ANALYSIS: Going into his senior year, the most minutes Armstrong played in a season were the 12.4 he averaged as a junior. He played 27.7 minutes a game as a senior and averaged 9.7 points per game, 6.6 rebounds and 3.1 blocks. Armstrong clearly progressed nicely, but there is still a raw element to his game, partly due to not playing much in college. However, big men with long arms who can run the floor and block shots will always make scouts look up from their notebooks. An athletic player, Armstrong is an explosive leaper who relishes rim-rocking slam dunks. He always hustles and plays with an enthusiasm that far too many big men seem to lack. Although he has good hands and catches the ball well, he is turnover prone, averaging 2.3 a game his senior season. The rawest part of his game is on the offensive end, and he does not have any signature moves. Last season, he showed signs of developing a jump shot in the lane. But it seems in the NBA, at least in the beginning of his career, most of his baskets will come on hustle plays. Even though Armstrong is an excellent shot blocker, he has to work on not falling for pump fakes to stay out of foul trouble. Armstrong has shown he has solid rebounding skills. He had six games last season with 10 or more rebounds. With most of his baskets coming on the inside, Armstrong shot 61-percent last season. He also has promise as a free-throw shooter for a big man, shooting 69 percent his senior campaign. Against Quinnipiac last December, Armstrong scored a career-high 26 points on 11-of-14 shooting. Due to the lack of quality big men in the draft, Armstrong will likely be a late first or early second round pick. He has a lot to learn because of his inexperience, but he has some upside because of his athleticism and willingness to rebound and block shots. His mental toughness and confidence can be shaken easily, but as he plays more that should improve.
