Ray-Ray Armstrong, Senior, Safety, Miami
Few safeties boast a combination of size and speed that can match Ray-Ray Armstrong. The 6-4 Miami strong safety is a legitimate 6-4 and can run a 4.45 40. The NFL will drool over those numbers. Armstrong immediately played a role on the Hurricanes defense as a true freshman in 2009, including a seven tackle outing over a highly ranked Oklahoma team.
Armstrong really burst onto the national scene in 2010. Only a sophomore, Armstrong ranked third on the team with 79 tackles and added a team high three interceptions. The Miami defense certainly had some issues, but the unit was much improved in 2010 compared to 2009 and Armstrong played a big part in that resurgence.
With another good season in 2011, Armstrong could leave school early and enter the 2012 NFL Draft. With his size and pure skills, the NFL will take a chance on him even if his consistency or lack thereof, remains an issue. No matter when he goes pro, Armstrong does need to prove that he can keep it up or he will fail to move up into the first round range.
