Pos: 
Strong ball carrier who has been very productive when healthy. Runs hard on the inside, gets a lot of momentum going up the field and keeps his feet moving. Effectively uses blocks, runs with authority and constantly takes it north/south. Remains disciplined with assignments and squares into opponents as a blocker. Plays to his speed, runs with good lean and falls forward when tackled. Solid pass catcher out of the backfield.
Neg: 
Displays no ability to create yardage or improvise if plays break down. Loses a lot of momentum when he tries to quickly cut back against the grain. Struggles to turn the perimeter.
Analysis: 
Armstead is a ball carrier who does the little things well but has limitations outside the tackles. He'll be a solid third back who should be a productive rotational ball carrier for a long time to come.
