Roman Harper Advocates For Jalyn Armour-Davis
Former Alabama safety and Super Bowl champion Roman Harper advocated for cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis on the SEC Network this week.
“Look, if Anthony Averett, who is smaller than Jalyn Armour-Davis can go in the fourth round to the Baltimore Ravens, then this guy will able to go in the same round with the same ability,” said Harper. “He’s bigger. He ran a sub 4.4 at the combine. You love his ability and his size. He’s a 6-foot corner. If anything in the later rounds, I’m ready to pick a project at that point.”
Armour-Davis took part in Alabama’s Pro Day on Wednesday. His technique, length and fluidity were on full display as he went through position drills. On tape, Armour-Davis plays with excellent patience and discipline. He's a technician at the position with great hands and feet.
“Alabama CB Jayln Armour-Davis had a great day yesterday at pro day,” said ESPN draft analyst Jordan Reid. “Smooth/easy transition skills, and caught the ball well.”
“At 6-1, 197, he’s a big corner that’s just hitting the early stages of his development after being mostly a special teams player prior to last season.”
The Mobile, Ala., native is an intriguing prospect because he only has the one season as a starter. In 11 games this past season, Armour-Davis registered 32 tackles, four pass breakups and three interceptions, earning second-team All-SEC honors. He was one of two Power 5 cornerbacks with three-plus interceptions and zero touchdowns allowed in coverage in 2021.
Armour-Davis is viewed as a day three prospect, but after a strong showing at the NFL Combine and the Alabama Pro Day, his stock could be on the rise.
