Armstrong is an adroit DB, that diagnoses plays well. In zone coverage, he has enough lateral quickness to match up with any wide receiver. In the off-season, he should look to add more bulk to his frame, as well as work on his overall pass coverage ability. Here is a link https://www.hudl.com/profile/7934089/Xavier-Armstrong.
