Former Arkansas-Pine Bluff offensive lineman Terron Armstead burst onto the scene with a jaw-dropping 4.65 time in the 40-yard dash at NFL Combine in 2013.
Just two years into his professional football career with the New Orleans Saints, at least one teammate sees Pro Football Hall of Fame potential in Armstead’s future:
“There is no ceiling for him,” Zach Strief told the New Orleans Times-Picayune . “He could be one of the best of all-time. I believe that.”
Armstead, 25, has only spent one season as a full-time starter, but he carries himself with the confidence of a veteran.
“Every year he’s gotten better,” said Saints offensive line coach Brett Ingalls. “This guy is a super athlete. He’s a confident guy, and he’s a tough guy, and he’s a smart guy. All of it doesn’t surprise us.”
The former All-SWAC star said he appreciates the feedback from his teammates.
“It’s great that he thinks that way about me,” Armstead said.
