ESPN's Steve Muench compares Oregon DL Arik Armstead to Calais Campbell and Jared Odrick.
"The 6-8 Calais Campbell is a better example if we are comparing players with this kind of rare height, but Jared Odrick may be the best comparison overall," Muench wrote. "His scheme versatility, ability to stuff the run and potential to develop into a productive power rusher coming out of Penn State in 2010 remind me of Armstead now." Stats & Information Group's Sharon Katz, on the other hand, offers Ra'Shede Hageman, Quinton Coples, Gerald McCoy and Margus Hunt as comparisons to Armstead, the fourth-tallest DL measured at the combine since 2006, based on the numbers. "Given his height, weight (292), relatively short arms and large hands, he's appears to be a heavier version of DEs Coples and Hunt," she wrote. "Armstead's combine tests more closely mirror a pair of athletic defensive tackles, Hageman and McCoy."
