Second-year LT Terron Armstead has been standing out in Saints camp.

Armstead's starting job has been assured since May, but he's put on a show in camp. "You love everything you see," Drew Brees said. "Not only just his talent, but you see it in his eyes. ... What I see with him is intensity and confidence, and that is what you love to see in a left tackle, ready for any type of challenge." A strong 2014 will lock Armstead in on the blindside for years to come.

Terron Armstead is the only left tackle currently on the Saints' roster.

The Saints have all their chips in Armstead's basket. The second-year athletic freak took over on Drew Brees' blind side for the final four games of last season, getting embarrassed by Greg Hardy in his debut before rebounding with three straight solid outings. We're confident Armstead will be a plus pass protector and dominator in the screen game.

Saints LT Terron Armstead will undergo "minor" hand surgery Tuesday morning.

Armstead, the 75th pick in April's draft, appeared in four games as a rookie -- including the playoffs. He was dominated by Greg Hardy in his debut but stepped up and played well on Drew Brees' blind side in the postseason. Armstead should be ready for OTAs and has a firm grip on left-tackle duties for 2014.

Coach Sean Payton said Monday rookie Terron Armstead will "absolutely" remain the Saints' starting left tackle going forward.

Armstead got torn up by Greg Hardy early in Sunday's loss, but improved as the game went on and that's what the coaches want to see. Payton said he was "extremely encouraged" by Armstead's in-game improvement. The Saints play the Bucs in Week 17, and Payton says he'll approach it "like a playoff game."

Making his first NFL start in Sunday's Week 16 loss to Carolina, Saints third-round pick Terron Armstead coughed up three sacks and committed two false start penalties.

The Saints benched LT Charles Brown for Armstead, who was part of a line that served up six sacks of Drew Brees against the Panthers. Armstead had lots of trouble against Panthers RE Greg Hardy early, but settled in some later in the game. "I felt like he played great, and our line played great," Brees said. "Some of those sacks were on me, just getting the ball out."

The Saints will start third-round LT Terron Armstead in Sunday's Week 16 game at Carolina.

Coach Sean Payton is taking no prisoners as he tries to get the Saints' ship pointed back in the direction of the Super Bowl. He cut K Garrett Hartley on Tuesday and has now stripped Charles Brown of his starting job. A favorite of the draftnik community, Armstead is a freakish athlete who set the Combine record for offensive linemen by running a 4.71 forty. The question will be how ready he is after playing his college ball at Arkansas-Pine Bluff. We'll find out quickly as he makes his first NFL start against the Panthers' fearsome front seven. Ideally, the Saints will use Armstead's skill set to emphasize their screen game and get Pierre Thomas/Darren Sproles in space with a convoy.

Saints rookie LT Terron Armstead has leapfrogged Jason Smith on the depth chart, and is now running behind only Charles Brown.

Smith has been having a rough camp, so it's hardly a surprise. Armstead could easily jump Brown before camp is through, but the Saints are wisely taking things slowly with their raw third-round pick. Brown has made just eight career starts. Armstead is the more talented player.

Third-round pick Terron Armstead is considered the favorite for the Saints' left tackle job.

Armstead worked with the first-team offense throughout OTAs and will enter training camp as the leading candidate to protect Drew Brees' blindside. He should face little in the way competition from injury-prone Charles Brown and Jason Smith.

Saints rookie OT Terron Armstead has bulked up to 315 pounds after weighing in at 306 at February's Combine.

One of the questions about Armstead coming out was his "anchor," and added weight should help make him a more powerful player at the point of attack. Alex Marvez reports the rookie has run with the first-team throughout OTAs, and considers him the favorite to start over Charles Brown and Jason Smith.

Saints OT Terron Armstead has been getting reps with the first-team in OTAs.

With oft-injured Charles Brown working his way back from another minor injury, Armstead and mega-bust Jason Smith have been rotating at left tackle. With Smith being an unrealistic option, the battle to start will be between Brown and Armstead. Brown should be favored to win, but another injury could open the door for the rookie to win the job.
Thu, May 30, 2013 02:02:00 PM

Saints agreed to terms with No. 75 overall pick OT Terron Armstead on a four-year contract.

Armstead set a Combine record among offensive linemen with his 4.71 forty, and he has drawn comparisons to Texans All-Pro LT Duane Brown. Armstead will compete with 2010 second-rounder Charles Brown for the starting left tackle job.

Saints GM Mickey Loomis "wouldn't rule out" third-round OT Terron Armstead winning the left-tackle job.

"There's a competition there," Loomis said. The Saints are thin on Drew Brees' blindside, so it's not exactly a surprise. Armstead has prototypical size and freaky measurables, but is jumping from the SWAC to NFL. Left tackle would be a daring spot to stick a player who was squaring off with the likes of Jackson State and Prairie View A&M last season. With just Charles Brown and Jason Smith to compete with Armstead, the Saints may not be done adding bodies.

The Times-Picayune calls third-round OT Terron Armstead the "most intriguing player" in the Saints' draft class.

The Saints have major concerns at left tackle. Jermon Bushrod is in Chicago, Charles Brown has never been able to stay healthy and Jason Smith has been a bust. Armstead is raw coming out of Arkansas Pine-Bluff, but his measurables are off the charts. He could be protecting Drew Brees' blind side sooner rather than later.

Saints selected Arkansas-Pine Bluff OT Terron Armstead with the No. 75 overall pick.

It's an excellent fit in terms of both value and need for the Saints, who lost LT Jermon Bushrod in free agency. Armstead (6-foot-4 3/4, 306) set an NFL Combine record for offensive linemen with a 4.71 forty-yard dash, and tied Oklahoma's Lane Johnson for this year's fastest ten-yard split (1.64). His vertical was 34 1/2 inches. Drawing pre-draft comparisons to Texans All-Pro Duane Brown, Armstead is a long-armed (34") left tackle with rare movement skills and sky-high upside. Concerns are his level of competition and a medical red flag on Armstead's back, discovered during pre-draft exams. Along with a shoulder issue from last season, it's why the athletic freak slipped this far.
