    Sounds like a playah...

    Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - He affectionately drew the nickname "Terronnosaurus Rex," but Arkansas-Pine Bluff senior Terron Armstead more resembled a raptor at the NFL Combine last month.

    Armstead basically flew down the runway while he clocked 4.71 seconds in the 40-yard dash - a new Combine record for offensive linemen.

    Add in Armstead's other measurables at the Combine, including 31 reps with the 225-pound bench press and a broad jump of 9 feet, 4 inches, plus his performances at the East-West Shrine Game and the Senior Bowl, and he has been one of the fastest risers across NFL draft boards in the last two months.

    The 6-5, 306-pound Armstead has gone from being considered a late-round pick on the final day of the April 25-27 draft to a second- or third-round selection on the second day.

    Armstead turned heads with the record run at the Combine, but it was equally important for the Southwestern Athletic Conference product to have a 1.64- second time in the first 10-yard split because offensive linemen generally don't have to run any farther down the field on a play. His fast split ranked second to Oklahoma's Lane Johnson among O-linemen.

    Hmmm. The plot thickens. If indeed the Rams find a trading partner for Roger Saffold to acquire more picks, young Mr. Armstead could find himself as our starting right tackle or at minimum in a rotational role for the Rams. I wonder if he might be considered for a role at guard. Of course its dangerous to read too much into these pre-draft visits.

    Go Rams!

    At a 4.71 and 300 lbs, I say we plug him in at RB on goal line situations and watch that Terronosauras chase down those tiny raptors the ***** like to call linebackers.
