he faced in the Southwestern Athletic Conference. ... Similarly, will have to prove he's more than a "workout warrior."
    Was recruited by several FBS schools coming out of high school in Illinois, but chose FCS Arkansas-Pine Bluff because it offered him an opportunity to play football and participate in track and field. Armstead was a second-team All-American selection last year in the shot put, and has won eight SWAC championships.
    He said it: "I've been blessed with a unique skill-set. I'm extremely light on my feet for a big guy, I have to say. It's a blessing. It was nothing that was coached."
    I know a lot of people see him as a 2nd rd pick. I could see, however, him go at pick 17 to 32.

    That's a Tom Donahoe pick

    Draft him, and stick him at ILB. Can you imagine a guy who runs a 4.71 and weighs 300+ clogging up the middle?

    Yes, I can. Wearing a #99 jersey and was timed at 4.6. Levon was a beast!

    He had an amazing combine and is obviously an amazing athlete, but has more risk than I would prefer from a first round pick.

    He is risky, but a lot of people passed on Duane Brown for the same reasons. I'm not saying that Terron Armstead is the next Duane Brown, but he is a potential first round pick no one seems to think will go in the first round.
