Rams workout Arkansas Pine Bluff offensive lineman Terron Armstead

USA TODAY Sports

The Rams need help on the offensive line. They will draft a player to either start day one, or slowly build up into a starting role around mid-season in his rookie year.

With the NFL Draft quickly approaching, the St. Louis Rams are beginning the process of getting prospects together for workouts. Recently the Rams brought in University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff offensive linemen Terron Armstead for a workout.

Who is Armstead? Well, this prospect's stock has been rising ever since the East and West Shrine Game earlier this year. He's been mocked as being drafted between the mid-round second round and the beginning of the fourth round. There were even rumblings out there that he could go as high as the first round.

If you have heard of Armstead, it was most likely around the time of the combine, where he did so well that even Torry Holt took notice.

The thing about Armstead is that although he has the athleticism that every offensive line coach will drool over, most of the hype around Armstead is based on his potential.

The question is where do you play him? Gil Brandt senior analyst for NFL.com had this to say about Armstead.

Armstead is a very good athlete who has everything needed to be a starter by his second year in the NFL. He even got involved in a skill-position capacity last season, handling the ball on a tight end screen against Jackson State; he is versatile enough to contribute at tight end or defensive end. He's also a really smart kid.

So does he play somewhere on the offensive line, maybe even play tight end or defensive end? He will most likely play on the offensive line. If I were to guess, he would begin his career at guard, and maybe develop into an offensive tackle, or a team would leave him at guard. His versatility must interest the Rams, and with their injury concerns on the offensive line, it wouldn't be a surprise if they draft him.
