2. Andrus Peat- Offensive Tackle- Stanford
Size: 6’7 316lbs

untitled (39)

Strengths:

  • Tall, good frame- skinny, but large legs
  • Nice wide base
  • Powerful- will drive defenders off the ball
  • Explosive hips
  • Understands protections- knows where to be

Analysis: Peat is on of the most powerful lineman in the draft.  Starting day one, Peat can be a dominant run blocker in the NFL, and will easily drive defenders off the ball.  Coming from Stanford’s system, Peat has the knowledge and IQ to understand protection schemes.  At 6’7 Peat’s wide base is a for to be reckoned with (his lower body is all muscle).  He is also versatile with his ability to play either left or right tackle.

Need to Improve:

  • Technique
  • Lunges in pass protection
  • Has trouble blocking to 2nd level
  • Stays engaged with defender too long

Analysis: Peat’s physical skill set in unquestioned, but at times in college he came off the ball high and “lunged” at defenders–which would cause him to be beat regularly by NFL defensive lineman.  Peat seems to lock on to his initial defender and does not break away quick enough to reach the second level in time–this is crucial in zone blocking schemes.  Until his footwork/technique is mastered, I would say Peat projects more as right tackle until he can switch to the left side.

Round Prediction: 1
