Recent News's Charles Davis believes Oregon junior DL Arik Armstead "could use another year in school."
Yahoo! Sports recently reported that Armstead is "heavily leaning" towards declaring, and his father is already speaking with agents. Davis believes that's a bad idea. "He has a basketball background and is a very intriguing athlete who improved as the season progressed," Davis wrote. "Armstead is like an erector set -- he's big and long-levered. Another year of working on maintaining leverage against blockers and getting stronger could help him a lot." Even so, Armstead is likely NFL-bound. The defensive lineman has been told by NFL evaluators that he's a potential first-round pick. "Can see him going very, very high," one AFC West GM said in a document obtained by Yahoo!. "Has everything you want out of a [defensive lineman]. Height, length, power, pass rush ability. Needs to show more consistency, but raw potential is very intriguing. First round." Dec 18 - 1:44 AM
