Despite McCloud's lack of prototypical size for the position, he has proven himself a clutch performer for the Tigers over the past two seasons. The 13-game starter was named honorable mention All-ACC as an all-purpose player in 2017, making plays as a receiver (49 receptions, 503 yards, one touchdown), rusher (six carries, 30 yards), and punt returner (25 returns, 303 yards, one touchdown). McCloud played in all 14 games of the team's national championship run, starting five contests. He caught 49 passes for 472 yards and two scores, as well as returning 21 punts for 176 yards. As a freshman, McCloud played in 12 games with one start, caught 29 throws for 251 yards and a touchdown, ran seven times for 48 yards, and averaged 31.9 yards on seven kickoff returns. The Tampa native rushed for over 4,000 yards in his final two years in high school but was the second-ranked receiver prospect nationally by Rivals.com.

Overview
Armstrong is a man without a position and it will be up to an NFL team to best decide where to utilize him. He lacks the physical and play traits teams look for at either receiver or cornerback, but he has some punt return potential that could help his cause. He'll need a strong Combine to help his draft stock, but practice squad may have to be his goal for this season.
Strengths
  • Used in gadget packages with plenty of experience with jet sweeps and receiver screens
  • Good straight-line speed
  • Former high school running back with good strength in lower half to break tackles as runner
  • Catches with good focus
  • Shows ability to work through contested catches
  • Solid and safe in his duties as punt returner
  • Has had brief experience at cornerback
Weaknesses
  • Has never had a true position fit
  • Lacks suddenness out of his cuts and breaks
  • Doesn't have true receiver tape
  • Averaged under three yards at the point of the catch during his career
  • Fails to uncover with burst and is reliant upon scheme for his catches
  • Has as many career fumbles (4) as touchdown catches
  • Missed games due to injury in two of his three seasons
  • Lacks explosiveness as punt returner
