Physical Attributes – Tall, long levered, lean build. Shows great initial get off, burst and acceleration for size. Really fast and explosive. A long strider. Would like to know true top end speed but can say off this exposure the play speed shows he can separate from defenders with ease. Shows good twitch and the ability to stick his foot in the ground and burst both on shorter routes and at full speed at the top of the longer routes. Reminds me of a young Amari Cooper when I was at Alabama in 2012. A very fluid athlete with soft hands and a big catch radius who is explosive and capable of hitting a homerun any given play. As Armani continues to develop his skill level will also improve as well. He has a high, high ceiling based of the projection of his future physical attributes.
Position Specific Skills – I like a lot. Not only does he have the size and length but he has elite initial get off and elite top end speed who can stab his foot in the ground at full speed and then create even further separation than he already has. A refined route runner with the ability to drop weight and run double cuts. He shows soft hands. His run after catch is probably what is most impressive.
Overall – Speed kills and Amari has it. His length, his burst and acceleration, his ability to drop weight and show elite burst out of cuts, and his long speed separates Armani from most WR’s in his class. I see Armani as a player that can not only contribute but contribute early in his career. A player that has a huge upside and can end up one of the best, most explosive players in America when it is all said and done in 4 or 5 years from now.
