Draft Buzz: Armstead surprises
INDIANAPOLIS -- The thing that stood out was the athleticism of the offensive lineman. It's better than anything I've ever seen here at the combine. I think it has to do with college teams spreading their offenses out, whether in the passing game or the running game. You just see so few bad bodies compared to what you used to see five, 10 years ago.
What stood out were the 40 times. Six guys ran sub-5.0 40-yard dashes. Two guys broke the all-time offensive line record for 40-yard dash times at the combine. Terron Armstead, an OT from Arkansas-Pine Bluff, ran a 4.71 and OT Lane Johnson from Oklahoma ran a 4.72.
