Andrus Peat

Offensive Tackle

Height: 6' 7"

Weight: 312 lbs


Strengths: Andrus Peat has been NFL bound since his freshman year at Stanford. He started 13 games that year, earning the left tackle spot due to his prowess at the position. His sophomore season, Peat started all 14 games at left tackle for the Cardinal. He earned All-Pac-12 second-team honors as well as Stanford's Most Outstanding Sophomore Deswarte-Ellar Award. His junior season would prove to be the best of his college career. Once again, he started every game at left tackle. This year, coaches chose Peat for All-Pac-12 first team honors. He is very quick on his feet for such a large man. He has excellent vision during pass protection and is a patient lineman, letting the defender to come to him

Weaknesses: For such a large presence on the line, Peat needs to improve his run protection. He obviously has great lower body strength but does not take advantage of it. He has been called "soft" by some scouts and does not play with the intensity and nastiness many want to see from him.

Bottom Line: Andrus Peat has chosen to forgo his senior year at Stanford and enter the 2015 NFL Draft. He has the size and strength to play in the NFL. Most of his deficiencies can be worked on with the right  coaching. Peat will be a good investment for a team needing help on the offensive line.

Projected Round: 1

Team He Fits Best On: Redskins, Buccaneers, Jaguars, Jets
