Draft Analysis:

It looks like Armah will be in contention for Carolina's fullback job. He also brings some versatility in the pass game as a receiver. --Mark Dulgerian

Analysis

Strengths

Durable and tough. Two-way player who was named all-conference first team defensive end and second team tight end. Thick through his chest and lower body carries good mass. Pumped out 26 bench reps. Has experience as in-line blocker against bigger foes. Has desired demeanor to be a blocker. Has athleticism in space and is a viable consideration as blocker/pass-catcher in two-back scheme.

Weaknesses

Will need much more experience as a lead blocker. Spent most of his time as a tight end and will have to learn to find targets in space and land a blow on them. Is a little too short to be considered for h-back or move tight end duties. Needs to bring his feet with him through contact for better block sustaining.

Draft Projection

PFA

Bottom Line

Armah has some talent to build on, but finding the right positional fit for him is the first challenge a team will face. Teams seem to be split on where to play him with some seeing outside linebacker, some seeing inside linebacker and some seeing him as a fullback. I see him as a lead blocker pairing with a zone-heavy team looking for some size and ability to catch the ball out of play-action.
